    I would go to the settings menu and under manager applications I would clear cache and data for the app you are using for videos. That will force the app to check for media again and the file will not be found and therefore not listed.

    Well I "hid" the video in my phone files in a folder I had for an app then I made a ten deep folder. For example new folder into a new folder ext... it showed up in my gallery such I didn't want it too so I copied it and moved it and then deleted it from its original spot but the image of the video is still in the galllery and I can't play it because it says file does not exist and it doesn't have a delet option.. I also deleted the whole entire folder where I was hiding it. And it gave me no help....

    Maybe your just seeing the thumbnail of the video, check in the thumbnails folder on your sd card and see if that is whats showing up. If so just delete that and your good.

    Add . Zip or .bak to the folder name, when you want to view it just remove the extension.

    What are you using to access your SD card? computer? or a file manager on the phone?

    OK, most have a long press option to rename the file. Just rename " VIDEO" to " VIDEO. ZIP", not the file, but the folder its in.

    All those folders are pointless, that won't help hide it. One folder with the name will do. So any folder that the video is within will work.

    Picasa is Google's photo sharing and storage site. I'm not sure if the X is the same but on my Droid I tap menu, tap settings, tap accounts & sync, tap my Google account, and a new window opens that has check boxes to sync mail, contacts, and picasa. If you can not find the setting on your phone go to Google via your computer and look there. I'm not saying this will work but worth a look. Let us know.
