Hi,

I have been trying to find a way of ensuring photos/videos I take go into the DCIM folder on my extra SD card that I have fitted. At the moment it seems a bit random, with some going onto the original 2 gig card installed, and some going onto the 16 gig card that I fitted. I have trawled through the settings and can't seem to find one to help.

I did wonder if it was anything to do with having USB debugging ticked, but unticking it doesn't seem to have made a difference.

Thanks for any help

Iain

where else are they being saved, other than dcim? USB debugging totally different and nothing to do with photos or camera.

Usb debugging has no effect on this,just about everyone here has it enabled,including myself.
I wonder did you start using the internal sd card before using an external one ?
Its possible android system is confused(if thats possible :lol:)as to the correct location of DCIM,seeing as there are now two folders called that.
I would say,move the photos from internal to external DCIM and delete internal DCIM folder,that should solve your problem.

Thanks for your help guys. I had started using the internal card before the external one, so I have now deleted the DCIM folder on the internal card. Perhaps using the internal one first may expain a lot of the other seemingly duplicated folders I have on the memory cards.
