First, files on the Z: drive cannot change, because they are stored in ROM (read only memory). That's why we have to copy the file to C: drive in order to be able to edit them. How (and why) Symbian OS first looks for the file on C: drive and then on Z:, I don't know, but it's the way it is.
To what value did you change the compression quality? Try to change to 50 or even below to be exactly sure that it doesn't work. That way the picture quality will degrade very much, so you'll see the results for sure. If you see nothing has been changed, then I really don't know the reason for it. Maybe it's firmware related? I'm on original Italian II1 firmare. Also look into your C:\Private\10202be9\persists folder, if you have 10282EDC.cre, then rename it to something else. I don't have it so I couldn't rename anything, but it's the "correct" procedure with all TXT hacks in this folder. If you don't rename it, then the settings will be read from .cre and not .txt files.
Hope it helps a bit. Post your results here...
