    Hello:

    I have a Sony Xperia. Last night I took a bunch of photos using the built in camera app. I cannot find the photos.
    I tried using the Mediascape app that came with the phone, but to no avail.

    Please help, as these are invaluable memories.

    Thanks.

    If you have an SDCard in your phone, normally photos will save in /sdcard/dcim/camera or somewhere around there.

    First tip. Don't use Mediascape app.

    Connect the phone to the computer and then mount the sdcard from the phone. Then cancel out of any PC Companion on the computer.

    Open My Computer and navigate to SDCard and look in the DCIM folder. Change view style to Details and then organize by Date Modified. Find the most recently modified folder and look for your pics.

    If they aren't in DCIM then what app are you using to take pictures with?

    That's right! I totally forgot about the DCIM folder! :D

    Thanks, Beau! ;)
