That makes sense, but no known date of release for such an update.

Which means that i am SOL till that point in time. =(

& i'm guessing that no one has found a way to sort out the media scanner that is in android? I'll search on my own, but i just thought i would ask in case. =)

Have there been any changes/updates on this bug?

It's been almost a year now & I have not heard anything about this bug getting fixed.

You're waiting on MMA 2. For now you'll need to use MMW to sync to the device to resolve this.

Have you maybe tried a device reset? There obviously is something wrong with the device itself that is the source of this problem (MMA 2 resolves this for you by not relying on the device for scanning files) as the device should pick up the files in the first place.

Is there an expected release date for mma 2.0? I have not heard anything.

As a matter of fact I have not only tried a device reset, but I have tried it on 3 identical devices with 3 different SD cards.

So I've given this every chance I can think of to work & no joy.

If you can think of something else for me to try I'd be happy to. But thus far there has been no fix to this bug. & with all that I have tried on the multiple devices, I'm finding it hard to believe that this is a device issue unless the whole line of these devices are all broken.

I'm not aware of others reporting this exact issue and the problem lies somewhere in the device (settings?) that is not allowing the Android Media Scanner to pick up the files in the first place. This is required for MediaMonkey to work. The fact that you have 3 of the same device experiencing this can mean the device has this issue as they're the same device.

There is no release date for MMA 2.0.

& if there was a way to fix the "setting" on the device, I'd be happy to try, but I don't think there's anything on the device that could be changed.

I've been waiting for mma 2.0 for over 4 years now. It's really getting frustrating.

I'd contact the device manufacturer as this would seem to be a standard feature on all devices, but yours.

I'll give that a try & see if they've got a fix for the AMS. But in reality it'd be better if mma had it's own & didn't have to rely on the device.

Sorry martin, i just got your message. Installing the latest build now (build 858)

"1)Go to MMA file browser
2)Go to the folder which is included in the library
3)Play some track
4)Send me debug log"

Now when you say go to the folder that's included in the library, are you asking me to go to my music folder on my sd card & play a music file from there?

Update:

Log ID R7S9P2ZTK6

I used the "folders" file browser to navigate to my "Music" folder on my SD card, which is the only folder listed in my "Library folders" in MMA. I then selected a file & played it, & then sent the logs as you requested.

Unfortunately, the Android Media Scanner still does not work.
