1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Need a lot more info. What apps have you installed, have you added any directories, etc. Is it just the gallery they aren't showing up on? Can you view them with the Files app?

    Thanks garath. I found them in the files app in the dcim folder so it is just the gallery that they aren't showing up in. I did d add a "Video" directory for dragging and dropping videos, should I delete this directory? I've installed a few apps like isyncr for mac, beautiful widgets, and ringdroid but my wife also has these same apps installed and does not have this issue.

    My DroidX is doing this too. I noticed some of the pictures were replaced by music album art so I uninstalled itag app. Luckily I had backed up the images/videos so I can just replace the files but I still am looking for a cause for this.

    I had the same problem and solved it by formatting the SD card (Settings > SD Card & Phone Storage > click Unmount SD card > Format SD Card)

    WARNING: Obviously you will lose all data on the SD card, so you might copy everything from the SD card to you PC before formatting the SD card.

    I use DejaOffice and Companionlink to sync with Outlook. After I formatted the SD card, Companionlink saw there was no Contact/Task data in Dejaoffice and deleted all my data in Outlook! If you use Companionlink, consider using the "Purge and Reload" feature (make sure you read the help first.)

    very annoying - has happened to me twice now.
    pretty unacceptable.
    and not a peep from Motorola about this?
    this is the SD card that came with the phone - it SHOULD ALREADY be formatted correctly for chrissake.

    Number of folks are having this problem since Froyo. Go to link below, sign up, and complain. The more who do so, the quicker we might get this acknowledged and fixed.
