    no one said edit the xml file in this thread
    and for the love of god chill the attitude!

    this is what he says

    see the bold there...
    when you do that the Q automatically creates a '\storage card\dcim' folder...because as you so eloquently said you need them in the root directory for them to show up...THUS the reason why they DO NOT show up as they are defaulted to a folder created by the Q when selecting that option
  2. see above :angry:

    lol
    no that not what you do...no one ever said thats what you do

    if you change it to storage card it saves in '\storage card\dcim'
    and you just hit the right soft key while in the thumbnail view hit options then camera and change it to save in the storage card

    Now I'm confused!

    @hello: Scott said you don't need to change the xml or registry to get pictures saved on the storage card.

    From what I'm reading, that is what you want to do, correct?

    If it is, just follow the steps he posted above.

    it is what he wants to do but he wants it in '\storage card\my pictures' not '\storage card\dcim'

    this is what i gathered

    Firstly, sorry for my english, it's not my first language and i'm not in USA. :gasp:

    So i wanna change my default "My Pictures" directory to "\Storage Card\My Pictures" not for only camera. I wanna change it for everything. For any program, which use \My Pictures\ to save some files.

    Like Rescro Screen Capture or gpsVP (keeps gps setting on my pictures directory)
    SKTOOLS keeps backups and logs files.

    I save my pictures in DCIM folder, but when i press "thumbnails" i see \My Pictures - it's bad :angry: how to fix it?

    well for other apps i cant tell you...
    you might have to head to the registry or accept its not possible
    most programs dont allow you to customize the 'folder' you save things to...device vs. storage card yes but folder not so much...some do but most dont

    and your second point about thumbnail view is what the end of this thread is about
    and if you read it you will see that you might need to change the registry...if that is a viable solution
    now where it is...i have no idea

    i found registry key
    HKCU - Software - Microsoft - Pictures
    and in Pictures - found string key "Local Path" with "\My Documents\My Pictures"
    and i change it to \Storage Card\My Pictures
    after that i makes reboot, so when i come again to this key, i see: "\My Documents\My Pictures"
    crap (

    --
    second:
    i found "StorageCardPath" there, and change it from DCIM to PHOTOS folder, reboot, and my key keeps PHOTOS but whatever all photos saves to DCIM :(
