[Q] is there a way to force the Media scanner to scan USB volumes (e.g external SD) ?
I did some research but could not find a solution that works.
i can mount external USB volumes (e.g. SD cards) and i can see then with File Explorers, and i can view individual photos on those mounted volumes, but those photos don't appear in the "My Gallery" app, i.e. they are not included in the Android Media database.
I tried setting "StickMount" to "Scan for Media on Mount", and I tried a couple of utilities that trigger media scanning, but apparently the Media scanner does not look in all the mounted USB volumes, it seems to just look in /sdcard .
BTW, i checked and there in no ".nomedia" files on my external USB volumes (the presence of that file in a folder disables Media scanning for that folder)
I have a rooted Atrix 2 with ICS 4.0.4 (stock from ATT)
is there a way to tell the Media scanner that it should also scan some other folder / mounted volumes, in addition to /sdcard ?
