Contact pictures keep disappearing

I keep going into the gallery and selecting contact pictures and saving them, they show up for awhile and then disappear.  Very annoying.  Any suggestions?

Are the pictures that you are selecting on your external SD card?

Yes, I put all my pictures on the SD card.

Just a hunch here, but try copying the picture you want to use as contacts to your internal memory under the DCIM folder.  Then select these rather than the ones on your external SD card.

So all your contact pictures are on the SD card, but just some of them disappear?  If so, sorry, not sure what else to check at this point.  I'm sure someone else will chime in and if think of something I will post again.

It is very annoying.  I put them in and sit there and watch the pictures disappear before my eyes

I did as you suggested and copied them over to the internal memory and it does the same thing.

Re: Contact pictures keep disappearing

Are you setting the picture from inside gallery or from inside contacts?  If gallery, the stock gallery or one you downloaded from the Market?

Re: Contact pictures keep disappearing

I tried both actually and multiple times.  The gallery stinks, all the photos I put on the card all have the same date now which is annoying.  The app I tried is much better and you can crop and it keeps the folder categories so its easier to find stuff.  The app is QuickPic.
