... even thought it is in the sd card. Checked with the web browser (works as a file browser too :p ) and used the Sd card on a pc.

Clicking it in the web browser made it download -in downloads- It appeared on the media app and played fine. After deleting it from downloads the file is missing again -obviously-.

Is there a way to get the media app display it without having to use a terminal. It's the only file that the app does not display AFAI can tell.

I thought this had been fixed with but it's still there.

There are still some drawbacks regarding the support for micro sd card usage. Putting all flac files on music folder in internal memory of phone works fine and all files have been playable from there.

No problems here with FLAC on a 64GB card formatted as btrfs. I did copy the files using WLAN, so the files were actually written by the Jolla itself, which obviously triggered the tracker correctly. You might need to have the tracker to reindex the card. Some info in this question. But perhaps simply renaming / moving the folders around a bit, using a file manager on Jolla, might trigger the tracker as well.

I can see FLAC files in the media player from the micro SDXC card, without issue.

For info, I am using a 64GB SDXC card formatted using FAT32 (formatted in Ubuntu Disc tool).

I copied the files onto the card when it is outside the phone (in a card reader).

I have all my .flac files in a folder called 'music'.

Hope that helps.

Loaded a number of mp3 and FLAC files onto a 4gb FAT32 microSD card. The first time it worked without any problems. The second time I tried to change the card, I needed to restart the phone before the files showed up in the Media player.

If you want the files to show up asap without restarting the phone, you can also try entering 'tracker-control -es' in the terminal, if you have developer mode enabled.

(Nevermind, I just noticed the terminal part in the original post.)
