Default where are my photos?

Please Login to Remove!

This is weird. I have 2 folder with photos in them. I added new ones in my media manager. On my computer it is showing that the photos are in the memory card in my BB. I synced and never saw the photos sync. weird thing is that ALL my photos are gone off my BB but the media manager shows they are there!

what gives?

If you are looking at the Media Card, they are on your BB.

If you are plugged into the USB cable to your PC, the pictures won't be visible ON the BlackBerry until you unplug the USB.

I am obviously doing something wrong in the media manager. when you open media manager there is a split screen. one thing is on top and one is on the bottom. on top is all photos and on the bottom is pictures. what is supposed to be where?

KEEP the BlackBerry UNplugged from the USB.

Then look at your Media icon > My pictures.

1. Go to Options >> Media Card
(some themes or BlackBerrys may call this "Settings >> Media Card")
2. Check the following settings (if they are not listed this way, then change to reflect the following:
a) Media Card Support: On
b] Mass Storage Mode Support: On
c) Auto Enable Mass Storage: Yes
3. Save the settings and exit

That will work, if you haven't deleted your pictures.

Many of us never use, I never do.

Instead, use the Mass Storage Mode as described above.
