I have this issue on the Nokia Lumia 610
i am only able to select photos from the smaple folder. this true if the usb is connected or not.
in the prefences i have the option that says "sample photos" but selecting it only turns it white and doesn't do anything.
I'm setting up 8 of these phones and only one of them is doing this. it was the first one that i setup as trial first. the others are downloading the full version and are not having any issues.
i have uninstalled and installed the full version to no change.
Your help in this would be useful
Interesting... Since it is only one, maybe the way you configured the Live ID? Does it differ from the others?
