still can't retrieve a hidden photo
I have tried the the below mentioned procedures for viewing/retrieving hidden pics. The problem i have now is that my bb comes up with a message saying unable to display.
the file is named BBThumbs.dat
the date and time stamp is correct for the time the pic was taken but i sill can't see it.
Does anybody out there know how I go about fixing this?

BBThumbs.dat, is a system file not a picture. It simply tells the OS to display the pictures located in that folder to show in thumbnail view. Thats why you cannot view it. Google the filename and you will see. And as a matter of fact, that date and timestamp is the last time that file was modified (i.e. took a picture).

Themes affecting navigation in folders
Should be noted that some themes for BB will affect menu options. I just tried navigating to find hidden pictures on an MMMOOO theme, could not see the "Explore" option. Then I thought to switch to the BB default theme and saw that option show up. Just an FYI.
