This guide will help you migrate your hidden pictures/videos from your old phone to a new phone.

Samsung Galaxy S / Nexus S / Samsung Galaxy II etc. These phones have both a fixed Internal SD card and a removable External SD card. The confusion arises from the fact the Android OS just gives developers direct API to get location of only 1 SD card and which almost always is the Internal SD card.

- To migrate pics to a new phone you need to copy this folder to the new phone’s Internal SD card (if your phone has one , else External SD card)
