I own a Samsung Galaxy R. Recently, I could not find any files in default music player after I installed PowerAMP. How do I bring back the files in the default music player? I've checked by uninstalling PowerAMP... that didn't help!

Just to make sure, there were files visible in the default music player before you installed PowerAMP? – THelper Oct 15 '12 at 7:11
Yes it was visible "THelper" – Addy Oct 28 '12 at 12:01

I sometimes have problems with the media indexer ("Media Storage" Service), then I just do the following to let it rescan and rebuild all media files on the phone:

  • Settings > Apps > All Apps > "Default music player" > Force stop, Clear data, Clear cache
  • Settings > Apps > ALl Apps > "Media Storage" > Force stop, Clear data, Clear cache
  • Reboot phone
  • Unlock your phone and wait 10-20 minutes, don't do anything, don't open your Music App, don't care if it locks again just let it be for at least 10-20 min.
