Sad I can't find phone files on computer

[QUOTE=Shak-Attack;1839489]As almost ANY Digital camera would be...
the DCIM folder contains your photo's taken from your phone..
Media folder would be any photo's you placed yourself...
But Generally DCIM is your Main folder...
This is after you Set your Photo to Mass Storage.

Samsung Galaxy S Exact Instruction to Confirm and explain Below;

Plugging in Samsung Galaxy S:

Step 1. Settings > [Scroll to the Bottom] About Phone > USB Settings > Select "Mass Storage" [This should be the one with Green Dot, if it isnt, Select it] - Once this is done Exit to home screen (Press the back button until back to main screen with background - Not necessary but no point having it on setting screen)

Step 2. Plug in Device to Computer via USB Cable - XP / Vista / 7 works good - Mac Tiger or up Works good too

Step 3. Use the Top Status Bar and pull it down.

Step 4. Select the Status that mentions "USB Connected"

Step 5. A pop up window will show up. Press - MOUNT

Your Device SD is now mounted to PC and is acting as a Mass Storage Removable Disk.

My Computer > Removable Disk X (where X is the next letter available to name a drive)

There you'll find your DCIM folder Plus other folders.
Drag / Copy / Move - Any files you need

I can't find my DCIM folder anywhere. Nothing shows up on my computer when I connect my phone as above. I need detailed instructions if any one can help me. Thanks!
