Default Gallery showing wrong thumbnails/pics

I seem to be having an issue with the gallery.
On some pictures, the thumbnail displayed is the correct picture but when I tap that picture a different picture is displayed. If I get info about the picture the name matches the thumbnail.

Ex. thumbnail shows a pic of my dog, when I open the pic I see a picture of my cat but get info says the file name is MyDog.jpg

This is happening in multiple folders, not just the DCIM folder.

I have tried clearing gallery data to get it to rebuild the pictures and even deleted the entire DCIM folder but still am not seeing the correct pictures.
I eve tried moving the pictures to my PC, opening gallery and saw nothing, moved pictures back and they still don't show correctly.

Are there some other cache files I need to clear?
Any other tips?

I renamed a picture and now it shows up correctly.
I took a different picture and saved it under the original name and now that picture is showing up with the same incorrect information as the original file did.
There's gotta be a cache file somewhere that is linking the file name to an incorrect location.

Anyone???

Found it.
\\SDcard\Android\Data\com.cooliris.media
I deleted everything inside that folder (after copying it to my PC of course...)
That caused the gallery to FC when I tried to re-open it.
Reinstalled Gallery3d.apk and after taking a looooong time to rebuild everything my pics are now back to normal.

Sweet,
Have been quietly monitoring this thread. I recently installed a new rom, and after the install, every time I tried to open a specific pic of the wife, kids, and I, I got a nudie pic that a buddy sent me of his ex girlfriend. The wife was not amused.

regards

Well, an interesting thing happened...
After clearing the stuff from \\SDcard\Android\Data\com.cooliris.media
Now, I am no longer getting FC and lockup issues with the camera.
I have taken 30+ random pics over the last 2 days (in multiples of 3-5 at a time) and have yet to get a lockup.

Hmmm......

Sorry, I was in the middle of a computer crisis - on Sunday, my PC would not boot. On Monday, figured it was the PSU and my old one showed faults. Bought new PSU - and no boot.

Gist of it - I have 3 fried HDs - OS and 2 storage drives. So, I haven't been here in a couple days.

Otherwise, I would have pointed you to my thread in the CM forums detailing the caches in that folder: [NIGHTLY] [CM7] Discussion of Nightlies - CyanogenMod Forum - Page 110

Glad you found it yourself - and yeah, it makes for a lot of memory saving initially, until those cahces are built again. I think someone needs to write an app that clears those particular caches, then runs an SDScan, then reboots the phone ....

just sayin'

Angry Seriously... cache clearing made easy please!

You know, I shouldn't have to be a darn Tech-nerd to figure out my issues and find my own solutions the way the person in this thread did. I am having contact to faves out-of-sync conditions (similar to the one mentioned in this thread) and I would never have dared to go in and delete anything out of any folders on my droid.

?!? Seriously... can a normal person who bought the bionic to use as a normal phone/txt/email/photo device please catch a break?

I'll check out the link provided for instructions on clearing cache... but if I have to copy all my files to a pc, delete files and folders from my bionic, then re-install some other file, and hope I didn't screw up the whole thing, I'm not gonna be happy.
