    What are all the weird files showing up in the new galleria? I have a "Camera" folder and then a bunch of very long file names that look like random numbers and characters, they look like this: "15dbe587-57a...d058(1)" anybody sees this?

    They were probably put on the SD card by an app you downloaded. What directory are they in? You can create a file called .nomedia and put it in that directory and they will no longer show up in the Gallery.

    I just recently noticed this also. They are all icon png files for all of the apps installed on the phone. I've looked everywhere to find out how to get rid of them, but I haven't found anyway to. The weird part is that it did not happen with the 2.1 update. Mine started doing this on 4/13. I manually updated my phone on 4/6 and I specifically remember checking out the new gallery and it was fine. I had to do the factory reset to get the picasa albums to sync, and it was still fine after that.

    Anybody know what is going on? How to fix?
