The very easiest way to do it is to use the Dropbox app. It automatically uploads each photo you take with your phone to your PC, in real time. Take a picture, and it's on your PC in seconds.
This may help some others to up load pics to the computer. I found one of my old Vcast usb cords. It appears heavier than a standard usb, it worked great, just as I expected a standard usb to work. Thanks to those of you that responded.
