How to transfer videos from a Sanyo M1 cell phone to a PC
Question: How can i transfer my Videos taken/captured on my Cell Phone Sanyo M1 and transfer them to my PC? Your input will be greatly appreciated.
Answer: The Sanyo M1 is a great phone, and you can transfer videos to your PC by using a USB Data Cable that provides a link between your phone and PC, or with Bluetooth that gives you a wireless connection.
USB Data Cable
You can transfer as many videos, photos or ring tones as you like to your cell phone for free using a USB Data Cable that connects your computer to your cell phone.
Windows XP or Windows Vista don't come with software to recognize your phone and handle the file transfer, so you'll need a copy of DataPilot, which works with all major phone types.
Fire up DataPilot, and plug one end of the usb data cable into your phone and the other end into the usb port on your computer. DataPilot will display a list of the existing photos, ring tones, and videos on your cell phone.
Choose the folder on your PC that contains the files you want to move, select the files (or folders) and click the transfer button to copy them over to your cell phone. You can also copy the other way, and use DataPilot to transfer photos or ring tones from your cell phone to your computer.
You can buy a usb data cable on the DataPilot website if you don't have one already, and their software works with all major phone types.
The Cell Phone Shop also has an affordable data cable plus driver kit that lets your computer recognize your Sanyo phone. The USB cable supports data transfer including ringtones and datebook sync, and the software it comes with lets you use your cell phone as a wireless modem and connect to the Internet on your laptop for email and fax transmissions.

You can also transfer videos and photos from your Sanyo M1 to your PC using a USB BlueTooth Dongle, which comes with the same software that works with the data cable, that I mentioned above.
The Bluetooth Dongle supports file and data transferring, wireless LAN access, internet dial-up connection and data synchronization between your PC computer/laptop and your bluetooth enabled phone/PDA. It also supports Bluetooth connection between your system and any Bluetooth-enabled printers or wireless access points.
DataPilot is another useful software program that provides universal data transfers from all types of phones.
DataPilot also allows end-users to manage their contact information, access the Internet and check e-mails while on the go, personalize their cell phone with ring tones and images and stay in sync with their appointments in Outlook or Outlook Express. It supports over 400 different handsets in the market, including the most popular phones from Motorola, Samsung, Sanyo, Nokia, Palm, etc.
Here are several noteworthy DataPilot features, and a link to the DataPilot information/download page.
- Transfer your MP3 and MIDI files stored on your computer to your cell phone free via data cables.
- Download and upload wallpapers, pictures and movies and avoid expensive over-the-air MMS charges
- Backup your cell phone address book in case you lose, break, damage, or change your handset
- Keep your cell phonebook in sync with your Outlook, Outlook Express, and Palm Desktop contacts
- Stay on top of your business schedule with easy sync of your cell phone calendar with your Outlook appointments

Last but definitely not least, Ringtone Media Studio makes it super easy to transfer videos from your cell phone to your PC using Bluetooth. Just select the video files of your choice, and click the arrow to move them from your phone to your PC (and vice versa).
The other thing I love about Ringtone Media Studio is how easy it is to make ring tones. You just click on the song and drag the mouse pointer to choose how long you want the song to play, and the program automatically converts it to the right format for your phone.
Also, if you enter coupon code RMS30 during checkout you'll get an instant 30% off Ringtone Media Studio from Rickysays.com. (offer only available online through RickySays.com - enjoy!)
As you can see, there are a few options for helping you transfer videos from your Sanyo M1 phone to your PC (or from any phone for that matter). I hope that one of them will meet your needs.
