Scan Media launches a scan of "external storage" - typically your sdcard.
One touch SD card update!
No unnecessary GUI. No unnecessary advertisements. (:
If your Gallery does not automatically update after adding media to the SD card, then you must download Rescan SD.
Place a shortcut of the app on your home screen to rescan and update the SD card with just one touch.
If you find an issue, do contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
I do this whenever I see duplicates in the music list, or when I manually add and media to the device over USB.
It works with the newer phones including 4.0 ICS/Ice Cream Sandwich and 4.1 JB/Jelly bean, and now 4.2.
To test the media scanner or to clean out the media cache:
Go to settings.
Click All Applications tab.
Click Media Storage.
Click Clear Data.
Now run Force Media Scanner and click the Scan button.
It will take a long time the first time you do this, as it has to read and process each video, and music file on the device.
Afterwards, runs will be much faster, and it's just updating the media store.
It's new, so if you have any issues, please email me.
*** Paid version uses a different scanning method to discover the Media which is superior to the one used in this free version and similar free applications.
Are the data copied to your Android device not showing up on the phone’s file explorer or the new data in the phone not showing up on your PC’s explorer?
Media Rescan is there to help you.Media Rescan calls the default media scanner of Android on its run-time and helps to discover the newly added data.
No Root Permission Required.
*** Android 4.0 Supported ***
It is possible, the app doesn't work on android 4.4 and higher!
In Android 4.4 KitKat, the method used by most older programs to rescan a storage medium no longer works. Instead, an interface must be used that only allows one file to be specified at a time. This app works by determining what files/folders might need to be scanned again, and then by calling the correct API on each file/folder.

Simply rescans your SD card in order to refresh all multimedia applications such as Google Play Music!
Works on Android 4.4(Kit Kat) as well as Kit Kat devices such as the Nexus 5!
I noticed some of the "SD Card Rescan" applications on Google Play do not work with Android 4.4+. This application is targeted toward all Android devices in order to solve this problem.

Did you just adb push a bunch of new media files (images / music) to your SDCARD but not seeing them in your gallery app, etc? Don't want to thumb through your app drawer to launch an application to initiate a re-scan? Don't want a force close when / if you do launch?
Give 'Media Rescan Widget' a try! It's the quickest and easiest way to initiate a re-scan of your media files.
Simply add the 2x2 widget to your home screen, grant root privileges after your initial launch, and enjoy an up to date gallery!
Note, this is a widget only, there is NO application icon that will appear in your app drawer.
To add as a widget to your home-screen, look for 'Media Rescan' in your 'choose widget' list.
If you do not have root, the widget, when clicked, should exit gracefully with a message stating 'root is required' and as a result, your media / gallery will not be updated. No need to download / install if you do NOT have root, as the widget will not provide any value.
In just one click, this app forces Android to seek for new media files and update its file database.
You must have this app installed!
