Where'd my video go?!General

    Last night I took a video of my cat chasing his tail. Then I watched the video. I set my phone aside, picked it up later, watched the video again, then cleared the camcorder app and went back to my home screen. Later, I plugged in my phone to dump the video onto my laptop...and the video was nowhere to be found. :eek:

    With my laptop I searched every possible place on the SD card, but came up empty.

    So I fired up the camcorder again and took a couple of brief videos, watched them, basically just repeated my earlier steps, plugged it back in, and the two NEWER videos were right where they should be, in the dcim/Camera directory.

    PLEASE do not tell me I must have deleted the video. NO, I didn't. :mad:

    This morning, I repeated the whole process--and guess what? Got the same results. Recorded a video, watched it, plugged in the phone, video was nowhere to be found. Recorded another video, plugged in the phone, the LATEST video was in the dcim/Camera directory.

    What the hell is going on? :confused:

    Also, when I select 'settings' on the camcorder, it says "Cannot modify settings while in service mode." Huh? How do I get out of "service mode" so I can change its settings?

    I was having issues too until I downloaded "QuikPix" and use it as my default picture/video device. No problems since.

    To (sort of) answer your question: since the update to ICS, many things are buggy/quirky/terrible/just plain don't work. Since Moto abandoned the Atrix 2, any fixes for the myriad of issues is unlikely.

    I THINK the mystery is solved. I was using the Camcorder Shortcut app to access the phone's camcorder. When I instead used the phone's own method of accessing the camcorder, the 'disappearing videos' problem went away. For now, at least. :)
