    Question Media Player/Gallery Problem with Samsung S3

    Hi,

    Been having this problem for quite some time now. I usually upload my photos/music to my s3 by connecting the phone to my com thru a USB cable, while selecting the optiong "connect as media device". And once i transfer it over, the newly added files will popup in my gallery/music player.

    But recently, files i added did not appear in my gallery. Tried the app Rescan Media but it does not work too. Downloaded a new Music app(Rocket player) and it too is unable to find my newly added music files.

    Suspecting this to be a USB connection issue as the file is in my SDCard but somehow, the media scanner just can't pick it up. The issue might also be caused by me not disconnecting the phone before opening up the gallery/music player.

    So how do i solve this? Last time i solved it by restoring it to factory settings... I totally do not wanna do that again as it is a hassle to back everything up again.

    P.S: I tried the .nomedia solution. There is no .nomedia file in any part of my phone, hidden or otherwise.

    Which folder did you move the files to on your phone? Are they visible with a file viewer like Astro?

    Have you tried rebooting the phone?

    Hmm. Try using an alternative gallery like QuickPik for pics and Power amp for music to force a rescan.

    Ok last thing then I'm out of ideas, pull the battery and leave it out for about a minute, then put it back in, and reboot it. See if that works.

    Removing the battery for more than a few seconds resets the memory, so it forces the phone to rescan. Glad it worked!
