    The gallery only separates pictures based on which folder they're in; if you want some pictures to show up separately, you have to organize them into separate folders.

    To put music onto your phone, you can basically drag the songs anywhere onto your phone, and the media scanner will pick them up so they show up in your music player.

    Keep in mind that the media scanner runs when you restart the phone, or when you mount the phone to your computer then unmount. What I'm trying to say is that if you put some files onto your phone, then they won't show up until after you unplug your phone from the computer.
