    I'm with you Joe! We need to get to the bottom of this. I reseted and reformatted and its now back. This leads me to believe that it may possibly be a Jelly Bean issue since I hardly have any apps installed.

    Media server is nothing more than an android service that is needed for playing any media on an android os.

    Try this. Menu / app manager / all tab / media storage / force stop / clear data.

    Or if you are rooted and have titanium backup, you can try this: freeze media storage. I don't know that this will help but it's all I have at this point...

    I don't have any media though, that's the thing. I only have pictures and 3-4 videos, which I rarely ever play... so i just don't get it lol.

    Yes, I understand that lol. But I took them with my phone so how can they go bad is what I don't understand? And is there any way to find out how to pin-point the files that are the cause.... my guess is no.

    Just a heads up... Freezing media storage is not the answer. It won't allow you to save screen shots or pictures or anything.

    I just don't feel this media server is an issue. I have been seeing it on every android phone I've had. Some times it's there and sometimes no. It just depends on how much media has been accessed.

    You look at a picture it accesses media server. You listen to music out accesses media, your alarm clock rings it accesses media. Picasso uploads a photo it accesses media, you change a wallpaper it accesses media. Your notification sound goes off guess what? It accesses media.

    I've pretty much let this run it's course but at this point I have to say you guys are on a witch hunt.

    You were definitely playing music at some time. (Music Player has been used). I noticed that Music Player does not shut itself off so go to the task manager and shut it off manually. That will probably shut down media server. On a good note, it really is not draining your battery. 2.5 hours and still have 92% left is damn good. People have the misconception that when they see a large number on Battery for a particular process, it's time to panic, but in reality it is just the percentage of all processes running on your system for a particular time period which in this case is using very little resources.
