What is the extension of the file? You can use data recovery software like undelete to recover your files.

Huawei u8652 can you move photos from phone to sd


If your SD card is recognized, then go into Files Application (Or any other file manager you might have. I would recommend ES File manager). Navigate to the folder, usually Storage-> DCIM -> Camera. Long press any photo and on pop-up select move(Cut). In some advanced file manager, you can multi-select or even move/copy a folder. Now navigate to SD card (Ext Storage), DCIM -> Camera and paste it.

Photo and camera


When this app are not found, it usually because the folder where the camera is saved is not in the phone memory but instead in the internal SD memory.
You need a file manager, open the file manager and you should have 2 options, a. device b. sd card
Go to sd card and search for a folder named DCIM, if it's here thenit should be OK. If it's not, then tap device or just go back until you reach device, storage, sdcard1 or external storage, again, it all depends in the firmware and file manager that you download. If you see the folder DCIM in the external SD card or SD card1, then just move it back to internal sd or SD card0. Reboot and it should be good to go. If by any chance there is no DCIM folder, then just go to the PlayStore and download any camera that is free, this will create the folder.

Pics gone in DCIM folder. Using a Nikon s3000 coolpix camera, connected to computer, F:\s3000 is detected, within it is DCIM folder present, and within DCIM folder presents Nikon100 and Nikon101 folders,...


You cannot create new folders on an SD card and copy images to them, as the camera will not recognise them, since they were not create in the camera. Copy the entire contents of the card to a folder on your HDD, then format the card in the camera.

If all your images are backed up on your computer, just format the media card IN THE CAMERA, and that should re-set everything for you when next you take a photo.

I accidentally deleted my DCIM and MISC folder from my memory card ... I can't see the pictures I take .... how can I fix this mess!!!! Please help


Use software like PhotoRescue. Unless the photos were erased and then written over, they're probably still there. I used un-delete recovery software and it found my photos even after I had formatted the card and used it again to take more photos.

I know it's a late reply but other people may want to know you can find and recover deleted photos.

Unable to view the pictures folder


Hi, I got the solution for myself. Initially I have enabled to view the hidden folder option and even then I was not able to see the folder, then later I have disabled the options Hide Extensions for Known file types and Hide Protected Operating system files. Then I could see the folder and able to retrieve the photos. Once I have taken my photos I have formatted my MMC card and it is working normally.

Sony cyber-shot dsc-h2


hi,

Its simple..
After connecting USB to the laptop, a window will appear.
In that window, "select files to open".
It will open the DCIM.click and open the DCIM folder you wil find 101MSDCF folder.(for e.g.F:\DCIM\101MSDCF)
Select and delete all photos.

I did the same and i was able to get back memory.
I dont know whether its standard way of deleting photos from memory stick. Any support guys from sony camera can comment on it....

thanks

Memory card problems


what i did :
Tools>Folder Options...>View
i checked all options with title "display this and that kind of folders and files" and unchecked all "hide file" titles , and my real dcim folder appeared as transparent folder icon 100% usable.
if you already erased dcim.exe, try it anyway your folder should be there.

After copying your files from it format your memory card.
