  1. Videos not importing to Photos?


    Hi guys, some help would be much appreciated with this! I somehow downloaded and recorded 60 gigs of videos on my phone and I need to keep it all but I've only got 2 gigs of storage left . I've been trying to transfer it all to my HP spectre x360 2018 (don't know if that should make a difference to it at all) but I've transferred successfully all my photo HEIC and JPG files but I can't transfer my videos?? They don't show up when I attempt to import them through photos and also dont even show up in the DCIM folder? I have a Samsung galaxy s10e 128gb. This is a big problem for me as the footage is really important (concerts and memories of friends), so any help at all would be appreciated Videos not importing to Photos? :) Thank you

    "import" doesn't show up in Photos

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are unable to import photos in the Photos App from your iPhone. Please let us know the details:



    • Which build version of Windows 10 are you using currently? To check type:
      winver in the search bar on the Taskbar and hit
      Enter.
    • Were you able to import the photos earlier?


    I would suggest you to refer the steps mentioned in the article
    Import photos and videos from phone to PC
    and

    Transfer photos and videos from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
    to import photos to your PC.



    However, as you have mentioned that the app closes automatically, I would suggest you to refer the steps mentioned in the article

    Fix problems with apps from Microsoft Store
    and see if that helps.



    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare

    Videos not importing to Photos?

    importing photos

    Thank you for clearing that out. It looks like you are importing the files using the Photos app. When you import photos using this app, the files get imported into your Pictures library. To view these files, refer to these steps:

    • Open File Explorer.
    • On the list of folders on the left side of the window, click on Pictures. You shall see the photos imported from the SD card using the Photos app.

    Another option you have is to import the files solely using File Explorer. Here's how you can do it:

    • Connect the SD card into the computer.
    • Launch File Explorer.
    • Click on This PC.
    • Locate your SD card under Devices and drives.
    • Double-click on the SD card.
    • Manually choose which photos to move into your local folders. Right-click on each photo and choose
      Copy (Ctrl + C) then go to the destination folder then right-click on an empty space in the window and select
      Paste (Ctrl + V).
    • If you are importing all the photos, you can press Ctrl + A on the keyboard to select all of the files. Copy then Paste them into the destination folder.
    • If you are importing selective photos, hold the Ctrl key while clicking on the photos you want to copy. This will let you choose a number of photos instead of selecting all of them like what Step 7 suggests.

    Once you're able to get the hang of the tricks, importing photos will not be a challenge anymore.

    Tell us which method works best for you.

    We're here if you need more help.
