How to transfer photos from XPERIA P to PC

I can not transfer pics taken in my xperia p to pc. The PC companion is installed. Everytime the phone gets connected through USB to the PC shows windows media player as transfer mode. The right side drop down only showing the music (which was transferred from pc to phone) but the IMAGE or the camera apps cymera  showing no content.

Quick solution.

Go to start menu on windows> select "computer"

Here you will see the phone listed by name or by SD card/Phone Card.

Double click on it and look for the "DCIM" folder, in it you will find the "100ANDRO" folder.

This is the folder that holds all of your pics and videos.

Copy the folder to Pc and rename the folder.

(If using Pc companion, instead of Media go, select "File transfer" and find the DCIM folder on the list.)

Francis.

Do you have a PIN or pattern for the device?

I really need to get them all off my phone as it is full and I have to keep deleting pics to take more, ( I obviously dont want to have post them all to my facebookso I can then delete them). I really cannot find my photos in these 2 mentioned files!!  please help
