    So, this morning I noticed that I have lost random pics from my gallery. My guess is that as I was unmounting my Droid from the computer, I pulled it a bit prematurely. I have a few questions regarding this.

    1) If this is the case, did I mess up my SD card, and will this be a permanent issue? Obviously, no one can really say for sure, but if anyone has done something similar, I'd like to know so that I can back up my data and possibly look at a new sd card.

    2) Is there a good solution for backing up pictures/video/any other data on my phone?

    3) Strange thing, if I browse my SD card, I think I have found some of the pictures, they are just not showing up in gallery. Just to add to the mystery.

    Opinions are appreciated, should I wipe and flash a new rom or recovery to see if that takes care of random bugginess? Full disclosure, I'm running the 2.1 bb v. 1.1. Thanks.

    Mine does this on occasion but after a while they will reappear. I have no idea why.

    You probably had an issue when mounting/unmounting your SD card. Prematurely pulling it could cause issues. Have you considered formatting your SD card? (of course backing up everything on it first)
