Thread: How many ?

  1. #1
    Default How many ?
    On an iphone 3gs 16g how many pics can I save to the camera roll folder? Last nite, the photos I saved would not show when I opened the folder, but showed a thumbnail photo of the pic in photo albums when opened. Also it shows I have 886 photos in camera roll, but when opened it only shows 868 photos. Tonite I deleted a bunch of photos, and now the photos I save are showing up again. Kinda confusing. I would think I could save as many pics as I have free space.

    Also,why when I access my phone with iphonebrowser, when it show my pics in DCIM, there are several folders, 100APPLE thru 108APPLE, some with only a few pics in each folder. Why not just one folder?

    Can I create another folder and direct the phone to save pics to the new folder?

    Thanks for any help with this.

    That is a lot of pictures on the camera roll. Should back those bad boys up lol cause a restore wipes your camera roll.

    I have 1,086 photos in my albums.

    I've had well over 1000 on mine before. The reason for the multiple folders is that it can only save 999 in each folder. Once you pass that the phone creates a new folder in DCIM.

    I had 935 before I deleted some of them. Yes, they get backed up pretty often.
