Re: open jpg files on blackberry curve

Hi there!


The "file system full" message is the root of your issue. The reason you can't find it on your BB is because it failed to be saved there. You need to see what you can remove to make space for this new image as you've filled it up. Check your device memory stats (Options > Memory) and see what you have. If you have a Media Card, start saving things there instead of Device Memory. If you already have one and it is full, then, well, you've quite simply filled up your device...there's not much to be done except to start deleting things to make room for new things.


Good luck and let us know!
