    I have a bunch of photo albums on my samsung galaxy s5. Most have a sd card icon, but some dont. When I connect phone to pc, the albums without icon dont show up, so I can't back them up. Is there any way to move these photos to sd card so they can be backed up to my pc? TIA for any help.

    Well I go into my files, then images. In there I click the 3 dots and select all then when I click the 3 dots again I have the option of move or copy and select one then it comes up I can move to device storage or SD card and move them to a folder on the SD card and do it manually that way without using a computer. Then I can put the memory card in the computer and do as I want with the photos. Mary

    The images w/o the SD icon are contained in the phone's internal storage under DCIM or DCIM/camera

    the name "camera" is the stock Samsung camera.... other camera apps use their own folder names,

    ie, FV-5 Camera puts their images in DCIM/FV-5

    i know the stock Samsung camera app will store to the sd if there is one, but google camera will store to internal memory by default.
