    I have this extra 8MB memory card for the video camera that we never used since we got a much larger one.
    Went to use it for the little camera (the one we won) for the trip to DL (we leave tomorrow), and I found a bunch of old pictures...
    This is what I don't get. They are 2 years old (my couzins wedding 2 summers ago) my dad took a bunch of pictures of her wedding, and when we got home they got deleted, he said (my dad said) because he couldn't find them.
    So I went to test the MC tonight, and I found another folder, the 2nd folder had 20+ pics of the wedding...the ones he never could find.

    Why wouldn't we beable to find it before? Very weird...

    it's weird how things work, this is just one of the many things I wish I could have told my dad before he passed. He was really sad when he couldn't find the pictures.

    with mine, every time you pull the card out, a new folder is created and the pics taken from then on are put in the new folder. it also does it when the batterys go dead or you take them out for more than just a second.

    Ah I don';t know what happened, I never deleted the wedding pics (I think) and so I only took 2 pictures of what I wanted to of disney land.
    Anyways, I am probably just going to use the palmcorder, its picture quality is better.

    Thanks
