    I found a way to get the gallery to work without having to do a factory restore, I pulled the steps from a motorola xoom, and it worked for me. I did remove all of my mp3s before doing it though:

    • Goto Settings->Apps
    • Select ALL apps tab
    • Scroll down "Media Storage" application
    • Select It
    • Stop the Service
    • Select Clear Data
    • Make sure Xoom is not connected to your PC
    • Do full shutdown of your Xoom, then power it back up.
    • Wait 5-10 minutes as content is reindex. As its being reindex it is normal that you won't see anything in your Music player, gallery, or even when connected to your PC.
    • Check your Gallery or Music application to see if content has start to reappear. Don't panic if it hasn't yet. Give it another 5-10 minutes. If it hasn't appeared then try powering off and rebooting Xoom a second time.
    • If content doesn't start showing up after second reboot, Download and run the ScanMedia application from the Android market:
    • Start the reindexing process from the application.
    • Once reindexing is done your content should be visible in Gallery, Music Player, and you should be able to browse SDCard and internal storage from PC again without directory duplication/errors
