Gallery reporting photo albums that aren't there.

I've got a problem which doesn't seem to go away permanently. I recently cleared all photos from my SD card - in fact I cleared the SD card contents completely.

However, Gallery still insists on reporting them. I've cleared data from Gallery in Settings>Applications>Manage Applications and this seems to work until the next reboot, when they re-appear. However, I think that it's only storing thumbnail information as when I click onto a specific photo, it stays 'fuzzy' and never firms up.

Does anyone know where I should look for this 'thumbnail' information as searches for the album names with File Manager have proved fruitless?

Can you check if you have a Rebuild multimedia library option in your settings ? (I don't have my tablet here with me so I can't confirm the exact path and working). If this doesn't work, there should be a directory on the tablet storage that takes care of holding the thumbnails.

 

Cheers.

This gets curiouser. Here's what I've tried so far.

Remove SD card and totally re-formatted it outside of the machine.

Cleared the data cache of Gallery in Manage Applications

Run 'Update Media Library' in Settings (is this what you meant?)

Run 'Erase NAND Flash' in Settings>Storage - this is supposed to erase all media files in the internal memory. I did this whilst the SD card was unmounted anyway.

Run 'Update Media Library' again.

I've installed a better file manager than the 'Files' app and tracked down a /mnt/storage/DCIM/.thumbnails directory and cleared it.

Remounted SD card.

 

Still these albums keep re-appearing.

 

It's not a show-stopper but I'd love to know where the little blighters are hiding!

No, there are 145 photos of my holiday in Iceland, although I have deleted the source photos, plus a couple of other albums of my own stuff.
