    Weirdness with DCIM folder

    I've been using QuickPic as my gallery for a couple of years on my DX. But on the SIII, for some reason the app doesn't recognize the DCIM folder on my external SD card. Since that folder houses a Camera subfolder where all the pics I take with the SIII go, I'd like to access it from the same app I use for all my other photos. I've tried using the settings to tell the app to include that folder, but it just plain doesn't show up on the list of folders to add.

    I also notice that the same folder doesn't show up in Root Explorer or ES File Explorer ... but it DOES show up in the native My Files app. I can't seem to figure out a way to fix that. Any suggestions?

    Don't see how that would be possible if it is really there. Permissions?

    DD, that image helped. I was looking in the wrong place in both Root Explorer and QuickPic. I was looking here

    I've now told QuickPic to scan the Camera subfolder and all's well. Thanks much!
