    So the 2.2 update came down for both my girlfriend's Droid and my own yesterday. While excited to finally see many of the changes I had read about, I soon found that I could no longer take pictures...

    The camera app opens just fine after hitting the camera button. It even makes the picture-taking noise and seems to take a picture upon pressing the "shutter" button. But the little square where the thumbnail of the last picture taken is usually shown remains black. Upon going to the gallery the pictures I have (seemingly so) just taken are not present. Also, some entries in the gallery (5 of the only 13 I have so far) are now empty squares: in the case where they used to be pictures selecting them leads to a blank screen, some must have been video because upon selecting those empty squares I get a "sorry, video cannot be played" error.

    Please Help? My searches only turn up people having trouble with red and purple hues on their camera...

    Edit: Apparently the blank squares showing up in the gallery ARE the new pictures I've been trying to take, rather than corruption of older pics. Also I failed to mention the the same problem HAS occurred on my gf's Droid as well.

    Take any files you need off the SD and load them to your computer (USB).

    Then perform a factory reset, and reboot, see if that corrects the issue.
