    i have found to "hide" pics on memory card

    Advertisement



    This is in response to an earlier post about paasword protecting pics. Not sure on that I have found a way to hide stuff on memory card though. If saving from a web page or camera you need to create a new folder on memory card in a tricky way. When prompted to save, use the explore option to create a new folder in the same place as music, videos, ringtones, pics. If done correctly any body issing your pearl will not see the folder when opening the media folder. The only way to find it is to use the option button (left of trackball) then press explore you can now access the hidden folder. Still not password protected but this may help. Also you can set this up on pearl or with desktop software.

    Re: i have found to "hide" pics on memory card

    step by step instructions


    click media

    when in media folder (with the four big icons (music, pics, video, ringtones))
    press button to the left of trackball
    select the EXPLORE option
    now select media card
    now blackberry
    now it show the same things as the media folder,
    -- its just in actual folder view
    now press button to the left of trackball again
    select make new folder
    I'll use the number "2" for example
    now exit out back to the main screen
    when you select media folderyou will see the giant 4 icons
    go ahead and click around you will not find the folder labeled "2"
    the only to find it with out the desktop software is to
    press the button to the left of trackball when in giant icon media folder
    and select explore.


    you can save from web or camera directly there as well.
    from camera- tell camera where to save
    from web tell web where to save
    (use the explore option when prompted to save to a location)
    you can store just about anything there, docs, pics, mp3's, vids
    they will def be hidden from non blackberry users
    and from most others until they read this post


    hope this helps
