Please help! Error adding images to desktop. Also 'amp;' added to image file name when syncing to anki droid

I have 2 issues with Anki right now:

  1. Previously, I have been able to add images on desktop, but when synced to ankidroid it adds a bunch of ‘amp;’ to the filename, making it not load on droid until these are removed manually.

  2. Today, when trying to add images on desktop I get the following error:

An error occurred. Please use Tools > Check Database to see if that fixes the problem.
