I need help and this has been driving me nuts for the past hour of two. I placed 2 new music albums to my internal SD card (/storage/sdcard0/Music) and for some reason my music player cannot detect them. What I did is I checked the entire Music folder for any .nomedia but there is none. I downloaded a SD scan app and still the same.

The last resort i did is i deleted everything from my music folder and transferred everything again from PC to the S3. Now after doing that, the new albums appeared BUT one of the older albums is not showing! I checked the folder via Root Explorer and MyFiles and the album and songs are in my internal SD card. Like I said in my first statement, these albums/songs are located in just one folder.

Same result if I use the stock music app or a third party app like N7.

I am now frustrated and lost

I am currently using LI8.

Try clearing data in "MediaScanner" in the applications manager, and then rebooting. Give it a little while as it can take a few minutes to scan the entire phone.

Try putting the music somewhere else on your SD, before deleting caches and data... If that doesn't work, you can always just delete the cache of your music player, that usually works, but try not to delete the Media Scanner's Cache, that means it will take longer to boot and get to the launcher...

If you want, you could also just download Google Play Music, it's better than Samsung's Music player (Because Music Player leaves a second out of the music..) and Play Music is much smoother than Sammy's..

Try one of those and if it still doesn't work, do the Media Scanner Cache.

Anyways, hope I could help you!

You can also decrease the scanning times by using the SD watcher mod here:
