    LG Octane transfer pictures

    jvcupo1

      Why is it I can not transfer pictures from my LG Octane to my Mac via usb? It works via bluetooth but its sort of a pain.

      Are there drivers Im missing?

          :smileysad:  On page 95 of the manual, under the USB Mass Storage instructions, it says the Mac OS is not supported.

          Be glad you got bluetooth to work .... I haven't heard of many that have been successful with bluetooth!  And if you have an SD card, you can save pix to the card, and then use a card reader in your computer to transfer the pix to the computer.

           

          HTH,

            That stinks that it doesn't support Macs. The fellow who sold the phone to us didn't know that. We bought it partly because we thought we'd be able to get the photos off the phone and onto our Mac.

              I just moved from an I phone to a LG Octane.  So you are telling me I can't transfer my pictures to my Mac and I can't transfer my I tunes to my Octane???

                I don't think phones other than the iPhone support the iTunes file type. And if the manual says Mac OS is not supported with the LG Octane, you will not be able to use a USB cable to connect the two. Like the other poster said, they got Bluetooth to work, you could try doing that.

                  There's no harm in trying.

                   

                  We have a basic phone [VX8700] made by LG that is a few years old; it'll play only mp3 and wmv music files.

                   

                  In contrast, another basic phone [Clout VX8370] made by LG that we own that was launched last summer will play mp3, wmv, AAC [iTunes] and AAC+ music files. However, while we have album art embedded in all those file types, the Clout would display the album art only in the mp3 and wmv files.

                   

                  You could also use a memory card and memory card reader to transfer the music files to your Octane if neither Bluetooth nor USB cable works out for you.

                      Turn bluetooth on for both the phone and the mac, and then wait until they "find" each other, either on your phone or on your mac.

                          Hi SuzyQ,

                          This is my first post, so I'm not sure how this works.  I have an LG Octane and I've taken a few pictures that I'm trying to transfer to my PC using a USB cable.  It's not working and I don't what to do.  I've tried looking in the User Guide to see what I'm missing but I'm not finding the answer.  Can you help?

                          Thanks in advance.

                          Ray2
