    I recently moved all my photos and videos to an SD card for storage, although now i can't view them in my gallery. I can see them when i link my phone up to a PC, so know that they have moved successfully to the SD card, although i can't see any photos i've taken SINCE the move to SD card, whether on PC or on phone. Can anyone help please?

    Welcome to Android Central! Which directory on the SD card did you move them to? Make sure there isn't any file called ".nomedia" in that directory, which would instruct the system to ignore that directory when looking for images to add to the Gallery database.

    Also, install SD Insight, free from the Play Store and see what it says about your SD card.

    Also either restart the phone or run media.Re.Scan. The Media Scanner doesn't know that you moved them, so Gallery can''t see them. (Gallery doesn't look on the phone for pictures, it looks in Media Scanner's database.)
