I have a note 20 ultra. When I take a photo it does not appear in my gallery or any gallery. I checked online accounts with samsung, onedrive, google drive, no where.  This has been going on for awhile now about 2 months. Has this happened to anybody else or am I on an Island by myself? Or maybe somebody has a clue as to what to do?? (Hope so).

Thanks Dave

Have checked the Camera App to verify that permissions are set for location, storage, phone, camera - allow all permissions

are storing photos taken by the camera on a SD card, or to Internal memory? Also can use File Manager and look into the DCIM (Default picture) directory to see if any files are being written to that directory ?

Have you tried to switch the storage location for the camera app back to internal memory?

I just switched it to internal memory and it is working now. But shouldn't I be able to store them on SD card?  thank you

yes, you should be able to store photos on the SD card, but I believe any video you take automatically get store internally.

can write a document file and store it on the SD card. It maybe a bad card, I don't think you can write lock a microsd card. I look on my Note 20 Ultra in file manager no option to write lock the ds card.
