    Default DCIM vs. Photo folders

    Dcim folder is for camera roll only.You can see only them in apple iphone folder when you connect to your computer.Normally,other photos are saved to photo folder which are transfered from your computer.

    DCIM is the only folder ur computer can view (officially) from USB. It is where you camera roll is stored.

    DCIM (see [ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Design_rule_for_Camera_File_system[/ame]) is the de facto industry standard for digital still cameras and hence recognised by most computers/ imaging programs as the palce where pictures taken on a device will be stored.

    The Photo Folder is just a folder where other photos are stored.

    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
