    Hello everyone,

    I have a rather weird problem:

    After I take a photo with my phone's camera it erases / corrupts it. I believe it's corrupting them since there are details and the files have a size, (as opposed to 0kb). If i take a photo and view it immediately, it shows without a problem, but after a few minutes when I go back to the Gallery, it just shows the message "Cannot generate thumbnail". I already transferred all these pictures to my PC and I can't view them there either.

    Please help I'm not sure what happened. The phone is a ZTE Blade L2 Plus. The only app I've downloaded recently was the Gmail App.

    Thanks in advance and happy Holidays!


    **Update: I've pinpointed the moment in which the pictures "disapear", it happens only if the phone is locked for more than a minute, as long as it's still on the pictures and their thumbnails are still there. Any ideas? Thanks again!

    Is your camera app saving the photos to the internal storage or to an SD card?

    Hi ManiacJoe,
    It's saving to the SD card.

    If you change it to save to the internal storage, does the problem stop?
    If yes, it could indicate that the SD card is going bad.

    As an update, I changed the settings so it saves the pictures to the internal storage, so far it works!!! I will get a new SD card and check if it works better.

    Thanks ManiacJoe!!

    Well ManiacJoe, looks like that was it! I got a new SD card and after a couple of days it works just fine.
    Thanks again,
