    Unhappy Symbian OS error: -18

    Hello all,

    I am trying to getSnapshot() on an N80, and I'm getting the error
    Symbian OS error: -18 in a "MediaException".

    The only thing I can find about that error is
    which basically just says that it means "KErrNotReady"

    I've tried adding in "sleep"s to let it get ready, but it hasn't helped.

    Can anyone shed any light on what might be causing this?

    To answer my own post.

    The code I was using wasn't displaying the image, so when I tried to getSnapshot, there wasn't anything.

    getSnapshot does say that it takes a snap of what's displayed in the camera.
