    When using any photography app on my Wildfire S the apps always say "unable to read external storage" or "unable to save to external storage" despite having a 4gb micro SD card in the phone.
    I have had no issues saving anything else to the card including taking normal photos with the standard camera, it only happens with apps that use the camera, can anyone help?

    Thanks :)

    Very weird!

    Which camera apps have you tried? Sounds like a silly question, but have you tried rebooting?

    Might also be worth clearing the cache and data associated with the camera.

    Might sound odd, but try pulling the battery, hold the power button down for thirty seconds, then put the battery back in, power up, and try again.
