    My downloads (pictures) disappeared from the gallery on my samsung galaxy note 10,1....I haven't deleted them, can't find them in ny other file or folder....some of the internet downloads can be found in the downloads, but not all...how do I get them from the downloads to the gallery, the ones that still can be found there?

    Welcome to Android Central! First, make sure there isn't a ".nomedia" file in the Downloads folder. I can't think of a reason there would be one, but check just in case. .nomedia files instruct the system's Media Scanner to ignore that folder when looking for photos.

    Go to the App Manager, select Gallery, and Clear Cache/Clear Data, then Force Stop. Then open the Gallery again, and wait for it to rebuild its database. Clearing the data won't erase any of the photos--it only clears the Gallery's database, which gets rebuilt when you open it again.

    Tried all this, still the same, nothing shows in the gallery, no pictures downloaded from the internet or mails. Can the notebook be reset to a certain date, snd that way get the pictures back?

    No, you can't reset to a certain date. Were any of these photos stored on an external SD card?

    No, the pics were not stored elsewhere....what do you think has happened with them...do I have a bug of some sort or could I have deleted them by mistake?

    Actually, some of the pics were downloaded from emails, and saved to the gallery, but they seem to have gone from the emails too..

    Where were the emails residing? It may not be the device or gallery but where they were stored prior.

    We're the pics ever visible on the device?

    It's confusing in that the media manager cannot find the downloaded pics unless like B.Diddy stated they are in a folder with a .nomedia file.

    Can you do a search with a file manager to look for .jpeg files. I'm assuming they are .jpeg files.

    All the pics saved from the internet went automatically to the gallery/downloads....and they have been visible there for the past year, until about a week ago when they were all gone

    Use a file manager to search for the pics and see what is found and where.
