    I have searched these forums and also Google, in general, and I appear to be the only person facing this problem. I bought my HTC Desire HD about 5 months ago and have not had any unusual problems with it, other than the ones mentioned in the sticky topic. A couple of days ago, however, I used the built-in Camcorder app to record 3 videos. Today, I wanted to review and upload them to YouTube, but they didn't show up in the Gallery application. I was a bit surprised, so I used the Astro File Explorer app to search the SD card and I found the files in /sdcard/DCIM/100MEDIA. They were 3gp files and when I tried to open one of them (in Astro), I got some kind of error.

    I have a couple of questions.
    a. Why does the Gallery not show videos shot in the Camcorder? To highlight this weirdness, I would like to point out that videos shot using the Camera application do show up in Gallery!
    b. Considering that the built-in app chose to save the video as a 3gp file, isn't it common sense to include a 3gp player? Do I have to actually download a 3gp player to play these videos?

    Regards,

    Have same problem from time to time. dunno why it happens. Someone a bit more clever might be able to tell you

    Download sdrescan from the market. Might do the trick like it did for me.
