    I took a short video with my Incredible. I can see it fine on the phone, but I want to transfer it to my computer at home. I have mounted the phone and SD card on my computer (macbook, if that matters), and can explore the various files, but the video does not show up in any of the "video" folders. On the phone, when I open the video folder, I see my video plus a video podcast, but when the drives are open on the desktop, I can only find the podcast video. Where am I going wrong?

    Thanks for any help!

    I'm having the same problem. When I look in the DCIM folder on my Mac, it's empty but the vid file is definitely on the phone. Somewhere...

    Photos and Videos are stored on the phone at: /emmc/DCIM/100MEDIA

    They can be accessed with Filexplorer or any good file manager. They can also be accessed with the USB cable by looking at the /DCIM/100MEDIA folder on the first mounted drive.

    Hope that helps.
