Camera question for 8330!

Hello - I have looked everywhere for this answer and have come up with nothing.

I took a photo on my camera and then went to properties and selected the option to "hide" the photo.  Now, of course, it's hidden, but I can't view it anywhere????  Any ideas on how to UN hide it?

thanks so much!

Re: Camera question for 8330!

Yes, go to the folder in which the picture was located and press the Menu key > Show Hidden.


For example, return to the camera and look at the options to determine where the pictures are automatically saved.


Now, close the camera and go to the Media icon. Press Menu > Explore, and drill down to find that folder. Press Menu > Show hidden.

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!


Yup! Go here:


  • Homescreen > Media > BBKey > Explore > (navigate to the folder containing the file) > BBKey > Show Hidden > (highlight but don't select the file) > BBKey > Properties > uncheck the "Hidden" tic box
