    I don't know what to do, but I cannot get my camera to focus. Anyone else having this problem?

    Is the autofocus on? while in camera go options and look.

    Otherwise My last droid did not focus and i think it had garlic butter in it. But I took it back to verizon and got a new one for free

    Is this a brand new Droid? If so you may still be on the old 2.0 software. There was a camera focus bug fixed in the 2.0.1 update which you should receive shortly (again if this is a new Droid).

    how do you know it's not focusing? are you getting the red box? are you in macro mode? auto focus mode? infinite mode?

    what happens if you just take pics in infinite?

    I am in auto focus mode... I get the red box and it beeps twice but will not focus. This is actually the case for all camera modes. Its constantly blurry.

    Check your firmware version in Settings -> About Phone. If it is on 2.0.1 then you should have the autofocus fix.
