    I am using the Android camera app. Yesterday when I opened the camera app I noticed my gallery thumbnail is gray with no images. When I click on it the gallery will no longer open

    [​IMG]

    When I go into general settings inside camera app and scroll down to storage it is defaulted to phone storage but also grayed out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I embedded the image for you. :)

    Did you update to Android 5.0 (lollipop?) The gallery goes away with the new version and it replaced by Photos.

    You can always try a replacement gallery app like QuickPic.

    Is the gallery app still listed in your app drawer? Or is it grayed out there, too?

    I'd verify that your images are still there with a file browser, specifically /sdcard/DCIM/Camera, unless HTC plays some file games with where camera images are stored by default.

    Interesting. /sdcard is almost universally the internal user storage location and not an external card.

    As of Android 4.0 SD Card became your internal storage.

    Have you tried to re download the gallery from the Play Store? I had to do it because I didn't add it to my latest ROM, just HTC Gallery

    A good thing that all their apps have been segregated from the ROM and can now be updated through play store

    On my m8 it does that if u use the shortcut on my lockscreen. Try opening the camera from your app tray.
