Re: Can't delete photos :(

Providing the Device details will surely be of more help.. BTW reboot the phone and try to delete them.. Else, connect the phone to PC and thru' Windows Explorer browse for these photos and Delete.. See if this solves the issue...

Re: Can't delete photos :(

you can also browsing through your file manager on your phone under applications>office>filemanger>massmemory>images>camera>folder

see if you can delete if from there..

 

when using USB> if you can't browse through OVI Suite then set your USB connection on your phone to mass storage and try if you can do it from there..

Re: Can't delete photos :(

If you remove the sd card do the pictures dissappear ? have you tried using mass memory E as default saving for photo's and will they delete from there ? Have you tried formatting the sd card ?

If I have helped at all, a click on the White Star is always appreciated :

It's broken thumbnails, not photos. Photos are probably already deleted but for some odd reason thumbnails didn't refresh properly..

Re: Can't delete photos :(

I don't really want to format mass memory. As do I done this before and lost all my pre-installed stuff and I had to get a brand new one :smileysad:

Dose restoring the factory settings format the phone?

Ps here are some images of my phone memory

Re: Can't delete photos :(

I fixed it :smileyvery-happy: After doing hours and hours of googleing I found a fix

All I had to do was this:
If you know the location of the broken thumbnails, simply create dummy file with the same name and extension and replace the file to the location and then you can delete it from your phone or PC.

Re: Can't delete photos :(

I have the same problem, but how did you figure out the path to the picture thumbnail?  I have like 25 so called thumbnails that won't delete off the phone or throuigh the PC and the nanmes are like 384739204948 with no extension plus I can't get any path info from them as they just say system error when I try?
