    Unable to view photos from Gallery

    I was able to view photos from gallery in my Android phone while it was connected to PC through USB. But I am not able to see them in my phone. How can I re-establish connection and view photos?

    When you connect your Device to PC, the PC wont recognize the SD Card first. you need to mount the SD card in order to see all the Contents located in the SD Cards.

    There is a Folder "DCIM" available in the SD Card, your pictures will be located inside that.

    All the Best.

    I thing your picture is saved at any other place due to following reason:-

    1. you does not set the path for gallery
    2. you are using your default setting ofter inserting SD card

    If you enter the SD card then you need to mount it. As this time
    you are not getting your document then see in DCIM
    So go there and get your data

    Dear friend, I'm happy as long you are having your pictures in your phone/SD Card. Take a backup of the photos and check the location of photos in the SD Card. Possible reasons could be the location is changed by some means and it is providing you this strange behavior. DCIM is the default folder location where the photos will be stored even if the storage is chosen as Storage Card / Phone Storage.
    Go to Camera-> Menu options-> Storage->Storage Card

    Take a picture and save it. Now try to connect your phone to PC and check where the recently taken picture is located. Once you locate the place, keep all your old pics in the same folder. Now, you must be able to see all the pictures from the Gallery.

    Hope this Helps!! All the Best!!

    Hello Dear Friend,

    As you want to know about that you are unable to view photos from Gallery for this i thought that your picture is saved at any other place due to following reason:- Firstly if you does not set the path for gallery and secondly if you are using your default setting after inserting SD card. If you enter the SD card then you need to mount it and at that time you are not getting your document. So go for it and get your data and views your photos from your card.

    Hope this will be beneficial for you. All the best.

    First of all take a backup for your pictures by transfer them in your PC via USB.It may be due some settings error you are unable to view photos from Gallery. And also one of the reason may be virus in your device.After taking the backup you can go for factory reset.

    Do the following settings to view all the photos in Gallery

    Camera >> Menu >> Storage >> Memory Card

    Now whenever you click a photo you will be able to view in Gallery

    Hello,

    The answer is either your Phone is corrupt or your memory card is corrupt . you can go to any store and get these backed up.

    hello,
    remove your sd card,put it in phone again...see if it helps.
    else get your sd card scanned for virus in your pc.
    then switch off your phone and on it.
    i think you will definitely see it now.
    good luck!!!

    Hello friend,
    There may be some software regarding issue to must have to rset your phone and then try again.

    Remember, by performing a reset, all your data- settings, messages, apps, etc would be deleted.
    So backup up anything important.

    Follow these steps:
    - Go to 'Settings'.
    - Privacy.
    - 'Factory Data Reset'.
    - Fill in your id and password and confirm.
    - You can choose whether to delete SD card data or not.

    After the process is complete, your device would return to its out-of-the-box state or to its factory settings.

    Regards!

    Re: Unable to view photos from Gallery

    My dear friend let me tell you that this a very common problem.And there is one more thing that you do not have to do any Factory reset because after that you will lose all of your data.Now the reason that you are not able to see those pics is that sometimes some folders are invisible to your computer and if you want to see those photos again then you have to create a new folder and transfer all the pics to that folder.After that you will be able to see those photos in your pc.
    Good luck!!!
