    So I take a picture with my Droid X, and it doesn't save at all.


    It seems to be tied to the GPS, because if I wait for the GPS to tag the photo, then it SEEMS to work MOST of the time. Thing is, I can't wiat for the GPS all of the time, I just want a point and click cam.

    I have tried disabling the GPS and it doesn't seem to work until I reboot the phone. Anyone else having this issue, any suggestions?

    I've noticed the problem too. So it's not just you.

    Happened to me the other day. The gallery would show an image icon (not a thumbnail) but you couldn't view the file. A reboot solved the issue for me and I haven't seen it again. Sounds like another 2.2 bug.

    Yep, i'm seeing this lately too. Typically, i will take a picture or a couple, and i'll be able to see the thumbnails but not the full picture. On one occasion, there was just a stock image...image...and i had to reboot to fix that.

    Started to notice this as well after I did an update from Verizon and then did the 2.2 one-click root. Not sure which function it might be a result of (2.2 update or rooting).

    I work in an office. It has a window, but it isn't
    In a house, near some mountains.
    go to settings > applications > manage applications > all

    find "camera" and "gallery" and click clear cache on each. i dont know if that will help anything, but i've seen it work with A LOT of other issues. worth a shot.

    So I guess we just wait for the 2.2 fix to come out to hopefully correct the issue?
    Kind of annoying trying to take a picture to send to a friend, but have to restart the phone just to get the picture to save.

    Settings ..applications..find gallery and clear data and cache. Restart gallery and it should be back. Worked for me.

    I've been having this issue for a while now. I used to could fix the problem by un-mounting and re-mounting the sd card, but today that wouldn't work. So to fix the problem today, I disabled the location settings in the camera options. Is there another camera app that works better? Also why doesn't the camera save the pick to the internal memory, just in case the GPS location is not available.

    Not sure if this will work for everyone but I had same problem lots of people had about taking pictures and it not saving them. I tried all the other things peole were saying to do to no avail. My problem ended up being the sd card class #. I had a 16 GB micro sd 10 class. I ended up buying a 16GB micro SD class 2 and I haven't had a problem with pictures being saved since. Works perfect now!! I have no idea why the class # causes bugs or issues when saving pictures but going to a lower class(2) cured my problem. Hope this helps people and relieves major headaches!!! :D
