    I have a LG K30, and my photos/videos aren't saving. The only photos that save are photos taken with the camera, screenshots, and downloads from a app called Background Eraser. I download videos from Instagram, etc, and they don't show up in my gallery. Any help?

    Welcome to Android Central! Which gallery app are you using? If you're using Google Photos, tap Menu>Device Folders and see if the Instagram folder shows up there.

    Otherwise, using a file manager app, find the directory where those photos are downloading to, and see if there's a file called ".nomedia" in that directory. If there is, delete that file, and then see if the photos show up in your gallery app.

    Media apps, like Gallery, look for things in the Media Scan database, which is triggered by screenshots, taking pictures, recording sound - but not by downloading. So after downloading pictures, restart the phone (which caused Media Scan to run and find the downloaded pictures.
