I used FileExpert to transfer few jpeg images yesterday. The images did not show up in the gallery.
I restarted the phone and I could see the transferred photos under Gallery.

Same for music. I copied over some music (mp3 files). I went to the stock app (Music) and they did not show up. However, When I restarted the phone, the files showed up immediately.

I am wondering whether this is a regular phenomenon? Is there a way to refresh the stock gallery / music to ensure that the files reflect immediately? Or should i transfer files in a different way?

I have Gingerbread (2.3.4), if that helps.

Any help is appreciated.

Try closing out of the gallery app then reopen it. If not, you could force stop the app in menu - settings - applications.

That may be what works before having to reboot the phone.

so is it a known issue? I mean, it is only for the SD card items. Weird that no one else has encountered this issue maybe?

Not that is a known issue, but the app may not automatically refresh itself when its open and new contents are added to the sd card. I've not seen people complain about it so its likely not too much of a bother for many people.
