    Is anyone else having problems with the picture gallery? Mine has generated it's own tags based on file names. I dont see much of a pattern to it, but the gallery force closes when I do anything in the tags screen, so I can't delete them. I have tried factory resets multiple times and even tried a new phone. I also formatted my sd card. I know it has to be in my files, but I dont see anything that doesn't belong. Could it be that I just have too many pictures?

    Try another gallery app and see if it is better. The one that comes with it isn't that great.

    Yeah I second that, the new Gallery sucks the bitter root of disappointment. I really like the old gallery app I got from the Market.

    X2. The gallery app that comes with the phone is total crap. I'm using QuickPic now too; so much better.

    QuickPic is the best gallery app, IMO. Give that one a shot and see if the problem remains.

    I tried it. I like the hide folder options, but the thumbnail for my hidden video still shows up in my native gallery app. Any suggestions for hiding it? I tried clearing the gallery case.

    Not sure if it will accomplish what you want, but you could try renaming the file to add a preceding "." (ex: myvideo.mp4 to .myvideo.mp4). Files and folders starting w/ a "." in their name are hidden in Linux and the Android OS. If you hide the file and clear the cached thumbnails it may not regenerate a thumbnail in the old gallery app.

    ** You may need a good alternative file management program to accomplish this. The included file manager may not allow you to do that (don't know). There are some good free ones on the market. You may also need to be "rooted".

    Just a thought.

    Yep, all you gotta do is use the file manager to rename the file, simply adding a period at the beginning of the name will hide it from the gallery :)

    Hmmm, I attempted the name change. It seems that after downloading the leaked update the problem has resolved it's self.

    Dammit!! Yet another reason to jump to the LEAKED firmware. It's getting more and more difficult to just sit pat on STCK ROOTED and wait for VZ. :angry:

    I'm not sure what most of that meant... But I don't see many improvements since the update. I still drop my bars, and it doesn't seem faster as I am hearing From others.

    I think I figured out why I have all these weird tags that keep coming back! My niece is putting keywords on the files when they are on the computer. All those keywords are showing up as tags and bogging down the gallery. I'm going to try removing them. I would rather use the native gallery if I can to save room for other apps.
