    Any idea why this would happen? I'm confused as all get out. I lost ALL of my photos and wallpapers, but nothing else.

    I've had this happen before in the process of installing a new rom. It is the reason you want to keep the stuff on your phone backed up. It seems to just be one of those things that happens from time to time. I've heard of it happening to others also. When I had it happen, the whole internal storage and a bunch of pics on the sdcard "went away."

    Yea it was probably a rom that had its script set up to format certain things.

    Hm. Live and learn, I guess. Kinda sucks, I lost a lot of good photos.

    I understand. So did I. I was able to go through some backups I had on my computer and get back quite a few photos but I lost some that I will never get back. But I now have to chalk it up to "phone school tuition."
