I haven't used the media manager plugin for desktop manager for a long time, but as far as I know it is still available even for the newest desktop manager version. Is that not true?
An alternative, though cumbersome, would be to email the pictures to yourself. I know that's not really a good option for hundreds of images, but at least you could get the one's you really want to save, or work on it a little each day over time. ..... But I'd be surprised if you can't get media manager.
