Oooo - this is a controversial one.

 

 

I would add a comma in after "videos", to demonstrate that video is an item distinct from the "other files and data", which I read as being all one lump.


"Following these directions will enable you to save important family pictures, music, videos, and other files and data."

 

I suspect Sheila van den Heuvel-Collins will disagree with me. (Read her blog post on the Oxford Comma >> http://bit.ly/nEXBhi ).
