    Is it a pic you downloaded or took with your camera on the phone?

    Have you tried looking in the gallery?

    Ok are you plugging the phone into your computer and searching that was or searching through my files on the phone?


    When I search through my files all my pics are located in the sd folder. I also have nothing in the media folder.

    Camera photos are stored in the sdcard/DCIM/ folder, like other digital cameras. If you have your camera set to save to the external SD card, look in sdcard/sd/DCIM.

    Replace "sd/" with "external_sd/" if you're on Android 2.2

    See the Captivate FAQ:

    I just wanted to add that when I connected my android to my mac notebook, the "devices" folder showed 2 different devices, including my phone and then the SD card itself. So in order to find my photos, I went to "Devices --> Untitled --> DCIM --> Camera". I believe the Untitled device is my SD card. The other device name is "No Name" and holds everything else that's on my phone.

    Hope this is helpful to someone! :)
