    I have had my pictures database get corrupted and had to turn off, remove SD card, turn on, turn off, install SD card, turn on for new camera pics to be found again. Not an SD card issue, a BlackBerry 10 issue.

    So I downloaded photos from my camera into a directory called photos and they do not preview in file manager and never have. Pictures app doesn't find them either.

    It I move them into camera directory then I can see them in pictures app and preview them in file manager.

    Ps H A T E the pictures app.

    Love my phone but this basic stuff gets frustrating. Hoping it is fixed in 10.3.

    That said, is there a way for the pictures app to find the photos in the photo directory, or for file manager to show previews? Is it me? If it doesn't work for me, then how can it work for you?

    I've never had these issues and I have combined pictures from multiple previous BlackBerry devices stored on the same Micro SD card. I suspect that your previous camera picture format may be the issue or you need to simply backup all pictures onto a different drive, use the BlackBerry device to completely format and erase the memory card and then re-load all the pictures back into the native "camera" directory that BlackBerry creates. I even have subfolders in there by month and do not have issues. In short, re-format card, then re-load the pictures.

    I'm writing a photographic application that can store pictures in its own directory. The camera application and photo viewer finds them just fine.

    SD card was formatted in the phone, 32mb size. So this is unusual... I will fiddle around some more to see them, but it should just work imho.
