    Unhappy Stored Music not shown in any app !!

    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

    TIA,
    SP

    If you are using ROM manager look for a .nomedia file on your SD card and delete it

    I found a "no media" file in my rom toolbox folder. Would I delete that one? Or are there other "no media" files in other directories?

    There are actually more than just one. I delete all the ones I found but I still don't have all my pictures back.

    Found out that yesterday's update to Rom Mgr is what caused the problem. They released an update to fix it this morning.

    After deleting data on Media Storage and rebooting and waiting a little bit of time to refresh, it all works now.

    Apparently the rom manager app is causing this but I still go into Root Explorer and delete all the. .nomedia files I can find but still no music or photos

    Then reboot and then give it 20-30 minutes. They should reappear.

    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.

    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)

    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.

    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.

    Yep, I was so burnt up over it I didn't get to sleep either. I suppose I should have slowed down and I would have seen the .nomedia file in my SD card root directory and possibly would have sparked a thought.

    Ohwell, live and learn. Keep those backups fresh ya'll!

    Clear data in Media Storage, then reboot.

    Also, let this serve as a warning: no one should be using ROM Manager

    I am not using Rom manager and I just got this issue after installing the latest Euroskank. No music files showing in any music player and just noticed no galleries except for dropbox.

    Check your app drawer--ROM Manager should install with it b/c it's included as a system app of CM10.

    I'd try a reboot first; either that or start hunting for .nomedia files in the root of your SDcard.
