The following error appears after taking a picture on the BlackBerry® Torch™ smartphone while Geotagging is enabled:

File Not Found

This error may appear if the city name contains an invalid character. For example, if the city name included /, and it is used as a prefix for the picture name, the picture cannot be saved as the file system considers / as a folder separator.

Update the BlackBerry Torch smartphone to the latest available BlackBerry Device Software. For instructions, see KB16071 .


Perform one of the following workarounds:

Workaround 1 - Manually save the image

  1. Click OK in the File Not Found dialog box.
  2. In the Save File dialog box that opens, provide an alternate path and filename for the image.

Workaround 2 - Disable Geotagging

  1. Open the camera application on the BlackBerry smartphone.
  2. Click the cross-hair icon to the left of the camera icon to disable Geotagging.
