    So I've uploaded a picture from an iPhone screenshot.
    I have this big black shape when I go to my Camera Roll. It started after the upgrade to iOS 4.0. I was hoping iOS 4.1 today would fix it. But alas, it did not.
    I'm starting to think the pictures being covered are my iPhones way of saying "I'm too embarrassed to show these.:eek:"
    Hopefully that's not it, there's nothing to be ashamed of iPhone. Please, let me see my pictures.
    Anyone got any advice.

    Unless you are my buddy, which I don't think you are, he is having the same problem too. I am not having any issues after upgrading to 4.1 so it seems to be isolated events.

    I had the same issue. Turns out it was a picture sent to me by a friend. What I did was sync, transfer all the pics to the computer, then start deleting them from the phone one by one, once I found the right pic the issue was gone.

    I saw that bug many times before.
    Save your pics to a folder and then sync them back thru itunes.
    It usually happens when you update to 4.0+ or you restore from previous 3.+ backup on 4.+ firmware.
    Its better to restore and setup as new.

    So I restored!
    Nothing!
    Oh well...looks like my camera roll will have to start anew.
    I'll make a nice little "Former Camera Roll" folder.
    Thanks guys.

    I'm having the same problem too...except with my videos in the camera roll.
    They are all greyed, whited or blacked out.

    In my iPod app some videos have a weird rainbow effect running through the thumbnail....

    Whether in the camera roll or iPod video section, when the thumbnail is blacked out you can't tell which video it is until you play them. Once playing they appear fine and clear as they should.

    Does anyone know of a solution?

    The following worked for me just now.

    The following just worked for me just now on iOS4.1. Pretty straightforward... get freeware, delete three files, close and re-open the photo app. I guess you'd want to back up the photos first in case something goes wrong (I didn't, but none were critical if I'd lost them).

    See http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2511948&tstart=1

    It's a nice solution because it works on both Mac and Windows.
