Burrows Apps part of our Tools and have average installs from 10000 to 50000. Last Update April 10, 2016. Google play rating is 73.7696. Current verison is 3.0.1. Actual size 2.5 MB.
Crashes The 'Pick' directory feature does not work. You can't select a folder that has a subfolder in it. Apart from that it also crashes every time so I've never gotten it to work. I have KitKat 4.4.
You have to manually enter in the directory name, but otherwise, it works. • • • • • However, it seems to ignore the special ".nomedia" files and scans a directory anyhow. This poses a probem for me, as I have several app-specific media files that are stored on the SD-card [rather than in the apps' data areas].
What's new? What's been changed? Seems like every other day this is being updated for some mysterious reason, but the developer isn't bothering to list any of the changes made in the updates. This makes me nervous and if the mystery continues, I'm going to delete this app.
This app won't run without Google play services Why not? It's hardly a required function for the stated purpose. I suppose I'll find some other way to do it. Also, why does this app need updates? Did Google change the way they scan the sdcard or something?
Thank you I was finally able to get the system to scan music in a 'Android/data' sub directory made by another app
Confused I have pointed file path to look at my download folder, run the scan, I can see it going through my mp3 files but the Music folder that Google Play Music uses, is still empty......what am I doing wrong?
Ad Block block Can't use with ads not loading? Useless then
Thanks Thank you, works for Nexus 5
Awesome! Every media is back cuz of this app. Love it ! Saved my life. *phew*
Did not scan SD card Did not scan 64Mb card in my HTC One Max on KitKat. Can't see any way to tell it to scan card.
Only scans device storage This app doesn't give me the option to to change storage devices. If I manually check my SD card, a all my music and pics show up, but when Google play opens doesn't find any thing. This app only let's me scan my device not my SD card. I had another app that refreshes the SD card data, but this app doesn't. I will change my review when they change it up
Works flawlessly! Do try this if you are having problems with mediascanner in Kitkat. I had it in Nexus 5. Solved! Thanks a lot.
Only scans internal storage! No matter what directory I set this to scan, it always defaults back to scanning the internal DCIM folder instead. Useless.
Does what it says on the tin Tested Android 4.4.4 on Nexus 7
It works Scans SD, updates system database. Simple and effective.
Too many ads. In fact, you need to watch a full screen ad before the app does its thing...
Avoid completely I hope d developers are embarrassed dat they hav 2 live wid d fact dat dey created dis utter waste of space.
Sorted Does just what I was looking for on my Nexus 4, thanks.
Awesome!! Thank you for this app! I really needed it!
Doesn't scan for playlists The app scans for music files (I use .ogg files), but not playlists (I use .m3u files). Since I rely heavily on playlists, this makes the app unusable for me.
Not fully working This app does scan, but for some reason it scans my device, not the SD card. It would be great if you can fix this
Worked! This one seemed to work for me, some others I tried did not.
Great, but... Is there any way you could make this available as a Tasker plug in? I'd love to be able to call your app from Tasker to trigger a media rescan.
Take More than usual!!! It takes more time to update the media contents. Also I wish to have the option to run process in the background..
Painfully slow More than 3 seconds per file ON INTERNAL MEMORY. Multiply that times 4000 files on the phone. Ridiculous. Much faster rebooting the phone. Nexus 5.
Useful Solved my missing files issue, developer is helpful and responsive, thanks!
Force closed Force close when I tapped on rescan SD card
Please wait... I waited 10 minutes but after 10 minutes I gave up. I don't know if it's done when I can read please wait? BTW, it didn't work. I still can't see my added music files ?
Waste of time Pretty much locked up my S5, with continuous stream of "us not responding" messages. I hit wait until it was done, then uninstalled. Phone would not respond to lock screen while this crap ware was running.
Full of ads I respect developer time and I always buy apps or support ads, but on you appl first thing i saw was full screen ads, bottom ads, ads everywhere. I uninstalled 8 seconds after that. If you make something, do it with quality not only money in mind.
Doesn't work Typed path to a media directory on external SD card. No trailing slash. Nothing happens after clicking the button. S5. Lollipop.
Fixed issue Managed to get my photos and music to display in Gallery and music player after the folders and files randomly stopped displaying despite still being on my phone
Really works!!! Been looking for apps that could recognize sd card music and videos. Guess i don't need other apps, just used this app to fix the issue. Thanks!
Loved it! This app honestly worked for me. I had copied some songs onto my sd card but it did not show up on the music player. After this app re scanned my sd card, I found all my music on the music player. A big thanks to the developers!
This one worked ! I have tried a few Apps claiming to rescan the SD card, and this one worked! After the progress bar reached 100% there was still a lag of a few minutes while Android rearranged itself but eventually the extra folders appeared in the photo gallery. Thanks! I've not awarded 5 stars since, despite the name of the App, it defaulted to proposing to scan the device memory. However, it allowed me to navigate to the SD card.
Not nice Its not showing the result..
Thanks for this useful utility Could not see photos from Samsung gallery after copying files to new sd card. Tried many recommendations from web and other scan programs, but did not work. But Samsung gallery displayed the sdcard photos after using this program. Five stars.
Best. Very good. It fixed my issues.
Yesss!!!! This app did exactly what I needed it to! Somehow a ".nomedia" file was placed on the root of my SDCard and as a result all of my music files no longer showed in my Music Player and my images no longer showed in the Gallery. I found this App from a link on forum. Downloaded it, fired it up, started a scan, and within a few minutes all of my media files were showing up again. Kudos to Jared of Burrows Apps!
I don't usually give reviews, but I'm beyond happy right now. I spent months looking for exactly this app. Google Play Music wouldn't update unless I had restarted my Nexus 5. Know it all works like a charm with the press of a button. Thank You!
Images on SD card didn't show in gallery....Now its solved....Thanks admin
Its not fixing my prb
So happy Wow does what it says
It won't work. None of my media is showing up where it's supposed to. My songs won't show in the music player and all the pictures I saved from pinterest and other apps used to show up in my gallery but they stopped, and so I tried this app. But it didn't work for the pictures either
Crashes Every time I pic a folder, it crashes the app when it scans.
Great Just an amazing app .... It solved my problem in only 2 minutes Keep it up
Works with OPO and Nougat Only app that worked! Thanks!
