    Question HELP... pictures missing from MicroSD (2gb)

    Advertisement



    So i was on photoshop last night making some sweet 320x240.jpg wallpapers for my curve. Took me almost 2 hours to re-size and adjust the pics to fit perfectly to my TMO zen theme. I did the same thing that i always have in the past, connect via USB, and just save the file straight from my computer to the REMOVEAbLE DRIVE that is my CURVE. But this time something weird happend. ALL THE WALLPAPERS I MADE were not showing up on my curve. I went to MEDIA, PICTURES, and the specific folders were all missing (2 in total) then, i realized.... 1/2 of the rest of my pics were missing too :0(

    so i connected my curve back up to my computer scared that all my pics were gone, and when i opened up the microSD folder... there they are. ALL of them in their GLORY. SO my question is... WHERE ARE MY PICS???

    I am guessing that you tried to look at the photos while still connected to your desktop? Your phone cannot access your media card while you are connected to the desktop and in Mass Storage mode. When you unplug from the desktop you should see all your photos.

    they were in the FILE when i open it on my computer. So when i connect my curve to my computer the FILE pops up and i can see all my pics, ringtones, music, etc. everything in the microSD. but when i UNPLUGG it... i go into my media folder through my curve they are gone. I mean, there are still pics in my pictures file, just not the new folders i created and 1/2 of the pics that were in another folder... gone. SO i CANT SEE THEM when im on my curve.... but i can when i explore the microSD through my PC. hmmm... weird!

    maybe it has to do with creating new folders instead of putting them in the 'pictures' folder?

    I guess if you still are running into the same problem over and over, why not try copying all the files on your computer and then formatting the 2gig card and then copying the data over? Probably a long shot if you've tried everything above.

    I am with Cherri on this...I dont think the BB will see any new "freestanding" folders that are just in the root directory. Try placing the new file folder within your pictures folder. I have done that with no issues.

    Re: HELP... pictures missing from MicroSD (2gb)

    think of it like this...you CAN use your blackberry as a flash drive. but ONLY as a flash drive. meaning that the PC will see your 'folders' but the blackberry itself won't...because it really isn't a flash drive, only the sd card is...

    hopefully i haven't confused you

    cherry and GARY... i have the subFOLDERS in the picture file. it has always worked for me in the past. i had a total of 4 subfolders in my pics folder. now only 2 of the 4 are showing on my curve, and 1/2 of the pics of 1 folder show. when i open up the microSD folder on the computer... they all show.

    alex,

    Do post back and let us know what works!

    I am curious, what size card are you using and how much is stored on it?

    very odd alex..
    i would go with spamblockers and take all the images from your card, move them to your PC then reformat card and replace.

    ::edit:: sorry alex we couldn't figure out the 'why' it happend these little bb's can be very moody
