    I really love the Droid, but there are really some things that suck on it. The Stock email client via "imap" is a piece of crap and the music player is a piece of crap. The ability to kill an application also bites. I know there's free apps that offer that functionality, but jeeze, why on the stock apps is there not an ability to "kill" to save memory. I'm just venting sorry.

    I had an issue a while back when I deleted a video from my media card, the video will still show up in the video player list no matter how many times I tried to do a media scan.

    The only way I got rid of it was going into Settings | Applications | Manage Applications, tap on All, then Media Storage, and then tap on Clear data.

    FreezyFreaky, you are da' person! That worked! Thank you!

    Nissmo66, I don't think they want it after it mounts because I'm sure it's a caching index, but certainly that routine should run after formatting.

    Glad that fixed it!!

    BTW, it seems like this only happens if you delete media files directly from the SD card. Deleting using the apps seems ok.

    - To add to this, the duplicate problem can occur if you are using an app to move files as well. I used ES file explorer to cut/paste my music library within the SD and the whole lot got duplicated in my media player.

    The solution works great either way. Thnx!

    I FOUND A SOLUTION
    i have the exact same problem with my samsung galaxy 3s, with the software 4.1.2. the playlists content disapears all the time.
    what helped on my phone was to make a backup on your pc, from the phones and SD-cards memory, then format your phone (both phone card) PROBLEM FIXED. I know it takes some time to restore everything, i recommend that you install "backup and restore" and "playlist backup" on your phone and make a backup on your apps and playlist. good luck

    PS. install only the apps that you need (it could be an app that did made the bug)
    PPS. if you can use another music player than the default one, that could also prevent the bug, i am using "Now Playing"
