    Hi, wondering if anyone can help - my long list of problems with with my Galaxy S is wearing me down. :(

    Have had one handset replaced by Vodafone after 3 months of problems and within 2 weeks the new one did what I'm told was a "partial brick" which the guys instore couldn't fix. They apparently rebuilt it and I got it back end of last week.

    I had (thankfully!) backed up all my data, apps & photos shortly before it crashed using MyBackup Pro and restored all successfully. But...trying to get my 300 or so photos off my phone onto PC (running Windows Vista) and I can't seem to find them. I can see them all on the phone fine but if I connect via USB mass storage and then look for them the Photos and Images folders are empty and a search of every other folder doesn't find them either. I have also tried taking the micro SD card out and plugging it in directly but same problem. :thinking:

    Can anyone suggest where they may be and how I get them off? I've tried contacting Rerware direct but keep getting a delivery failure message. Have also tried finding them via the useless Kies but it's just doing it's usual crashing!!! My phone is running Gingerbread.

    Many thanks for any help!

    In windows explorer settings, set it to show hidden and system files
    Or try another PC OS

    thrs something called bluetooth visibility setting..if u connect your phone to PC via bluetooth,u cant see the pics etc unless bluetooth visibility is switched on! this is a file-specific setting apparently..in froyo atleast!

    look around..maybe thrs a similar setting for USB connection too..

    am a noob too..but jst thought this might help.

    Thanks - have tried changing settings for bluetooth visibility now too but still can't get it working. Have now found where on my phone they are stored and as expected they're in a DCIM folder in mnt/sdcard but although other folders here show up when I connect usb to pc this one doesn't. Driving me mad!
