Stored Music not shown in any app !!
06-06-2013 01:30 PM
- Hi ,
Using Vzw GNex rooted,unlocked and loaded with JB 4.1.1. Until yesterday everything was fine. Suddenly all music/video player apps blacked out. No stored music info was shown. (Google Music/Mx Player/Winamp/doubletwist). Restarted/removed battery/sim nothing works. But through file explorer able to play stored music. So access to sd card is fine i believe.
Any idea/suggestions welcomed

That's what I did and it works fine now.08-16-2012 02:42 PM
- THANK JESUS
I hope this works, I've been scouring every phone forum I'm part of for an answer, this is the first thread with solid info. I've been reposting this on other forums and in other threads.
Damnit, I had over 900 photos on my phone and more than 400 songs. I hope this fixes it!
Thank you guys!(and any ladies)08-16-2012 02:50 PM
- Whoot! I got almost all my photos back, those that weren't recovered I got back using recuva last night and I just have to copy them back over to my sd card from my desktop.
Got stuck in the 'safe mode' recovery loop thanks to widgets, will report back on song files.
Now that I'm looking at my album, perhaps SOME of those .nomedia files need to be there, I'm seeing pictures from games and a bunch of stuff. Maybe it blocks whatever media is present in that directory. IE if a .nomedia is present in root/SDcard then no media will appear to be on the SD card.
Or if it's in SDcard/Music/.nomedia there just wont be any media in 'music' directory.
I recommend instead of blindly deleting the .nomedia files like I did to only delete the one in your /SD directory.08-16-2012 02:59 PM
- Music is back.
So delete the following .nomedia files unless you want to see picture folders from everything in your SD card.
Root/SDcard/.nomedia (this should return your photos
Root/SDcard/Music.nomedia (if there isn't one, don't fret, deleting the sdcard root .nomedia should do it).
There you go. I hope you all a happy recovery from this botched update. I was in tears when I realized I didn't have over 3 years worth of memories on my phone.
Titanium backup and CWM recovery files are a MUST. Even with those I doubt will recover the photo file structure I had prior to my overreaction of deleting my photo file and re-creating it.08-16-2012 03:07 PM
- After deleting all the .nomedia files, force close and clear data and cache for Media storage, Gallery, and Google play music. Reboot and give it a couple mins for the pictures to show up in gallery and for google play music to work right.
That's what I did and it works fine now.

- I deleted all no media files .. went through every folder ... Now my Mx player starts showing videos .. But none of my music apps show mp3s. I uninstalled ROM manager and even did reboot several times ..
