06-22-2009, 03:33 PM #1Symbolic link Cycorder Videos to Cameras picture folder doesnt work?
Hey... quick Question.
The camera dir is "/private/var/mobile/Media/DCIM/100APPLE", and Cycorder recordings are in "/private/var/mobile/Media/Videos".
I just wanted to make a simple symbolic link to the Videos dir inside of the 100APPLE dir (which i did), but when Windows browses the pictures (when connected via USB and recognizes it as a browsable device with images) it does not find the symbolic link for the Videos folder.
However, if i make a real folder in that dir, windows picks it up just fine.

Delete "Videos" folder
Right click: New Link
Point link (Path):
This way videos recorded with Cycorder are going to be saved in DCIM/100APPLE folder with all your pictures.
Connect your iPhone to your computer (usb cable) and you can do whatever you want.
Note if you want to view and open your Cycorder videos in your camera roll, you have to rename the files manually:
BTW I use WinSCP.

Thanks so much for this very simple solution... I checked out other sides that directly dealt with mobile terminal and it was very confusing!
Also is it possible to have multiple links?
I used your instructions on how to create a Symbolic link between Cycorder Videos and Cameras picture folder and modified it to link my Cycorder to my Air Share app and works great!
I was wondering, is it possible to have more than one symbolic link? If I could I'd have one link send my Cycorder videos to my Air Share so I can view my files over a network and Also have those videos linked to my camera roll like you explained earlier so I can download them like I do with my pictures.

Yes, you can do a symlink to donwload your photos and videos in your DCIM folder using AirSharing.
1. Open WinSCP
2. Go to:
3. Right Click: New - Link
Link (Name): DCIM
Point link (Path): /private/var/mobile/Media/DCIM/100APPLE
Note: I am using AirSharing 1.1.4. I think the new AirSharing version 2.1.3 does not accept symlinks.
