You need to download the Skydrive app from the store on your L820.

As mentioned above download the skydrive app. Sign in with your live account. Sync it. Then on opening the photos folder you will get an option to download photos on your phone.

 

Other way would be install the skydrive application on the PC & then connecting the phone to PC & copying it from there.

Have skydrive app on phone, no sign in needed, don´t have a clue how to sync it because there´s no options for such.
Have skydrive app on PC but for whatever reason can´t get the phone to connect with PC. PC has W8 and everyone says just plug the phone in and it will tell you how to proceed but not this one...

Re: Pictures from skydrive to Lumia 820

Once you open the skydrive app on the phone, it will automatically start sync. It will take time depending upon your network speed.

 

Is the phone visible in Windows explorer?

Re: Pictures from skydrive to Lumia 820

Network speed should be okay.

I´m using chrome but checked explorer (signed in) and nothing special. I don´t even know what to look for.

This whining must be so frustrating to someone who actually understands these things... sorry.

I´ll try tomorrow with fresh thoughts after a good nite sleep.

I am having the exact same problem, I can see it easy to upload from the phone to skydrive and have all my music saved to skydrive. I can find no way to sync so the music is on my phone. I can do it manually with a cable but surely the point is so that when I buy a song on my phone or computer it is automatically on both? Some help would really be appreciated. I have the skydrive app and whatever I try I cannot get the music from skydrive to my phone without the cable...

For pictures, have you gone to the 'Photo' section and looked in the skydrive albums?

Re: Pictures from skydrive to Lumia 820

Yeah that's not the problem, my pictures are on skydrive and any new ones I take go on skydrive. What I am wanting to do is get my old pictures and more importantly music from skydrive onto my phone. You seem only able to upload to skydrive from the phone, not download. Am I missing something or this just a downside to the phone?

Re: Pictures from skydrive to Lumia 820

u can actually download from Skydrive to phone. Open Photos on phone. You should see a few folders containing photos on Skydrive such as Camera Roll from Skydrive, Mobile uploads from Skydrive and Social uplads from Skydrive. These folders are links to those on your Skydrive. Now select the folder and then the photo you wish to download to your phone. Then tap on 3 dots followed by save to phone.

 Are you sure this works as when i tried it it just saved the photo to the saved pholder on the phone  not the skydrive folder

 Also when you download to phone you have no location options

Photos auto uploaded to Skydrive will appear in the Camera Roll (Skydrive) album. If you download it should go to Saved photos.

Re: Pictures from skydrive to Lumia 820

What his goal is would be having an album on SkyDrive and egtting that to the phone. This is not supported and all images will be in one place (saved). While I can understand why he is asking and why he wants this, we've been discussing this here..

Because there is no other way of creating albums on the phone
