    Can someone please explain and help??

    When you open the camera roll from the start screen the first photos to show are the oldest ones, you have to scroll through many many photos (i have loads) to get to the latest ones.

    But when you open camerall roll through "photos" then click on "albums" THEN camera roll, it automatically opens at the bottom of the list showing the latest shots. Why cant i have this straight from the camer roll tile from homescreen ??

    Also, if you take all your stuff off the phone then put it back on, the videos are all separated and show at the bottom instead of it all being in nice dated view.....WHY!

    Can anyone shed light?

    Thanks in advance

    The logic behind it is you've pinned an "album" to your Start Screen, so when you first read the album you'd like to start from the beginning. This happens when you pin any album to the Start Screen. The real problem is Microsoft not providing any way on the phone to actually manage photos into albums, you have to accomplish this from the computer.
