    Deleted files appearing in Gallery (n80)

    Hi there,

    Can anyone help me / tell me how to refresh or rebuild the gallery on my n80?

    I have about 50 'broken boat' icons in there and a load of strangely behaving mp3 icons, that all link to images and mp3's that I have deleted from my phone!

    I think the problem was caused by using my PC to delete old images with the phone plugged in as a mass storage device.

    The extremely useful </sarcasm> manual says I should do options>free memory but there is NO SUCH OPTION! I think it was something that never got implemented.

    I haven't tried to reset my handset as I'm not sure what the ramifications of this would be re: contacts/installed programs etc... (tips on how to do this would be appreciated too) and I don't want to do it if it isn't going to work!

    I had the same problem, just solved it.
    I explain:
    1) Download Y-Browser. This is a free file manager which is very small but incredibly useful.
    2) Install it and then run it.
    3) Navigate to wherever the image/video files are (probably on E, your SD card).
    4) In the IMAGES and VIDEOS folder you will see probably subfolders, inside these subfolders, there will be a folder called _PAlbTN in the same path as the image. Delete it, all the _PAlbTN folders.
    5) After this, you switch the phone off.
    6) Switch it on and go to Gallery - Images/Videos.
    7) Now you will see that Gallery is updating again with the right images and videos.

    Hope this will help you.

    Now I see it is an old message, anyway this will help other users too, special after a firmware update from your N80 or maybe other devices.
