    Is there a way to set the slide show directory when in dock mode? It seems to just display everything it finds on the SD card. This is crappy as I don't want every image on my SD card to be shown. I use Touch Down for exchange and it downloads all attachments and email images to the SD card which means my slide show displays a lot of meaningless graphs and icons.

    i believe there's one or two apps that utilize the dock that have slide show features. i wish i could remember the names, but they might be of some help.

    Set up a new folder in the media section. Put the photos you want to be in the slide show there. This should give you the choice of what to select when you hit the photo slideshow button...

    I am not sure I understand what you mean.

    When you open up Gallery you can click and hold a folder and select slide show and it will only show that folder. Unfortunately once the Droid is docked there is no way to do that same thing.

    you can do anything when the droid is docked. just hit the "home" button on the screen. (shaped like a house) and it will bring you to your home screen. then launch gallery and etc.

    Yea I get that, I was just hoping the slideshow icon on the dock screen was a little more configurable.

    Not when activated using the dock home. It will just play whatever it finds on your SD card regardless of the folder it is in. That's the problem. If you want to navigate to the Gallery app and click hold a particular folder you can slide show just that folder. This makes the dock slideshow somewhat pointless.
