BBM group pics not saving on BB?
I'm in a BBM group and we've posted some funny pics in the group that I'd like to save. So I go to the pic I want, choose to save it to my memory card (noting the file location) and when I go to that file location the folder for the group isn't where it should be so I can't find the saved pics. Is anyone else running into this?

one way around it is you can turn the group pictures auto save on. go into the group details and have it save all group pics. this is by default when you enter a group, but most people i know shut it off. it will however save all pics posted. but you can then go into your media, view all pics, then delete the ones you dont want.

I am new to crackberry.com and have searched for an issue to the problem mentioned above. I have autosave to media card switched on in my bbm group convos and up until a few weeks ago all the photos used to always save to my media card. But they stoppe for some reason. I have checked all settings and for some reason I can no longer save photos received in BBM 5.0. I used to also be able to, when looking at a photo sent by a member of a group, to send it to facebook, another BBM contact, or email it directly. I can no longer do either of the above. I even tried to manually save picture and it only gives me option to save to media card and it still doesnt do it when I press yes. Media card has plenty of space and photos taken from my phone do save on the media card.
Please let me know if anyone has had this issue and/or resolved it!
Many thanks in advance,

i have problem like u, but now has solve.
maybe ur groups name contain (/), etc.. so, when u save picture, the system cannot create folder. because slash(/) symbol is like partition data/folder with data/folder in computer sytem root.
so, u must create new group without that symbol..
sorry for my english

I have the same problem as well. As soon as I change my group picture save option to "Device" the pictures are stored without any issues. However as soon as I have the settings changed to picture save to "Media Card" the pictures do not save at all. It does not even create a "Blackbery Messenger" folder under my Media folder.

I have a similar problem. Since last month I cant find (on my computer) my BBM group pictures that other group members send me. I can see them on my device but they are nowhere to found on my media card when hooked up to my computer. The group folder is there and on my phone my options are set to autosave on media card.I used to be indecisive, now I'm not so sure.
