    I was in my storage sub menu the other day, and I noticed that on my phone storage it says that I am using 187 mb for photos and videos.. I have searched high and low through my files, trying to find where they are hiding, but have been unsuccessful.. I use picspeed for my wallpapers, but I always go and move them to my external SD card.. I don't have any videos on here, and all of my camera photos are saved to the external SD automatically.. What am I overlooking?

    DCIM folder?

    You didn't tell us where you DID look, so I have no idea where you might not have looked. Images can get stored in multiple locations, depending on how you put them on your phone (e.g., camera pics, downloads, attachments...

    Yep and just to piggy back a little on his answer... the phone comes with stuff stored already in it. Maybe the pics are pre loaded wallpapers? Not sure about the videos though. Maybe a media folder.

    And here I was , thinking I was being thorough HA! I looked through every folder in the internal memory DCIM, Pictures, Picspeed, download, media, even Tumblr, and there isn't any files for photos in any of them.. I do see a "burstlyimagecache" and "burstlyvideocache" that have files, but it says that it can't find the application to open the file.

    Did you check screenshots. They are saved to the internal sd. Also check tapatalk downloads.

    Screenshots shows no folders, as well.. It's not that I need the memory I still have over 10 gigs left, it's more the principal of the thing.. If it shows storage being used for images, I should be able to find them I can tell when I transfer my wallpapers to my external card, as the storage space on the card is reduced, so I know they are going to the card..

    Maybe it's cache from pics and videos taken and it doesn't actually show in a folder? I'm no expert so this is just a wild guess. Maybe go to application manager and see if gallery or media has a clear cache option and see if the amount of storage for pics and videos goes down?

    If I understand the OP correctly, then these files are thumbnails for the Gallery. You can Select "Show Hidden Files" in the MyFiles options and they should show up for management. I wouldn't delete them though as it may mess up the Gallery (I'm not sure if you can move them either).
