    Media >> Photos >> Videos >> and down down down into subfolders. The first is the year. I'm guessing it's month then day after that. Creation date maybe.

    You don't need to jailbreak to get to these, iPhone Explorer works fine.

    TQ for the info.
    Couldn't find Videos under 'Photos' directory.
    There are 3 directories which contain 'Videos' folder
    1./User/Media/PhotoData 2./Var/mobile/media/photodata 3./private
    /var/mobile/media/photodata
    However all the 3 'Videos' folders are empty:mad:.

    I am using iFunbox and using the search file feature, I manage to find the 2 m4v files that I transfer to iPad through iTune:).
    There are located at /var/mobile/media/itunes_control/music/Fxx and /private/var/mobile/media/itunes_control/music/Fxx
    The Folders are number F00 to F49. Not sure the significant and how itune assign the Folder number.
    If manually add m4v file without itune, how to determine what folder to use:confused:?
    Any inputs would be much appreciated.
    TQ and Have a nice day

    Sounds like you need to Jailbreak to get into those folders. I'm not, so I can't really help past what I've already said.

    I had the same problem finding my video file. Instead of using the actual file name, I search using the file extension mp4 and found that the file name had been changed and saved in the directory you mention.
