    I get this sometimes, so its not to do with the card in my case.
    If the gallery is slow loading and seems to be hanging, I close it and re-open it straight away, and it then opens up in a flash.

    Might be worth copying your external card out to your PC, format it, then copy everything back on, and give it a defrag for good measure.

    i have 400 pictures and around 35 3-15mins clips and sometimes it loads in 0.1sec and most time takes 4-5sec and every now and then takes 20+sec and dont even open

    i have NO sd card just internal memory....

    think its a bug with it as like i say most time its 4-5sec when i have a lot of stuff to load its ok but 20+ and then not too load its really poor....

    anyone has a fix?

    Use an alternative gallery - most of us end up with Quickpic (free from the Market) because the default galleries speed issues.

    Classes only really come into the fore when you consider write speeds so if your going to do lots of hd video recording then the higher class the better.

    Also such to genuine sandisk and not bargain "sandisk" cards off ebay which are almost certainly fake. These report high capacities where they are most probably only 2gb and are horrendously slow.

    There is a utility you can download to test the genuine capacity of your card. Google it, download it and give it a go.

    I've had the slow gallery load prob - fixed it by switching off auto picture upload to cloud, clearing RAM and full reboot, including battery removal.
    As a start I would try a reboot

    More than likely you have solved this problem or used Quickpic by now surely.

    For anyone else reading this post later trying to solve their problem...

    I use the Program Monitor Widget (standard on phone) to check my ram usage and close apps using way too much (ie facebook. When you close it whilst its loading, it tends to suck up ram.) When i have no apps running gallery is very quick to load.

    I've got a new Note II, having the same issue from Day 1... Slowwwwwwwww loading the Gallery :(

    Hardly any pics... seems to want to load all my facebook and other online galleries before displaying local photos. Where could one turn off that "option"?
