External SD card?

On you device, go to [Settings] > [SD card and phone storage], under "External SD card", tap on [Unmount SD card], then [Format SD card] will light up for you to tap and activate it.

It'll re-mount itself after formatting.

Once the images are removed from the sd card, they should not appear in the gallery anymore, unless you've transferred them into the Internal memory.

Did you installed any themes, wallpaper or any apps that came with images?

You can also format the Internal memory card from the settings menu.

If you haven't installed too much apps or don't mind to setup your device from new again, you can Factory Reset it.

If you've installed those apps from Android Market, after the factory reset, you can download again from the Android Market.

If not, search and install Astro File Manager from Android Market, open it, tap on your device's bottom left Menu button, then choose [Tools] > [Application Manager/Backup]. On the "Installed Apps" page, check all the apps that you want and then tap on [Backup].

After that, using My Files, copy/move the "Backup" folder from your \sdcard to \sdcard\sd.

Remove your external memory card and do the factory reset.

After the reset, put in your external memory card, install the Astro File Manager from Android Market again, copy/move the "Backup" folder back to \sdcard.

Open Astro File Manager, do the same as above, but this time, go to the "Backed Up Apps" page, check all the apps and tap on [Install].

Do you know how to make this work to include data that is 'inside' the app? I have a few applications that I want to use that have user entered data. I tried using ASTRO and backed up an app that I use to manage mileage and fuel-ups for my car. When I reset the phone and restored using ASTRO, the data for my car was gone.

I'm coming over from iPhone where somehow iTunes would back up all this kind of data on sync. Hoping there is a solution with Android devices?

Can you actually look at the images, or do you only get the thumbnails in the gallery, but not the actual images?

If you only get the thumbnails, try clearing the gallery cache:

Start my "My Files" app, go to "Android", "Data" and hold your finger on the "com.cooliris.media" folder. Select "Delete" from the popup menu and confirm. Right after deleting, the cache will be rebuilt. Exit the app and open the image gallery again. Are the deleted images gone now?

Thank you!

I was having the same problem and this solution seemed to help a bit. I had a few dozen "dead" thumbnails in the gallery even though I had transferred all the images from the phone to my computer. By clearing the cache as you instructed I got rid of most of the thumbnails, but few of them still remain...

EDIT: after reboot the remaining thumbs are gone, yay!
