The emulator's MediaScanner works fine, the Nook's appears broken.

You can manually enter images into the MediaStore:
(This requires sqlite3 installed or pull the database and do it on your desktop.)

Code:
sqlite3 /data/data/com.android.providers.media/databases/internal.db
insert into images (_data, mime_type) values('/media/myphoto.png', 'image/png');
.q
Call up Gallery.
You will see a blank thumbnail because one has not been generated yet.
Click on that.

Isn't their any way to repair the nooks MediaScanner? like, re-install it, clear the app data, copy another one in from another android 2.1 device? I don't understand why it isn't working, or why it can't be fixed. I've tried backing up the app and re-installing it, deleting the external db's, running media scan apps. Disabling it, re-enabling it...
