    Hi everyone,

    I have a Nexus One v2.3.6 build number GRK39F. Sometime ago, all my pics and vids were deleted due to "MediaScanner deletes jpg and gif files" bug that was reported by a number of users.

    Tried following ways to recover my data with no luck:

    1-tried removing all .nomedia files but didnt help. It showed a lot of pics but the ones I am after didnt turn up.

    2- Mounted sdcard on my Windows 7 laptop and used Recuva to deep scan and retrieve pics. Managed to retrieve very old pics that I had deleted a while back but did not find the ones that went M.I.A.

    3- Rooted my phone, installed clockworkmod recovery to see if i can assign a drive letter to my internal phone memory. This is where im currently stuck.

    Im thinking that somehow, those pics and vids were moved from sdcard to internal phone memory. I need a way to assign a drive letter to my internal phone memory so i can deep scan using recuva and see what i can find.

    i would be very grateful if anyone can point me in the right direction of exactly how to do this. Thanks!
