    So I found this sound annoying and was surprised that it can't be disabled manually via the settings.

    Anyways, here you go (not I tried editing the other strings in that directory and no effect--this is the only one that works):

    To disable the shutter sound on the Treo 700wx's camera use a registry editor and go to:

    HKLM\System\Pictures\Camera\OEM\SoundFile

    Under "String" it should say

    \Windows\ShutterSound312.wav

    Simply edit out this line and leave the string empty.

    Exit the registry and do not soft resetfor at least a couple of minutes to let the change write to ROM.

    No soft reset is needed for change to occur.

    Now, whenever you take a picture there will be no sound.

    I thought it was kind of obvious: pick your sound file and put it...somewhere on your device

    replace that "String" line with the program path to that sound file and it should work.

    Couldn't you just rename the ShutterSound312.wav in the windows folder to something else? Wouldn't that work to change it or get rid of it if the wav you saved was empty.

    Sounds like someone was searching the registry for an SMS fix and found something else!

    lol, all though technically yes I was doing that last night, this thread is actually from 9/9.

    I jumped in pretty early trying to kill that shutter sound.

    it's a system/ROM file, you can delete or modify it, hence the registry edit!

    Another possible solution is to turn the sound off via the hardware switch when taking pictures.
