Default Hidden pictures...How do I get them back?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all!
I went to media and decided to try to hide some pictures to see if it would work.
Well, it did but know I cannot get them back! I see no options for showing hidden pictures...at least where I am looking.
Can someone help?
Thanks!

Here is what I did... Plug the device into your PC then open a Windows Explorer folder to view the area where the hidden photos are.

Once in that folder right mouse click and select properties. On the General tab you will see area for read only, hidden, and archive

Select all and apply... Now right mouse click again and remove all the check marks... Save the settings, unplug the device and all hidden folders should be back...

I can't find any other way to get them back and this was the olny thing that worked for me...

Ask if you have any questions...

Wirelessly posted (9000)

Open media (not pictures)

Hit the Blackberry button, select explore. Navigate to the folder where the hidden pics are. Now click the Blackberry button again, and select show hidden.
