    Default What is the DCIM/100ANDRO folder for?

    Can someone please inform me of what the DCIM/100ANDRO folder on the microSD Cards is used for? I have never see anything go into it.

    DCIM is for photos and videos. If you don't have your camera set to save the files there, it will be empty.

    Photos & videos are normally placed in the Camera folder within DCIM but what about the 100ANDRO folder which is another subfolder within DCIM? I have also never seen anything placed here.

    DCIM (Digital Camera Images) can have anything under it. Fuji uses 100_Fuji. Android creates a 100ANDRO folder, but uses the Camera folder for the camera.

    These responses haven't actually answered the original question, so I'm re-asking. What is DCIM/100ANDRO for? I know that DCIM is for camera files, and I know that DCIM/Camera is where my photos and videos go. Why did Android create the DCIM/100ANDRO directory?
