natalyn Level 1 Level 1
My iPod touch won't save photos any more! It worked for a while after the 3.0 update but now whenever I save a photo it seems like it works then when I go to look at the photo, it's not there! I use the app photoshare and other people on there say they have the same problem since they've updated to 3.0! Help!

ipod touch 2G, iPhone OS 3.0, won't save photos

    That's the exact same problem I have. I've been told restoring it works for a while, but then it just goes back to not saving and the more you restore the less it works

    Theres an app called roll swap that lets you save photos again! Just download the app, use it to swap your photo roll, then restart your ipod.

    Same here....what's up?

    Ok, had to chime in with the problem/solution...apparently there is a counter problem in either the 3.0 update or the firmware in general...once your 'Saved Photos' hits 0999.png your images are saved although will be invisible to your ipod...ugh

    The solution (until there is a firmware update) is to reset the counter...go grab iphonebrowser 1.91 - http://code.google.com/p/iphonebrowser/downloads/list

    Install and run iphonebrowser (with your ipod connected)...under DCIM/.MISC (in the left pane) delete 'info.plist' in the right pane...disconnect and restart your ipod...this should have reset your ipod (image counter) and the next image saved will be 'IMG_0001.png'

    WARNING: I had to delete/transfer any images already in 'Saved Folders' prior to applying the fix to get it to work although haven't looked back since!

    See you at 0999.png

    I'm having this same problem and it's driving me crazy...

    ah thanks so much tcwiv, it actually worked
    although i save a lot of photos so ive had to reset the counter twice hah
    but at least i can save them at all
    i hope apple fixes this soon, or in the next update, its really quite annoying
    i wonder if this happens with the new ipod touches that already have 3.0, but i guess not cuz they didnt need an actual update install.
    well thanks again it helped a lot:)

    Me neither!!! I'm really sad.. I came here looking for an answer to this. Someone said to get that roll swap. I'm going to try that.
