Thanks guys in advance for your help. I wanted to ask one quick question about the DCMI file that stores your pictures to your SD card. I was messing around with my phone earlier and possibly could have deleted something while looking through that file. This could have actually caused my gallery to start messing up. Inside the SD file I see the DCMI file and LOST.DIR. inside that DCMI file is the "camera" folder. Should there be one more folder under DCMI or in the SD FILE? I am thinking I might have deleted something by accident. Thanks again everyone in advance

Im going to give this a shot. Im not anyway knowledgeable in exactly why you gallery would be no longer displaying thumbs at randoms times. Only one thing I think might be happening is- in your DCIM folder, next to camera, do you have a .thumbnails ("dot" included in the name ) folder? Maybe your gallery has to generate new thumbnails if that folder gets deleted...though this is just a guess. In that case it might take awhile to generate new thumbnails.

On my phone's internal storage, I have a DCIM folder with a Thumbnail folder in it. This has thumbnails of my pictures, as well as covers of CDs. I also have a DCIM folder on my SD card. Inside of that DCIM I have a Camera Folder, which is where my actual pictures are stored.

Are there pictures in the Lost Folder? I would think you should be able to just move the camera folder out of the Lost Folder and back into DCIM and you should be fine.
