I'm running iOS 5 beta 5. How do I get them to show properly?
I have no problems. Did you set up as new iPad? I did. Also, try to unsync then resync your photos.
remove them all and re-add them. did you update OTA? if so did you do the "erase contents and settings" method as apple said?
I just had this issue. Either do as shandyman said, or in my case, I had a photo plist file corrupted and had to delete the relevant plist and rebuild the iPhone photo library. Not much fun, but it worked. When I get 5 minutes, I can look out the method I used to do this if that would help?
Yes, that would help alot. I have this same issue and wish to fix it.
Photos seem quite bad in beta 5. I don't take pictures on my iPad, but on iPhone some pictures don't show up in camera roll at all, some show up black. Of the ones that show up black some appear in Photo Stream looking ok. I've even had a photo I took which never appeared in camera roll but still made it through to Photo Stream.
I found a solution for this exact problem on iOS4.1 but it proved not to work in iOS 5. Does anyone have a solution besides wiping the phone and starting over?
I've been having this issue since beta 5 as well. If you could post your method for fixing this and rebuilding the database, I would be really grateful. Thank you!
this was a known issue, either way it has been fixed in beta 6
Actually the issue is persisting for me in Beta 6, even with a complete wipe and restore. I need a method that will allow me to force the camera app to rebuild my photo library database from scratch because it doesn't seem this problem is going to fix itself in this beta, at least not for me.
I had the same problem. Below seemed to solve it for me.
If you're not comfortable modifying system files/folders on the phone do not proceed. I'm not an iOS expert so if you brick your phone following these directions don't look to me for help. I just did some research and figured that by doing this it would force the entire photo library to essentially start from scratch. If you have photos on your iPhone that you are afraid of losing I assume you would be able to take them from the DCIM backup directory (step 3), import them into iPhoto and then bring them back into your iPhone via sync after completing the steps below. Don't hold me to that though.
1> Grab iPhoneExplorer (so you can browse the filesystem)
2> Force quit the Photos & Camera apps (may not be necessary)
3> Browse to the Media folder on the filesystem (via iPhoneExplorer) and drag the contents of DCIM and PhotoData to a folder on your computer to back them up
4> Delete the contents of DCIM
5> Delete the contents of PhotoData
6> Launch Camera app and take a picture
7> Launch Photos app and confirm the Camera Roll is working properly
This also seemed to resolve the annoying errors that always said it was syncing, restoring, etc while viewing the camera roll and other albums.
This just happened on my iPhone 4s. I will try the iPhone explorer fix tonight
Edit: The iExplorer fix worked. Thanks.

I just used the iExplorer fix with my iPhone 4 running iOS 5 (was never in the beta). Nothing short of a lifesaver, I had gotten back from a three-week vacation in south asia when this problem started happening mid-way through. I just nervously kept on taking photos
They're all there, whew.
