    Good question. I've actually been wondering the same. At this point, I have a lot of them.

    Pretty sure they are mostly created by the 2.1 Gallery........and they can cause problems.

    If your Gallery is giving you issues then deleting these can resolve some issues (not the only place where you need to delete files for Gallery issues though).

    Disk Cache Files

    I am just guessing, but I think DiskCacheIndex54321.tmp files are created by downloads that get interrupted. I just recently noticed the "DCI".tmp files on my phone, and I also just changed the setting on my phone for "where cache files are stored" from internal to external. I live in a low coverage area, where I do get 3G, but only one bar on the signal meter. (About 10% of my calls get dropped) And I love music, and was actually downloading music when I noticed the .tmp files showing up on my SD Card. So, I assumed that they were created by the system to hold what has already been downloaded, until it can resume. They are all 0mb. ARE EVERYONES "DCI" FILES CREATED AS .tmp FILES? I wish someone would explain WHY THESE FILES ARE CREATED? and I am really curious as to WHY THEY ARE JUST PLACED ON MY SD Card, AND NOT IN THE DESIGNATED CACHE FOLDER? I change settings, and do lots of different things to my Droid almost everyday. ARE "DCI" FILES A NORMAL FUNCTION, OR ARE THEY DUE TO SOMETHING I HAVE DONE? It seems like only a small number of people are interested in this topic, and no one has yet to give a definate reply. WILL SOMEONE THAT REALLY KNOWS ABOUT THIS PLEASE POST A REPLY?

    Disc Cache Index

    Read the following : JCS - Indexed Disk Auxiliary Cache - Java Caching System

    Yes, seems you can delete them with no issues.
    A lot of technical info @ that site.
