    I recently decided to clean up a lotta files on my DX. I moved all my videos & pics to my laptop. 2day I took some photos & was trying to use one as a wallpaper but when I try to open the gallery it opens but quickly closes. I had a pic that was in the gallery viewer that I did not remove. I deleted the gallery view pic but it still won't open. Anybody know what I can do to fix this? I remember deleting a few folders as well but am not sure which ones.

    Go to settings/applications/manage applications/all tab/select gallery/force stop/wipe data
    Pics will be fine as they're stored on SD card.

    If that doesn't work, download 3d gallery and look for empty files and delete. These are likely corrupt files.

    I get them some times too. I may have to try 3D gallery myself.

    Saw that one... lots of bad reviews. Thought maybe they were talking about a different one. Guess I'll try it out.

    You probably moves files around or copied and pasted them. The gallery pulls all image files jpgs, pngs, etc
