    Since a few days I am having severe issues with anything that's on the (internal) SD card on my Nexus S.

    When I mount my phone into a computer, all is fine. Everything is recognized, and files are where they should be. Also file browser apps on my phone recognize everything, and I can play music when I tap the files individually.

    But music apps will not recognize any music anymore. Both the stock player and Winamp don't see any music.

    Also, my Gallery app crashes when I tap any album, and it shows a wrong number of pictures. However, I can access my photo album by using the Camera app (since Jelly Bean it's possible to go straight into the gallery app with the camera app), so that's a possible workaround.

    What's even more strange is that when I go to settings-->storage, it will nicely tell me there's 4GB of pictures and 3GB of music on my (internal) SD card. So it does see there there is something.

    I've already tried rebooting a few times, to no avail.

    Hello, the photo galary and music player of my nexus s does not recognize media files moved from my computer, but the music player shows and plays songs if they were downloaded directly from internet.
    My service provider suggested me to call samgsung but i haven't try that yet. Have you solved the problem by any chance?

    to play undetected music: Music Folder Player
    to view undetected photo: QuickPic

    I've tried reboot my nexus s, rescan the sd, non of them worked, finally found the above apps (both are free) to replace photo gallery and music player. The only complaint is my lyric app doesn't sync with music folder player
