Any help appreciated.

it depends whether ur Camera app allows you to save pics to ANY location. I expect you are on stock hence it depends upon it ROM.
If the destination directory for captured images is still hardcoded in the Camera app in this manner, your options are pretty limited:
1. Hack the operating system so that Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory
returns the physical SD Card path (thereby redirecting other data to the card,
too) without breaking anything
2. Write a new camera app that gives you the option of where to save
3. Download a camera app from the Market that gives you the option of where to
Option 3 sounds a little easier.

after searching a bit I stumbled upon this u should consider asking your question here.
