    I downloaded a short video clip from the internet. I assumed it would be stored in the "photos" file so I could easily delete it. But now I can not find it. I want to get it out of the phone.

    Can someone kindly tell me how I can find it and delete it? Thanks very much.

    I have Nexus One with 2.2.

    Look for a folder called "downloads" on your SD card. It should be there if it was a video file downloaded via the browser.

    Don't want the wife to see the porn? =P

    Yup, do not want my gf to see it. But I can not figure out how to find the "folders" in the SD card. Where do I go to view these folders? Can someone help me? Thanks

    Another option to delete if you downloaded the video from the browser: have your browser open, select menu ->more->download and press and hold on the dl video and you'll be ask if you want to delete it.

    Your options:

    1. Mount your phone (USB) to your computer, then access the files.
    2. Install a file manager from the Market then you can use it to browse your files.
    3. See if it shows up in your Gallery. If it does, you can delete it from there.
