But this website clearly explain step by step and all the issue that goes with it, like whether you really need a hard fix or not. Way to go, Pinyin Joe!

But there are many restriction here on the campus’ computer, so I can’t install required program and drivers so that the computer can access my phone card. And I wasn’t even bring my card reader either. So I was thinking of using Dropbox as a medium, as I have installed Dropbox in my smartphone. But then again, to use Dropbox, I also need to install Dropbox, which still imposed with security restriction. So I’m doing a little Googling, and find this awesome article that discussing 5 ways to send files to Dropbox without using Dropbox, aka web solution. Now I’m sharing this with you guys, and also to reminds me where I can visit this awesome article. Right now, the lecturer is on recess, so I’m quickly composing and publishing this article. Quick!

In summary, 5 ways to send files to Dropbox without Dropbox is:

  • FileStork – download files directly from Internet to your Dropbox account.
  • Send to Dropbox – using email service to send files to your Dropbox.
  • DROPitTOme – creates personalized URL which you can upload directly to your Dropbox from your computer browser.
