    I have a problem with my Droid 1 losing photos I have downloaded and photos I take with my camera when I have to do a reboot or power off and back on, the photos are gone from the gallery, I have tryed several back up roms that did not have this problem before but they too have the same problem now when I tryed fixing the problem by going to a back up rom(ones I have made thru nandriod) anyone have a clue why this is happening and maybe a fix would greatly be appreciated...:greendroid:

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Ok, using astro file, I have found 2 folders on the sd card, 1 called downloads and the other called download, I have found photos in there that are missing from the gallery , but no photos taken with the camera located on sd card...if there is a folder on the sd card that camera photos are sent to does anyone know the name of it..I found one that says myalbum, but that folder is empty, why would these folders(download & downloads) not appear in the gallery section anymore after a reboot, its like a command line somewhere has changed or something is telling these photos to leave the gallery and they are tucked away in a folder on the sd card....anyone please....ideals

    Your photos taken from your camera are stored in sdcard/DCIM/Camera

    That's strange, none of them in that folder show up or just some? Is there a file in that folder named .nomedia?

    huh.... if there is no file in the DCIM or Camera folders named .nomedia then I'm not quite sure of the problem.

    Check to see if that file is there, if so delete it, if not maybe try unmounting/remounting your sdcard.

    Right, I think those are the thumbs that show in the gallery, make sure there is no .nomedia file there either.

    Strange, only other thing I can think of is to backup your sdcard, format it and start moving stuff back to it.

    Hi, I hope this is not hijacking but it is similiar to the thread. I have an album art stuck on multiple albums and no matter what I do I cannot seem to get it removed. I read that this is in the system library or something but do not know which file to delete to get it removed. Also I have a camera 360 app that I deleted but it keeps showing up in my market how can I get rid of this also?? I would appreciate any help! Thanks!
