    You know that all your contacts are backed up in your Gmail account.
    Long on to gmail from you pc and click on contacts and you'll see them there. You can also export your contact from there also.
    Come here little sheep; I have a nice juicy apple for you!

    If you have gmail, good advice.

    If you don't, can't you go to Import/Export off of the main contact screen by swyping menu button and export to sd card then drag to where you need them? That is what it is designed to do.

    Yes, I believe that DCIM stands for Digital Camera IMages

    Many digital cameras have a directory called that where your images are found.

    Beer Goggles,

    Yea, I realized that after posting. Was doing three things at once. I have been in that folder for camera stuff.

    I exported my contacts to sd, no problem. However, when I found them on sd in the same file format you have only two contacts in, and tapped on it, it restored contacts and everyone else I emailed that was not already in contacts. It also double and tripled up on my pc contacts. I use Gmail. Needless to say, it is worthless, unless user error.


    You may have too many contacts or a setting wrong somewhere. Not even sure what setting that would be. You could if you have the means, relflash your gapps. Unless rooted, I don't think you can do that, maybe wrong.

    Do you have Gmail, you never said?

    If you see Android etc is that not your sd card?

    Is phone properly mounted.

    If no gmail, there is another way I have not tested.

    Install Linda Manager from Market. Open and go to My Phone/system/app. There are two contact apk's there. If you longpress it opens a window with choices like send. I know it is a long away around, but if you need to bu and no other options like gmail it may work. Also, in Linda Manager you can show all content on sd card.

    Of course the above is only if you are rooted.


    Hope someone has a better answer. Sorry.
