    You should be able to download your photos via a media reader (Kingston make a relatively inexpensive one, though there must be many others).   Using it is a very simple drag and drop operation.

    You'll have to review the instructions on your drive.   My Kingston media reader instructions say it works with both Windows and Apple OS.   Can't verify that as I only use Apple, but that's what they say.   It also says it has no need for a drive.

    For your Downloads folder issue, open a new Finder Window and drag the folder 'Downloads' to the Dock, somewhere between the dotted rule and the Trash  (but not in it ). Let go and that should replace the missing icon.

    Hi Rosy,

     

    Looks like Paul 31 has the answer to one of them.   The downloading of videos I can't help you with I'm afraid; if you don't get a reply try re-posting in iMovie.   Thanks for the points.

    To get back the downloads flder go to finder>your user account>drag and drop the "downloads folder into the dock. Yes you can connect your samsung phone to your iMac. It should bring up a folder of some sort on your desktop. Click on it to access whats on your phone's memory card. Drag and drop the pictures from that folder to your desktop or where you want to keep them. As for the videos im not sure about skydrive so can't be much help. Cheers!

    -Manuel
