View Full Version : Deleted photos thumbnails still appearing? Music lists twice or won't delete?

I'm posting this because I was chasing this bug around for several weeks and most posts just had you reformat your SD card (which is a pain, if you have a nearly full 16gb card).

So...

Try this:

Go to SETTINGS > APPLICATIONS > MANAGE APPLICATIONS

Select the ALL tab

Scroll down to MEDIA STORAGE

Select CLEAR DATA

Your phone will have to rebuild everything it knew about photos, videos, and music on your phone, but erased photos should no longer appear as thumbnails or icons nor should you have double listed music.

Someone should create an app called "refresh all media" or something like that. I'm not an app builder, so wouldn't know how to do it myself.

Delete photos with your file manger, not the gallery. When you open the gallery again the thumbnails should go away.

Yeah, so I did this and now nothing is repopulating. Advice?

Try plugging your DX into your PC via USB for mass storage. This unmounts your SD card and when you unplug the DX it will force the phone to update your media on the card. I had the same issue since I commented last and this worked for me.

Also use sdrescan for an on the go fix.
