    From the past 2-3 days my android kitkat phone is heating like hell. I came to know that an application named Mediaserver is eating up 60-70% of my battery life. When I searched about Mediaserver I came to know that it is related to Google Play Music. When I opened Google Music I was shocked to see that it only showed 1 song instead of 127 I have on my external sd-card. I tried to reboot my phone, uninstall Music and re-installing, but of no use. Please tell me what to do as I dont want to factory reset my phone.

    Hi there,

    Mediaserver is not JUST related to Google Music, it's related to all media stuff in your phone. And the reason it shot up is because of the SD Card. This process is also used to scan your SD card when its mounted to look for media files. However, if the SD card is damaged or there are corrupt files, it can trigger the process to constantly scan your card, which drains your battery and can cause the heat issue. I'd suggest you check your card in a computer, maybe try re-formatting it (back up the files first), but if it happens again, maybe your card is failing and I wouldn't trust it anymore.
