    Hi all..recently my desire has been having problems with the camera..Initally i am using Defrost 6.1a with no problems..Pictures and videos taken with it are working fine until 2 days ago.. when i take pictures and capture a video..i am able to view it inside the phone..but once i mount it via usb to pc...the pictures and videos are gone!i tried looking at all the folders inside DCIM but could not find it...once unmounted...the pictures and videos are also not found in the phone gallery any more... I tried to reformat sd card(had a ext3 partition) and also upgraded to GV1.9 but the problem still persisted.Before defrost,i had used other roms as well.. Advice is greatly appreciated..thanks!

    That leads me to think the problem is with the camera app specifically rather than the phone in general or the sd card.

    Have you tried clearing data via manage applications on the camera?

    If you have been moving between roms without data wipe or doing titanium restores, it could be that there are settings conflicting with your camera.

    Might be worth taking a nandroid backup then doing a full data wipe without restore to test. That way if it works, you know its software / data settings

    Sometimes, things that conflict are not obvious. For example, restoring wallpapers from a sense rom will cause sound settings to force close on an AOSP rom.

    All I can suggest is wipe to observe if the problem persists.
