Default [Q] Walkman take so long to update song list

i really love the this phone but its the little things like this that annoys me.

does anyone else have this problem? whenever i put new songs on my SD card, the walkman app can take forever to show that new song. even after i play the song directly from a file explorer, it still isnt in the walkman list of songs. it can take about 3-4 hours before the song than included in the walkman list of songs

yes this happens a lot to me too. I have root so I installed enable media scan. It's the media scanner not finding the songs. This app helps me out a lot of times. If you don't have root, try moving your music to another map on your SD, should work too, because media scanner will detect it now as it is being moved from one place to another
Devices:
2011-2013

Locked Bootloader
CWM-Recovery (Xparts)


2013-future

Hit if I' helped you (:

That's right. The 2.0.A.0.28 is the WALKMAN widget and the 6.0.A.0.26 is the music player.
The latest version is 8.1.A.0.3. You can't get it from play store but from xda. Here for example: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2587018
