Camera Storage Option Randomly Resetting

I've had a Curve for about 2 months, and over the past few weeks, it's begun resetting to storing pictures "In Device Memory."  I've, a few times, changed it back to "On Media Card," but it will change back some time later.  I don't use the camera a great deal so I can't tell you how often it's happening.  It's enough for me to post a question about, though.  It's frustrating, b/c if I'm in a situation where I'm trying to snap a picture with the Curve, I'm trying to do it quickly; if I had the seconds it takes to wait on the error and then change it's save location, I could just fish out my camera from my bag.


Has anyone else had any issues like this?

Re: Camera Storage Option Randomly Resetting

Hi Bitzer and welcome to the forums.

Since you have a media card you can restrict the allocation for pictures on your device to O

Go to Media - options - pictures  find Reserved pictures memory, set to O and save. This will also give you more device memory!
