    Hey all. I'm having a problem finding picutres or wallpapers saved to my sd card on my eris. I have Astro File and I just bought a wallpaper from Verizon and it says it's saved to my sd card yet I can't find it anywhere. I checked my photos, and all the folders in astro. Any clue on what I'm doing wrong or where else it could be?

    Thanks!

    Look in the file: DCIM
    Your photos should be there. My wallpapers are in various folders depending on the origin.

    Mount your phone to your computer.....Open Windows Explorer to your SD card and search for the name of the file. It should show up and tell you what folder it is in.

    My phone has both a 'download' and a 'downloads' folder. If you've got one or both of those give them a check. Also, sometimes things end up on the root level of the SD card, might check there also - if you haven't already.

    Also Astro has a search function. Assuming the file is a JPEG image, I'd start by searching for "*.jpg". You might also have to try searching for "*.jpeg" since some JPEG are stored with that extension. Another good one to try would be "*.png"

    Are you taking the pictures?

    Are you using an app to Download backgrounds?

    I bought them from Verizon. It sends you a text message and when I save it, it says attachment copied to sd card.

    Using Astro, Select "Home" at the top (assuming "Home" is the root of your card), there may be a directory titled "Downloads". Perhaps look there?

    The person that suggested mounting the phone to a PC sounds like he/she has a pretty good idea. If your PC is windows, you can do a search on the drive based upon file date criteria. Maybe?? :confused:

    I tried that, still nothing. I looked through all the files though. I'm not sure what the files is named b/c it's the wallpaper's from Verizon.
