When I plug it into my computer I hear it beep, but I am unable to view the phone drive.
did you make sure that you've selected "Disk Drive"? pull the notification drawer down and select Disk Drive .. it might be on Charge Only ya know ...
if you've done that, click on My Computer to make sure the Removable Disk pops up .. and check that way.
Just in case you you are not aware of where the photos are stored on the microSD card, they are in the "DCIM/100Media" folder.
Was any of the information above helpful? Were you able to get your pictures moved to your computer?
