I downloaded a PNG using the phone browser. It goes to /sdcard/download. Works fine

I try and copy it to /scard/icons. Now, the image takes about 30 seconds to show up, if I go into the gallery app it doesn't show at all, and trying to use it as an icon in LauncherPro fails.

Put it back in /sdcard/download, works fine

Whats up with that?

Your phone hasn't run mediascanner again to show files. Reboot your phone (it runs when the phone boots) and it should be in gallery :D. Also, if you plan on doing this often and don't want to reboot all the time get a rescan media app in market. Here's the one I use Rescan Media ROOT.
