My SD card is 16GB formatted as VFAT. This card works fine in N900. On the Jolla it did take a few minutes before its content appeared in the Gallery and Media apps. But then after sometime it disappeared again.

I tried to remove the SD card and insert it again, which did not change anything. (Nothing appeared) I tried to reboot the phone with the SD card inserted, again nothing changed. But removing the SD card and rebooting, made the contents appear again.

As mentioned there I think it's a tracker issue, because from terminal/filemanager I can see the contents of the SD card. Is that the same in your case?

I'd say it's related. I've tried to take of TOH and and remove+reinsert SD card. That didn't help me. What worked was to remove SD card, reboot and reinsert. But yes, I could always see the SD contents in /run/user/100000/media/sdcard. SD card was mounted as accessible.

Now confirmed that this is a duplicate of https://together.jolla.com/question/7449/bug-media-player-cant-find-music-on-re-boot/ though maybe with a slight difference in the workaround. Please cast your vote on that instead :)
