Sorry, I should have specified. These are photos in the camera roll, not those that you synch with iTunes.
I have copied them all over to my computer so no fear in losing anything, but my larger concern are the stuck empty folders on the iPhone. Those cant be deleted. Id like to be rid of them before the new iphone comes so I can synch and not have those phantom folders come over to the new phone.
I want the new iPhone to be a nice and clean install, but do want my game save information on there (I finished Angry Birds, waiting for the update now, dont want to lose that!!!)
Thanks for the prior information though and your response!
I didn't think you could get folders in the Camera Roll?
I understand where you're coming from though. Have you tried 'cutting and pasting' the folders, rather than deleting them? If you cut them to your desktop first, would that get rid of them from the iPhone, and then you could delete them from your desktop?
Just a thought (:
Thanks guys! Yeah, apparently I have folders under the DCIM folder that are listed as 100apple through 116apple. Some contain photos that I can copy and paste out, but when I want to get rid of the actual folder named 1xxAPPLE, it says it cant be deleted and just stays on the iPhone even if its empty.
Tried looking around the forums and others have this issue, but nothing really easy to get rid of it, at least without losing my game saves.
The preverbial rock and a hard place.
I always thought these were default folders? They appear no matter what?
I no longer use my iPhone with a Windows computer, and don't have to go through this process any longer. My iPhoto application on my Mac takes care of this for me, so I never have to look through folders to find my photos from my iPhone.
All I can recommend is that you try a re-sync once you have deleted ALL photos from your iPhone?
