    Trouble in updating songs on Media Player since upgrading Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray to Ice Cream Sandwich

    Since upgrading my Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray to Ice Cream Sandwich, I am not able to update songs in Media Player. I have deleted some songs already on the Media Player and copied new songs to it. But it still shows the deleted songs and gives ‘song not found’ message while I click on it. How can I avoid this issue and update the song list?

    That is problem due to media library not updating on your phone an un-mount and re-mount of your Sd card will solve the problem for you. The problem actually occurs due to the fact that the files in the media library are kept in your Music player and while changing them actually doesn't change the list in your music player and by doing this it will change all the files.
    Hope it Helps.

    To update the Media List do the following--->

    1. Go to Settings----> Applications---> Manage Applications---> All Tab---> Music App---> Clear DATA. The media list will be updated.

    2. Go to Settings---> SD card and phone Storage---> Unmount SD card and Remount it. The Media scanning will start and the list will be updated.

    Looks like the Play list Thumbnails are still present in the device and thats the reason that you are getting this kind of error. In order to get rid of this error you need to clean all the data associated with the Player only then it will be solved.

    Menu --> Settings -->Applications --> Chose the player and clear all the data associated with it. After that connect the SD CARD to the computer and erase the data files associated with the Player.

    Looks like the SD CARD is not properly synchronized with the Mobile device, You can try few simple things and check whether the problem is solved, if the problem is not solved then you have to change the SD card.

    Clear the data associated with the Music Application, this will set the Music player fresh and you can make the player to remove all the data it has stored in it as playlist or thumbnails, can be done by Menu --> Settings --> Applications --> Manage Applications --> Choose the desired Application --> Clear all the associated data.

    Check the SD CARD error.

    Thanks a lot!!!. I had the exact same problem on my Xperia Neo (MT15i) after recent ICS update and your post worked for me too.

    Sadly, Sony official blog says to do a factory reset as the solution. What a funny solution it is....
