How to force OPenSuse 12.2 to see mobile device


Hello,
I have an old boost mobile cell phone (Juno) and it has a lot of old photos on it that I would like to get off it. My problem is that OpenSuse will not recognize the device at all. Its so old the only driver that I can locate for it is for windows xp, but I cannot find anywhere to download it from. Or I would use virtualbox. All help is most appreciated.

with opensuse 12.2 ?
I think you are a bit out of luck
OpenSUSE 12 really dose NEED 2+ gig's of ram ( 4 to 8 gig of ram is better )

the system requirements
http://doc.opensuse.org/documentatio...lquick.sysreqs

say 512 meg ram
but with 1 gig it is almost unusable ( 30 sec. to go from the desktop to my home folder)

I apologize for the confusion. My PC has Opensuse on it. I cannot get my PC to open my cell phone to remove my old photos. If I cannot access it I will loss a lot of baby pictures and well that would suck.
Thank you

Multiple threads will lead to more confusion - for all of us.
