My Gallery doesn't load new pictures
rant: I've noticed this since my ICS upgrade. My Gallery won't load new pictures copied or moved to folders until either the SD card is unmounted and remounted or the phone is rebooted. I tried clearing the app's data and reformatting the SD card and nothing has worked.
My final conclusion was to install QuickPic, which seems like a worthy substitute. It's just a shame to have to rely on a third party app for something that should be a basic smartphone function.
This tip fixed my gallery issue on my Nexus 10 running 4.2.2
Thanks for the tip. I was doing some "clean-up" and orginization of some video clips on my phone and the gallery database got out of sync with the actual contents. Clearing the database and letting it rebuild fixed it perfectly.
At first I thought I messed something up using the ASTRO File Manager, since I had just downloaded it and this was the first time I had used it. But I found no other reports of ASTRO causing an issue like this and eventrually ran across this tip. Thanks for posting!
