    Main memory? Home Screen.....

    I downloaded a punisher home screen from the "home screen" thread yesterday. It said that it saved it to my "main memory" and I can't find it in my phone to save my life. Would someone please help?

    Thanks.......Mike

    you can always attempt a "menu>find" in the file manager, starting with the root dir. searching for the file name

    Cancel out of find. If your in the My docs folder, hit the back button, may take you to the root folder, the homescreen file could be there. thats if you don't see it in your My Documents folder, assuming.

    just do it again and see if it says 'overwrite existing file' if it does remember where it says its saving to (typically /my documents) and if it doesnt say that then you never actually downloaded it before

    I downloaded it again and it did ask if I wanted to "overwrite" it. It said it was saving it to "main memory"....that's all it said.
