    Well I deleted all the contents of my memory card to clear it up a little, and instead of deleting all my pictures and music (they're gone when you plug the phone into the computer) but it shows the name and artist of all the songs I have and keeps skipping through them? Like the song is there, but it's not at the same time and it's confusing. And with pictures; I go to gallery and it shows all my folders I had but the pictures are all just little gear pictures. >.<

    Did you try clearing cache from the recovery menu? Also try clearing data/cache from the apps in app manager?

    Hold the home button and power button down to boot the phone when it's off. Let go of power key when m logo appears. When droid with exclamation point is there let go of home and hit search key. Use the Volume up/down to select wipe cache. Then use camera button to execute it.

    Okay, I went to "clear cache partition" and then it said the cache is cleared, and I went to "reboot" but it didn't work. All the music titles are there and I try to play one but the songs constantly change to the next and the next and the next. And the picture folders are there and says "23 items" (as an example) but its only 23 little gear pictures. :(

    Doing a factory reset isn't going to fix the fact that you deleted the contents of your sd card.

    If you have deleted all your music just put it back on again. It also sounds like you deleted your pictures but not the thumbnails.

    You have to be careful what you delete.

    Go to the app itself (gallery and music) and clear the cache. If not, uninstall the apps and reinstall them

    Well I already tried to uninstall and reinstall "TuneWiki", which is the music player of my choice, but the music still does it. How do I clear the cache from a specific app like "Galery"?

    Go to settings/applications/manage and go to all and scroll down to gallery.
    Open it and clear it from there.

    Edit: I would do it with the"Music" app too

    No, even going to manage and clearing it doesn't help any. Any other suggestions?

    EDIT: And a Factory Reset won't fix this? Kinda as a last-resort? Or what about pulling the battery?

    Only other thing I can think of is uninstalling the two apps (music and gallery)and reinstalling them. Are you rooted? Are you on Verizon? If your on Verizon and rooted then just factory reset and use Z4 to re-root. If you want to save your apps just do apps2sd and back them up before you wipe.

    You don't have to be rooted to factory reset. I was just stating that u can re-root it with z4root

    It sounds like you need to reformat your SD card. That should erase everything on your SD card including your pictures. Did you back them up onto your computer before you were having trouble? I would move all apps back to the data portion of the phone before reformatting the SD card 1st.

    Is there a way I can see all of my installed apps on my PC? Or will I have to just write down the ones I want to redownload? xD

    And I a thinking of Factory Reseting to see if it'll work. I hope it does. >.<

    The Factory Reset will only reset the phone, not the SD card.
