Downside of Nokia Photo Browser

The freeware doesn’t scan all images stored in the phone memory and memory card. Indeed, Nokia Photo Browser v0.095 only scans the C:\Images (phone memory) and E:\Images (memory card).

To fix it, you have to keep or save all images in either one of the Images folder!
