    How do I do a factory reset? I am having the same problems....can't access pictures or music. I can't even use my camera, instagram, or any other camera app. My battery drains so fast and my phone gets really hot. SO frustrated!!!

    Go to System Settings and then to Privacy. There will be an option to select "Factory data reset"

    I am also having the same issues except I have an additional problem of not being able to access any apps after the letter "m." Odd. I did not unplug or pull the battery..it took almost two hrs for the ICS update but I had just let it do its thing. VERY frustrating indeed, to not have apps, music, or photos.

    I had the same issue, not having my music or pictures. I turned my phone of and back on about 8 times and got all my pictures and music back. I also did this on my daughters phone and got all of her data back as well.

    I had someone help me the other day on a similar issue. If you are able to locate your apps by going into Menu/settings/Manage Apps......and if you were to back out all the way out...then by going into your App Drawer and finding you are missing Icons...then I have an answer. Given to me by another Droid Forum User....inside the App Drawer...click on the All Apps tab in the upper LH corner. You should find a pop up box.....Click on all apps. I think the new download gas it set to only show frequently used apps.

    Thank you for the suggestions. I tried a number of things, to no avail. Finally, I saved my pics and music to my laptop then my apps to the Google cloud and did a factory reset. Took about two hours but everything works fine now.

    I just did the upgrade yesterday and had the exact thing happen. I foolishly started the upgrade with only 20% battery life, but at least i plugged it in the charger first. Apparently, this upgrade taxes the battery so much that the charger couldn't keep up with the drain speed and the phone shut down while I was waiting out the "Upgrading Media Database" message. So I ended up with the same result as you... photo gallery won't see my photos and My Music won't see see my songs. I have about 200 HD photos and around 1000 songs.

    My solution is very simple. Open your "My Music" app before you go to bed (plug in the charger!) and don't touch it 'til morning. When I woke up, I now had all my music and photos available. NO FACTORY RESET NEEDED!!! It just takes time for the apps to index your library... be patient!

    Hope this helps, 'cause they sure don't warn you before you press "ok" to upgrade on your phone.

    Wow glad i didn't have these issues I would've lost my cool. I freaked when I accidentally wiped the data for go launcher and was pissed I had to set that back up LOL.Hope every one gets everything sorted out. Phone is so much better now. Except the battery.

    Need help ASAP!!! Updated my phone on 24th and took pictures that evening...pictures were very important and have not appeared to save. I remember when I took them I could see the preview in the corner of the camera. I can take pictures now and they are appearing fine, videos too.

    Is there anything I can do to get the pictures?

    -Note: The pictures were taken using the front camera.

    Plug your phone into a computer. They are saved on the SD card with your other pictures.
