Re: my music and pictures wont show up :(

Welcome to Android Central! Which device? Where are the photos and music located--internal storage or microSD? What directory are they in?

Sometimes you have to force the media scanner to rescan the phone--this can usually be done with a reboot. You can also go to Settings>Apps>All, select Gallery, and Clear Cache/Clear Data, then Force Stop. Open Gallery again, and wait a few seconds for the database to repopulate. Do they show up now?
