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.
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?
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.

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
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..
