    Default My pictures....

    I'm Trying to email some pics I took today but when I connect to my laptop via USB, I'm unable to find my pics. I have about 270 and it's only showing about 30ish. I've always found them the Same way but not now?! Anybody have this problem? Thanks

    Yeh but this is a problem that I've never had up until I tried to send pics yesterday. They are nowhere to be found in the f.drive when plugged into my laptop. When I open a picture on the phone and look at the detail, this is what I get.... but it's not located in dcim when I try to find it

    Try using WiFi File Explorer from the Play store. You can view and download files from your phone over wifi, no need to connect via USB. The paid version will also let you upload files to your phone among other things. I'd try using the free version just to check if you can see your pics that way.

    So that works when I do that way. Why doesn't it show all my pictures when connected through USB?

    Do I need to install new drivers?

    Try AirDroid in the play store. It gives you all that and then some all for free

    Possible, the settings got changed somewhere along the line to put them on the internal sdcard. Look at the details for the pics. Recently had this happen to me. I changed the camera app, but must have missed that setting for a few pics.
    They showed in the gallery, but not when I connected to USB. Which only shows the ext_sd.
    After finding them with Airdroid, then also looked at the pics details in gallery did I figure it out.

    Your pictures are stored on the phone's internal card, not the external SD card. You can change the location the camera stores pictures in the settings for the camera app.

    The external SD card can be accessed as a USB drive like the original EVO 4G. The internal card, however, can only be accessed via the MTP driver HTC supplies. Additionally, other methods mentioned above such as Airdroid work as well. I personally store all my pictures on the external SD card.

    My storage is set to storage card. Not phone storage. Never had this problem up until recently. My OG EVO never had thus problem. I don't remember changing anything at all for the pics. And I have been using the stock camera app since day one.

    Airdroid is 1000x better, faster and more secure than WiFi explorer...plus it allows you to drag and drop files quickly

    I even pulled the sd card and reinstalled it along with rebooting my laptop after removing the battery on it.

    FWIW, this is what I've experienced with trying to connect my phone to my computer... I have a 32GB microSD card that I bought for the OG Evo, so when I got my new Evo, naturally I popped that in.


    When the phone is connect to the computer, if I choose "Media sync", then both the phone's internal memory and my SD card can be seen as separate drives. However, not all of the files on the card are detected by the computer--None of the pictures I took with the phone show up, for instance. But the movies that I had saved on the card previously show up. HTC Sync on the computer does not detect the phone.

    If I choose "Disk Drive", then only my SD card shows up, and all of the files on the card can be seen. Card is temporarily and automatically unmounted on the phone, is remounted when I disconnect the USB cable. HTC Sync on the computer does not detect the phone.

    If I choose "HTC Sync Manager", the USB Debugging mode is turned on automatically, and HTC Sync on the computer detects the phone. Both the internal memory and the SD card show up as separate drives, but still not all the files on the card are accessible.


    AirDroid currently does not support reading content on the SD card. I've asked. They're working on it, however. I don't know if this next issue is true with all Evo LTEs, or just me, but when my screen turns off, the connection to AirDroid is lost.




    If you don't see your files on your external card when connected in "Disk Drive" mode, I suggest you get a microSD adapter so that your computer's SD card reader can read it. Then, when you need to access/transfer files, simply unmount the card or turn off your phone, and read the card directly.

    Maybe it is now, but in the example you gave in post #4 the file path is "/mnt/sdcard/DCIM100/MEDIA". That is the phone's storage, not an external sd card. Yeah, I know it says "sdcard" in the path, but if it were really an external sd card it would say "/mnt/sdcard/ext_sd/DCIM/100MEDIA"

    If you didn't change the setting, then it should still be set to the default, the internal storage. Did you take a moment to look at the settings in the camera app?

    But when the phone is plugged into my laptop and I go to dcim/100media it shows pictures that are months old, some of them out of the 20-30 are pics that I've taken within the last 2 months but none of the pics from the 3-4 weeks are anywhere to be found but they are on the phone, there is roughly 270 of them. Also like I posted before, some if the pictures I Thought I erased are Still viewable. Make sense?! Could it be something to do with memory space/usage?

    I suspect some of your pictures may be in the "phone storage", while the rest are on your sd card. I would suggest installing the app "ES File Explorer" from the play store. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...51bGwsMSwyLDNd

    That way you can see exactly where things are located. Also, another thing to keep in mind is if you use the continuous shooting mode it doesn't store the pictures in the same folder until you select "best shot" and it deletes all the others.

    BTW, I had changed the location to storage card in the camera app. Your last screen shot prompted me to change everything else to storage card as well. I remember thinking before that it must not be possible to change where messages are stored. Thanks.

    I use astro file manager. I'm aware of the burst mode and how it's stored! Thanks for the info though. Opened the camera app and it's set to storage card. This has got me confused as a mofo'

    So I hooked up to the laptop last night and clicked on "media sync". As stated, I was able to access both, the phone storage and the card storage. Sure enough, the pictures that I was unable to see when mounted as "disk drive" were available in media sync. So now my question is how do I put them onto the card??? Also when I put music on the card it want available but if I put it on the phone it works in "play music". This also has me scratching my head!! Thanks for the info.
