    Back up all the data in the phone including contacts, media files etc. Fully charge the handset. Go to Settings and select Backup & Reset. Now tap Factory data reset. Once you factory reset the phone, all data will be gone including the apps downloaded from Google Play. Check the 'Erase SD card" box and tap 'Reset phone'. After reset, reboot the phone once more. Restore backup and the issue will be resolved.

    Friend as you said that your media player isn't working properly after updated Gingerbread to ICS version, it is due to sometime system files of OS is not properly update and will cause this type of issue, so you can again reinstall the OS and then check the issue, it is working or not.

    -------------------------------
    Else you can follow below steps:-
    ------------------------------


    :: Kill the email app

    :: And then run the media player app again

    :: Check it function, is working or not

    -------------------------------
    Otherwise perform a Soft Reset:
    ------------------------------

    :: Go to home screen by pressing the menu button.

    :: Then tap on "settings" on your device.

    :: After that select and open the “SD & Phone Storage” option after the settings.

    :: Now hit on “factory data reset” which is located at the bottom part.

    :: Then hit on “Reset Phone” so that you will finalize the "Factory Reset".

    hey friend...

    The problem you are saying is actually not a problem as it can happen with anyone or in anyone's phone ...
    What the problem is that you have not refreshed your music player's songs list or what you say library...

    Refreshing of music player library is needed when you add a new song from pc to your phone or , via bluetooth to your phone or else you can say that when a song is added into your phone from any means then then there is a need to refresh your phone's music library ..
    Also it is needed if you have deleted any song from your phone and hence you need to update your music library then you have refresh the list ...

    So , just open your music player and go to options ..
    There you will see the option as refresh library .. just refresh it and then everything will be alright for you..

    thanks
