    Hello,

    My gf desire says it's running out of space, i checked and her photos she takes with her camera are saving to internal memory instead of SD card. I can't find an option to change this, can anyone help?

    Thanks.

    All pics and vids do get saved to the SD card by default. If you go to Files/Phone files/dcim/Camera and long press on any file, and then choose "info", you will see the folder is listed as /mnt/sdcard/dcim/Camera. _______________

    They are not being saved to her memory card at all. I have looked all over her phone for some settings to change - camera/images etc and none to be found.

    I have an HTC Desire HD and i thought i'd check mine now and i too am unable to find an option to change where to save pictures taken with the camera. Very strange.

    Does the phone *see* the card, and can you browse to it ?

    My thoughts exactly, it sounds like the phone isn't seeing the SD card so is saving to main memory.
