[Q] Media Scanner
Before I get lamblasted for not checking the other threads, I have read them all but not found a solution.
I have a S4 with a stock EE (UK) Rom which is currently 4.2.2 (come on EE where is 4.3!!). When I download or add a new ringtone or notification the Media Scanner does not pick it up and show it in the list. Whatever I try does not solve this problem.
I have downloaded every app I can find in Play Store to force it to run and whilst they report success the new ringtone is not found. I tried putting the ringtones onto the memory card rather than having in internal storage, still no luck. I have tried putting into the default folders (ringtones, notifications and alarms instead of Media>Audio>Ringtones etc) this also does not work.Rebooting does not work and neither does a hard reset.
The only way I can find to get the Media Scanner to work is to go to Settings>Application Manager and find the app and delete the data and cache, force close the app and then reboot. Which is just ridiculous when I simply want to add a new ringtone and has never happened on any of the other android devices I have owned.
Curiously photos are updated in the Gallery instantly.
Anyone have any ideas about how to cure this ?
