Importing photos and videos from the phone

Both Google Picasa and Windows Live Photo Gallery import photos and videos to the same folder e.g. My Pictures. I find it bizarre as to why common logic is not used to import photos to My Pictures and videos to My Videos.

Android 2.2.1

Pre-installed Swype version is much faster with Android 2.2.1. The GPS is also more responsive.

PC2003 HDD configuration

Nothing much has changed since last year’s configuration apart from a failed hard disk drive.

  1. SATA0   – WD1001FALS
  2. SATA1   – None
  3. PATA PM – ST3750640A
  4. PATA PS – WD3000JB
  5. PATA SM – DVDRW
  6. PATA SS – None

I bought a 2 TB hard disk to replace the failed 750 GB. The failed hard disk will be used as an external drive for archival as Archive003. The 2 TB hard disk will be Movies002.

WD1001FALS

Partitioned to 3 partitions: WINDOWS, DOCS and DATA, the WD1001FALS is the booting hard disk in this PC.

DATA is used for Music, ASOT, Photos and all other data storage purposes.

WD3000JB

Labelled as DUMP, it is used for downloading torrents.

ST3750640A

Used as the SERVER hard disk.

It is used to temporarily store Music Videos, Software until they are copied to dedicated external hard disks.
