Does NOT run on my Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini being on KitKat (4.4.2) On my Samsung Galaxy S5 mini running stock Android 4.4.2 (rooted) it doesn't work. A toast message says that it will scan X files and Y Folders and then the CPU load increases noticeable during some time. Then I wait a long time (tested with up to 2 hours). Then I open the stock gallery application and new media files I added manually before launching this app still don't show up. A fix would be very much appreciated.
Didn't work on Moto E I tired using this to update my music library but Play Music doesn't display the new tracks. I liked the idea of one-click to launch and that makes this perfect for automation.... if only it worked for me. There is this other app "SD Scanner" by Jeremy Erickson that worked well but cannot be automated. :/ Pl try and fix this issue.
Does exactly what it is supposed to do. After downloading some new music files none of my music players could see them. One quick tap on the Rescan SD app and they all appeared in the music players list. When you tap on the app there is no visual indication it has done anything. It just makes other apps update their media lists.
Finds only some files. Bad UI. This program just doesn't find all new files. It seems to find about one new file every second time I run it. And there is no feedback of the progress or success/failure. The messages which pop up are shown only for a couple of seconds, so if you are not staring at your screen without blinking you'll probably miss some message. (The app from radefffactory actually works.)
Fantastic!! Worked fast and put my picture in gallery. I have had sooo many problems with my pictures disappearing on my Huawei g730. I have had to follow a long process to get them back. Now I know that if I have the issue again... one click on this app and it's all fixed! :)
After i dropped my phone, Gallery, MX Player, music player etc - None of the files in SD card were getting detected. Although i could manually browse and see the files and was able to write into the SD card. Since the SD card is internal i could not unmount/mount it This app worked beautifully and all files are now showing. Thanks Android 4.4.2
