    Why are my pics going into two different folders, both called "Camera"? It is almost random where they go into a one for a while, then go into the other for a while and flip back and forth. How can I get the phone to just put them into one folder all of the time?

    Same camera app or different camera apps? If you have a /DCIM/Camera folder in internal storage (the default) and another /DCIM/Camera folder on the SD card (which many people do), their full names are different, so they'll show as 2 albums, both named Camera. (The full names have to be different - you can't have 2 folders of the same name in the same place.)

    Agree--use a file manager app like ES File Explorer to find out where those two Camera directories are located.

    Both are names exactly the same "Camera". You may have hit on something because one is internal the other on the SD Card, but what determines which they are saved to? It is completely random and changes back and forth between the two...

    It certainly shouldn't switch like that. One possibiity is that the SD card is set as default, but it might be unmounting and re-mounting on its own, perhaps due to a loose connection. When it unmounts, any photo taken would go to Internal Storage. But once the card is remounted, subsequent photos would go to the SD card.

    The next time you notice a photo has saved to Internal Storage, immediately go to Settings>Storage, and see if the SD card is still registering.
