The file path is /mnt/sdcard/DCIM/100MEDIA.

I cannot see this folder when I look a the files on the computer ("removable disk"). What am I doing wrong?
The file path that you have specified is for the internal storage of the phone.
I know it is confusing

Internal Storage/Phone Storage is the default location for photos and videos. Within the camera application there is a setting to change the storage location from the internal storage to the user added/removable MicroSD card.
And now in JellyBean, under Settings -> Storage -> Storage Settings you can toggle which storage location you would like to utilize as well.

The file path for the MicroSD card is /mnt/sdcard/ext_sd/DCIM/

In the current file structure the internal storage is designated as /sdcard/
And the added or removable MicroSD card is designated as /extsd/ or /sdcard2/
