Can't see new pictures on SD card in file explorers
Going to try posting this one more time in hopes that someone has an answer. I have a Galaxy S4 running version 4.2.2. On the phone itself, I can see, in the gallery, all of the pictures I've taken. I can see pictures transferred from my previous phone (a Razr) and the new Galaxy S4. I am using the native camera on the phone.
If I check the phone to see if the pictures are on the phone or in the cloud, they show as being on the device.
If I check the image properties of a picture, the phone reports the picture file location as "storage/extSdCard/DCIM/Camera/xxx" (with xxx being the file name).
On the phone, I can see the picture, share the picture, edit the picture, etc. Looking in the Gallery or Picasa settings, I can see that the picture is physically ON THE PHONE and supposedly in the folder mentioned above.
BUT, when I navigate to the "storage/extSdCard/DCIM/Camera" folder using ES Filer Explorer on the Phone, or with my PC via a USB connection, I can't locate any pictures except the old pictures that were transferred from the old Razr.
None of the pictures actually taken with the native camera on the Galaxy S4 show up in the folder, despite the fact that the phone reports that to be their physical location (when you check the image properties on the phone).
Any idea where they are or how to get them? I'm baffled.
I'd like to be able to copy these pictures to a hard drive for storage, but I can't find them.
