    Hi:

    Have a couple of questions I was hoping someone could help with.

    How do I tell the z10 to save to media card (currently it's saving to device).

    How do I access picture on the device? I tried to plug to pc (turned on Access to Storage ...USB) but it I can only access what is on the device viz Link. I want to use an instance of Explorer; same as I do when viewing media card (though I plug the media card in via a usb card reader)


    TIA

    Saving to non default locations is coming with OS 10.1, so keep an eye out for that.

    Funny, back on 10.0 whenever I would open a media app for the 1st time, it would notice the SD card and prompt me if I wanted to make saving to the card default.

    Oh, here it is (seems I didn't launch the camera app since the update):

    Media Card / View items on device-img_00000024.jpg

    What I do here: a) make sure I move all screenshots to the SD; b) leave BB Link open. That way, it allows Windows to see both the SD and the device memory as Mapped Drives that I can access at will.

    Provided the PC and Z10 are on the same WiFi network, that is.

    And welcome to the forums.

    diegonei, thanks but my camera has been well used & it hasn't asked me that question.

    But thanks to your post, at 6:10 in the a.m., after some coffee, I had the bright idea to open the camera & see if there were "settings", & of course, there are! The first option "save pictures on media card" OFF. I have turned on! Not sure how it got turned off but hopefully this helps. It's so much easier to get the photo's off using a usb media card adapter, than using link. Do not care much for link... desktop worked better.

    Thanks so much for the help!

    So now the other quesiton: can the things on the device (pictures, music etc.) be accessed as though this were a media card & using an instance of explorer, rather than using LINK? I tried last night but couldn't get it to work

    & I might add, I've tried a few times but it seems like it's just not possible. This is part of the z10 I'm not happy about, in the least. & it's too similar to that apple crap & its itunes where you HAVE to use link/itunes.
