    hi Pals,

    just connect your mobile to pc or laptop...
    open your SD card then go to search option and search .NOMEDIA.. Select all files after getting search results, and delete all files.
    do the same steps clicking your internal memory also..
    no need to restart... go to gallery after disconnecting your mobile from PC or Laptop..

    it worked perfect..

    It won't allow me to delete the .nomedia file. Why isn't it working for me?

    I have a problem with my Lenovo A6000. My gallery seems to reject any pictures that I save straight from social media, or even sent via Bluetooth or ShareIt as well as those that I copied from my laptop. But pictures that I took using the device's I own camera appears on the gallery. It's just the photos I download, copy, or send won't appear and look corrupted. Same goes for music. I even tried downloading mp3 files using my phone but my media players say it does not support the file. I haven't tried sending documents to my phone but I get a feeling it will be the same. I actually tried downloading gallery apps but it's still the same. It can't read my files. I also have 3 music players but all of them can't read any mp3 files. What should I do?

    I am not very techie, but I followed a lot of the advice here and nothing worked. All I can think of is my "media" storage doesn't say "all/media". I found the .nomedia file using an app that "explored" my phone. It's actually called "Exployer" and I searched for ".nomedia" and TONS of files came up that had this as an ending, so went to the top of the long list, and clicked on first one, which opened a "parent file" and there it was! .nomedia I was so excited! Deleted it, then went back to my "media" storage, and cleared cache, forced stop and disabled. Re-booted the phone, went back to my "media" storage and enabled it....AND ...nope, when I download a picture from my Google Drive app on the phone, does not go into my gallery...(>_<)
    Out of frustration, b/c I needed those pics in my gallery NOW, I noticed there was an option to "send copy" when I clicked on one of the pictures in my google drive app, so I sent a copy to "Messages" and then texted it to myself! Then I received the text, long clicked on the picture, choose, "save attachment" and finally, it ended up in my Gallery! It's a work around for now, but at least I can continue my work! Just wanted to share this with any non-techies as people have done in the past and I really appreciated it!
