Hi Folks,

This is a strangest strange problem "Android System ain't recognizing new Music and Photos folders"

I've created a couple of new folders one for music and other for photos.
Looks like android system core isn't scanning these newly added folders

What am I looking for? Solution (A new core 'd resolve the issue not sure:()

Currently I'm using
PowerAMP as ma music app-- PoweAMP app relies on the android sys to maintain the music library so I can't see my newly added mp3s no surprise, but you can always seek your files in Folders

JustPictures as ma Gallery app-- This is pretty good app does the work cleanly..
No prob whatsoever

Guys if you're facing the same issue fill in your default music and photo app replacements

Thanks,

What rom are you using? I had the same problem with orangepot cm6. Reflashed and it fixed it.
