Prompt [Q] Whatsapp can't see pictures

I've been changing a lot of ROMs lately and I've noticed that internal memory of the phone sometimes has different names, like sdcard0, sd and any other.
Which is why when going from 1 ROM to another whatsapp saves the path of received photos with original root folder name and can't open many pictures on another ROM.

Am I right about the reason and is there a fix for that?
At least could smb say where to find the file where this path is saved so that I could manually rename the wrong paths.

And if I'm wrong about that what's the reason for whatsapp being unable to open photos on new ROM?

It is because of vold.fstab replace vold.fstab from the top previous rom and set permissions (you must be rooted to perform this)
And vold.fstab is found inside system/etc folder

So what do I need to do?
I should have saved this file from previous rom?

Have you kept the same SIM card? have you tried reinstalling the app? I've never had any problems with whatsapp before...

How is simcard related?

And no I didn't install the app, I anticipated the problem with unopening pictures with my magic powers.
