3D gallery does read from SDcard by default, try moving it to /system/app and giving proper permissions.

nevermind. it is reading from the sdcard. i didnt realize things downloaded from dropbox were finding there way onto the system instead of sdcard! is this right? i thought dropbox would automatically move files downloaded from the cloud to sdcard

Dropbox downloads go directly to the SDcard , it creates a folder named dropbox in the root of your sdcard.

I agree, it should, but its not. I'm not near my device right now to tell you the exact path, but they are going to somewhere in /media in the root folder. I had to use root explorer to move an image from there to sdcard. I'll update this later with the path. I'm also going to look and see where the dropbox apk installed. I recently "8 restart" reset my device and ran the snowball mod root process. I may have geeked it up in the process. I may need to un-root and run the program fresh.

On a side note, I have never seen a device where so many people do the same thing and have so many different results. Even with snowball mod, I have some white on white menus. Such as adw ex settings menu and beautiful weather widget's settings menus.

Oh that explain better you have snowballmod which it has 2 mods to use internal space so you need to find apps that can access all your media apart of your sdcard, quickpic gives you that option instead of gallery 3D.

Settings > browser > included folders

Im sure you got an answer to this already, I had this issue too, and my music wasn't showing in the music player either. I found a folder on my SDcard labled "my files" in this folder there are folders for pictures, music etc. I moved the pictures and music to the appropriate folders a BAM they all show up now.
