    The other day my phone stopped saving pictures. There is a gray box in place of the picture. I have tried downloading 3rd party camera apps but they did not resolve the issue. I hate to do it, but would a factory reset resolve the issue or is there a simple solution? The phone is stock.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    How many pictures do you already have?

    281 pictures. I should mention that it is still taking video. The problem is only with the pictures.

    Are you saving them to the SD card or internal memory? You might be out of room.

    Motorola firmware doesn't really support saving photos to the phone's internal memory. He also stated that it still records video, so free space isn't an issue.

    Try moving the photos to your PC and see if the problem persists.

    Of course it does, on your camera app under settings you can choose the storage location. Either SD card or "internal storage" which is the media partition of your memory.

    Mind telling me where exactly in this screenshot is that option?


    And I'm also interested in where is that /media partition.

    Maybe on the D2G it can't but just checked on my bionic and it is possible.

    rck76, I know that it's possible on DROID3, X2, Bionic, and RAZR.

    However, I'm unsure whether JohnnytheK noticed that this subforum is about the DROID2 GLOBAL, which doesn't have (and never had) a /media partition. My response was to point out his mistake as I use a DROID2 GLOBAL myself, and would certainly know if it had such an option.

    On the D2G, and it has been discussed multiple times, internal memory can only be used for apps (and their normal data) as all excess space is mounted under /data.

    Should I in the future additionally explicitly specify “this is only related to X, while not related to Y” in every single post when posting in a device subforum? I was perfectly sure that if I'm posting in the D2G subforum, it's by default about the D2G, not DROID X2 or Bionic?

    Yep, sorry just noticed "D2" my bad. In the future I'll verify what forum I'm in before I give any advice.

    I agree with you 100% and come to think about it, I don't think it could be done on the D1 either.

    It seems that things are just being buggy. It started working again although I did nothing.

    It would be much better for you to reset the all settings of your phone.
