Question [Q] UK ICS Media scanner draining battery / Music not showing

I am on the UK(CPW) official samsung ROM (LP7) with CF_Root.

I am having issues with the media scanner. On restart both Cubed and Music tell me there is no music on the SD-Card. ES can see and open the files.

When I unmount and remount the SD-Card or restart the Media scanner goes nuts and rapidly drains my battery. It even overtakes the screen in battery usage and the phone gets toasty. In addition the camera won't start, I get a message saying media scanner is running.

Any ideas if there is a fix?

thanks
T.

Copy data off then format via Windows as FAT32 .


Camera should work if no EXT SD card .

Default Media Scanner still going nuts

re-formatted SD card, but the problem still persists.

installed rescan media, which gets my music back, but still makes the media scanner go nuts.
