I have a blackberry Pearl. I was on a camping trip recently and my camera told me that it could not save. So I figured out how to get it to save to the SD card and was able to take more pictures. On the way home I was using the "move" command to store all my camping pictures on the card in a new folder. I moved several pictures into a folders called "Capers". Upon moving the 5th such picture it was taking a long time so I set the phone down for a while and when I picked the phone back up there was some error? And the thing wanted to reboot. When It did I had no pictures on my SD card. When I hooked it up to a PC the pictures folder was empty.
I ran some partition recovery software on the SD card and was able to retrieve 4 photos and two partials. There was no "capers" folder at all. I want to know what the ___ happened to my pictures and why!!
It is possible that they are somehow lost on the internal memory (along with the missing "capers" folder). If I could access that memory perhaps my picture recovery software could find them. But, how does one do that?

The Capers Folder was one I created, It was the where we had been camping. I created it to organize my photos. I thought that I created it on the SD card, but was surprised that the recovery software didn't find it. So it as at least possible that I was on the internal memory.
I have had this phone for about 6 weeks and this weekend was the first time I was messing around with it. It is a Pearl 8130.
I also don't understand why It would transfer 4 photos fine but since it was the 5th one that it messed up on, what became of the first 4? Shouldn't there be somewhere intact?

I was in the picture thumbnail screen, presses the menu button>>New folder I named it "Capers". It then, before the incident, showed up under the "camera"
Yes I have done all the exploring in both the device and the media card.
I wish the Desktop Manager would be more helpful. I shows me the same things that I can see with the phone. I can access the Device memory, so it seems at least possible some recovery software could also.
