Yes, it happens all the time. The first time takes about 30 seconds. Then it does it one more time for like 1-3 seconds.

It depends on how much stuff you got on your sdcard.

Mine was taking forever...

Create a file named ".nomedia" and put it in any directory you want the media scanner to skip (top level, and it will skip subdirectories).

Don't do like me and wonder where all your ringtones went and why your gallery is empty after putting ".nomedia" in /sdcard. :)
