I downloaded OS 4.0.1 on my 3G and half of my pic's in the album screen are blacked out. I can tap them to come up but i cant preview, i have restarted, and restored no joy.

I had this same error, I found no fix and have reverted back to IOS 3.1.3 now as the few extra features in IOS4 are NOT worth the much larger collection of faults, annoyances and the glacial speed drop.

If you want help reverting, just ask as it took me a few days to work it out :)

here's how i fix this issue, as it also happens on the iphone4.....

1. unlock your iphone
2. open the photo app
3. plug your phone into computer/itunes and click "sync" while the photo app is open
4. after phone is done syncing, you should see the battery charge icon on your iphone, move the lock slider to the right to "unlock"
5. you should see a white screen with grey picture frames on your screen and the words "updating your photo albums" (or something along those lines)

if it still is jacked up, just re-click the sync button in itunes.

the key is in step 2. make sure you have the photo app OPEN before you sync.

i just did that, thanks for the info.

now hopefully no more blacked out album screens.
