Hi, copy/backup all your /Media/DCIM photos somewhere
Then backup these 4 files (if they exist), then delete them and reboot.
Should rebuild your photo library

Hi, leave your DCIM photos where they are, I just recommended backing them up somewhere first, a reboot should rebuild your Camera Roll based on what is in the DCIM folder, then you can move them to other Photo Albums afterwards if you wish.
If it doesn't work, put those 4 files back.

Hi, if you have them, copy them somewhere first as a backup, then delete.
DCIM_APPLE.plist is in the /var/mobile/Media/PhotoData/MISC/ folder
Photos.sqlite is in the /var/mobile/Media/PhotoData/ folder
PhotosAux.sqlite is in the /var/mobile/Media/PhotoData/ folder

Hi, well it would appear that information was for iOS5.
On iOS6, backup and then delete any
Photos.sqlitexxxx files you have in the
And also the
Close the photo app from the multitasking bar and reboot.
When you next click on the photo album, it should do a rebuild.
