I know the pics are on the sd card. Just wanting to know what steps I take to retrieve them from the sd card so they can be back on my phone.
If they are on the SD card, that is all you can do. With the Droid X, when a photo is taken, it is stored on the SD card. It is never stored on the internal memory of the phone, nor can you transfer the photos from the SD card to the internal memory of the phone.
Edit: so what this means is that you never deleted them from your PHONE, as they were never on your PHONE, just the SD card.
