This is how you move the videos and pictures to the computer from the kin2.  Open up the Zune software on the computer.  Then plug the kin2 into the computer with the usb cord.  Then open up the phone icon in the zune program.  Click on video on the program.  Your videos will show on the zune program on the computer.  Then hold your mouse button down and move the video to the computer icon in the lower left hand corner.  Your video is now on the computer.  You can then unplug the phone from the computer.  I just did this, so I know it works.

Did you download and install the Zune software to your computer? I believe you have to manage photos through Zune, in the same way that Apple products are synced with iTunes.

yes. It is all managed through Zune. So Download that first from http://zune.net/en-us/products/software/download/default.htm . After software download (and computer restart) Zune will open up everytime you plug your phone into your computer. Fairly intuitive. Takes a little to get used to but not too hard. I've ony been playing around for a day with it but seems pretty cool.

Arrghh!  All afternoon on phone with the Zune people and PCD (Personal Communication Devices; company that manufactures the Kin).  Still CANNOT download photos from phone to Zune.  Can upload photos from computer to phone only, but something gets screwy when I try to get the photos off the phone to Zune.  Tech support was baffled too and only suggested that I reinstall Zune AGAIN (for 4th time).

 

What good is a 5 megapixel camera if they stay on the tiny screen of your phone???  I am ready to call Verizon and return the phone.

I just downloaded 85 pictures from my phone(KIN TWOm) to the computer through Zune. Worked perfectly.
