Specs: Windows 7, 4096 D MMb
Download and move pictures and documents from cellphone to pc. I have this Huawei P8 Lite cellphone but try as I might, have no luck performing the above using Hisuite version 10...Any suggestions will be appreciated.

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

Does your PC recognize the phone when attached by a USB cable (generally the charging cable that came with the phone) or do you have a Google account?

Do you have access to wifi on both devices?

You can also buy an micro-SD to SD adapter and do it the old-fashioned way with an SD card reader, or one of these (assuming you have an micro SD-card installed):

NB..if you're moving pictures, they're usually in a folder called DCIM (which is usually on an Micro-SD card, but not always...especially if you don't have one installed) Other files will be in a Download folder or elsewhere.

With the Huawei you download a program called Hisuite and install it on your pc and your phone also. That's where the problem is. The pc seems not to read the phone yet I can upload pics to My Google without a problem. I have changed the port, the cable and you know what but it does not work.

I wouldn't bother with the program. It isn't necessary.
Just use the Windows file explorer.

Hi Jeff. Just expand a little on the exact steps as I'm not an expert on the topic. Thanks.

First, does the PC recognize when the phone is plugged into the USB port? (couldn't really tell by your statement above)

If your pics are being uploaded to Google then you can simply download them from Google to your PC
I do it all lthe time.

Hi M. This is my problem. I followed your step-by-step procedure and downloaded the Zip file. BUT then it shows that dreaded icon with the 6 red and blue little dots with a message: "Application not found'" Here it ends.

I can Backup and Sync through Google but I cannot use Huwaei's own transfer facility which is Hisuite.

If you download multiple files from Google, it will put them all in a zip file which can't be read natively by the Android OS. You will need to install WinZip for Android to unpack them. If you download them one at a time, it will just download the file without zipping it.

downloaded the Zip file

Did you download to your PC?
If so then the error message is simply telling you it cannot find the proper program to UN-zip the file.

Download to your PC one of the Zip programs such as 7-Zip which is Freeware

Anyone please correct me if I am wrong about this...

Dawie,

Do you have an "On-the Go" (OTG) cable? It is a USB
cable for connecting two computers together, or a cell
phone to a computer. If you have been able to transfer
anything at all from your cell phone to your PC by USB
cable, then I think you are using an OTG USB cable.

Once you have an OTG USB cable, and connect your
phone and PC together, Windows should recognize the
phone and you should be able to transfer info from it as
if it was a USB drive, using the Windows file explorer.

There are two modes a phone can be in. Your phone
needs to be in the right mode in order to do that. You
may need to change the mode if Windows doesn't
recognize the phone as a device it can communicate
with. Let us know if you need help with that.


Start with the question T-R-A asked: Does Windows
recognize the phone when you plug them together?

If it does, you are 98% of the way there.

Jeff yes I use a USB cable connection between the pc and the cellphone. Windows does Backup and Sync via the cable but my problem lies with the Hisuite software that Huawei uses for transferring pics and videos and other documents I suppose. I have succeeded to transfer some stuff via the above method but as I explained got stuck with the Zip issue. I have now downloaded the zip software and will test it out today and will post back. Thanks to all for your inputs.

Learning how to Zip and unZip files can be a little bit hard at
first, but once you've done it a few times it will be no problem.

Ok here it is. I have managed to do the job. I downloaded a software program called 7-Zip and it works like a charm. Yes Jeff I need guidance on this mode issue. I don't have a clue what your'e talking about but I'm ready to follow. Thanks to all of you so far. We're getting there.
