    Media card hidden files

    Advertisement



    Remember when on the pearl you could create a folder from the computer and put items in there but te ony way to view them on the media section was to explore the memory card... the Curve seams to be picking up even that folder.

    Anyone know how to make it stop so i can hide my files again...?

    Odd... so you save the folder outside from pics, music, videos, and ringtones in your media and it still shows up on your BB?

    Yup, I've tried to make a folder inside folders and the media still picks up the files outside of the regular folders...~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I can

    I just disable access to media card.
    go to option
    media card media card support. turn it off when you don't want anyone to access and on when you want to.
    you can also set a password so if it is plugged into a computer they cant access it until you enter pass on bb

    A standard trick for making a folder invisible on many operating systems is to change its name to something illegal, say a single control character (ASCII DELete is popular).

    Just an idea -- I cannot test it since my BB does not take media cards.

    Try this out. http://download11.getjar.com/downloa...1/FileLock.jad
    BTW, the link is OTA.

    I don't think there is any encryption with this program, it looks like it only adds an extension to the file/s, but for what you explain I think it will work out just fine.

    Here is a very good explanation, http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...lackberry.html
