    I'm Blake I got a Droid about a month ago and I LOVE IT!!!!but I think something is wrong. I downloaded some videos and now it runs really slow and when I try to view my gallery of pics the bloody thing forces close and it wont load all my pics. I'm thinking I might need to wipe my SD card any ideas

    Have you rebooted it? Just turn it off and back on.

    Super highly unlikely you downloaded a virus on your phone.

    Download Astro or some other file manager. Using the file manager, go to your "downloads" folder on the SD card. Delete the videos you downloaded, reboot the phone.

    Mine did that once when I tried to play a .wmv file that was supposed to be supported, but apparently was not. Deleting the video fixed it.
