    I just pulled up my gallery to look at something and to my surprise all of my media was suddenly gone. Anyone know anything about that? Is there some secret combo of buttons that wipes the SD card i may have hit?

    Not really, have you tried a batt pull and restart and see if they are back?

    Can you connect and mount it on a PC and see if you can see your data?

    Well i tried the battery pull and the couple pictures i saved to test are now gone. I'm confused, lol. When i pulled up the music player it said there was an error on my SD card went about scanning it for a while. Maybe the card crapped out.

    Edit: So i uninstalled an app called 'free memory' and now my interim test media is back but not my old stuff i had before going on this adventure. I think i'll try another restart.
