Am un-techie....but....
Downloading photos from Samsung phone to old computer.
It says 6,011 photos! NO way.
Upon seeing the 6000 photos on my computer, they are thumbnails of what looks like tv or movie that I Do NOT even recognize??!!

They are NOT NOT on my phone!
All I can say is wtf?? And I do not use that term in my language 🙂
Any insight?
Thank you!

Title should be 'when downloading my phone to computer...why are foreign photos showing up..or such..'

They appear on computer as thumbnails si was hard to see what each frame was. Then I saw Amazon emblem and what looked like movie credits.
Went. And found my Amazon shows I downloaded.. found 8 tv shows that I download but never watched.
It's 6000 frames of that show!?
Why, what !??

Aren't movies made up of individual frames?
 
What is the filename extension?
 
The extension is .jpg. That's a regular image file.

Can you right-click on the file and view the Properties?
 
Sounds like you are not downloading the correct folder with your photos in it. Try using a USB cable and connect it to your computer. You can then set your computer up to view the folders on your phone. Drag and drop the folders you want to move over to your computer.

Thanks Scott. This is getting more confusing.
Yes, I hook up USB to computer everytime to download from my phone to computer. Normally it goes into PSE 11 on my old computer.

A few months ago, PSE kept telling me it encountered an error in importing.
Didn't try to figure it out....
Now 3 Months later I just decided to import photos into a photo 'category '
On my computer...
Thats when the 6000 screenshots/thumbnail appeared!!

It is NOT NOT on my phone under 'Gallery' photos that I can find! They just show up when I import photos from Camera to computer??

I have deleted them off computer but very, very strange. :[

320 x 180 is likely an embedded thumbnail.
 
What does that mean?
It did it to a new series I had downloaded but it also did it to 3 old shows I had downloaded months ago.
