Default corrupt pictures camera and video

Please Login to Remove!

i had started another thread regarding the video recording problems i've been having and have yet to reinstall the OS to see if it's a software issue.

and now a new problem. i've moved some pictures from the computer to the 8900 using the media software and when viewing the pictures, some pictures seem to be corrupt. but it's different nearly everytime viewed. if you close it and bring it back up, it will look fine. other times, it'll have a line across it, or half the pic is black or the entire pic is phased into some other color or discolored.

so i figured this was a problem during transferring those files, but this happens to new pictures taken from the blackberry. also, there has been about 2 occasions when the on-screen camera view was all pixelated/distorted. kind of like when your tv has no signal on a certain channel. if i close it and open it again, it goes back to normal. could all this still be software issues?

i've already got a full BSE applied on the 8900 and would hate to have to return the phone under warranty. but if i must then i must.

some troubleshooting steps i've taken and will take. i've moved all items from the 256mb card including pics, ringtones, videos to the computer and they appeared fine. pictures were fine when viewing from the computer and the few videos that didn't crash the phone worked fine as well. i then formatted the card and took some pictures and they seemed to be fine. so i will see if that does anything in the next few days.

once i get some time, i will do a full reinstall of the OS. i'm going to re-download the OS and start completely over. i'm assuming i shouldn't have to wipe the handheld since it will do it while install the OS correct?

if the picture corrupt issue comes up again, i will try a new microsd card and hopefully that will fix the problem. again, i don't know if this is software or hardware issues.
