Default Music player won't see files on extSDCard

Hi all,

I'm on a stock VZW I545 MK2. And I have a minor issue that I can't seem to solve.

The Music player only sees files on the phone storage. I have a bunch of music on my ExtSD card that it can't find.

The music players (stock and others such as Winamp & Play Music) does not appear to see any storage other than the /emulated/0 crap.

Now I am able to see and play the files via the My Files app as well as ES Explorer.

I have tried clearing data and cache from the music apps, tried a different SD card, temp uprooting via Voodoo Root keeper, all to no avail.

Has anyone seen this before? What do I need to do to fix this?

Thanks for any help.

I let the phone format it. So what ever format that would be.

So I've now updated to MK2 and am now unrooted. Since I thought that might have something to do with it. And still the music player can't see the extSDcard.This is annoying.
