Hi,
Thank You.

Can you also confirm that it asks for Check on devices that only have Internal Storage?

I personally think that on device reboot Internal Storage mounting should be postponed each time. Thoughts?
I physically removed the SD card and rebooted and yes, it still asked to Check/Postpone (I guess this must be for internal storage). The notification wording could be a bit confusing as it says "New storage mounted. Do you want to check for new/changed media?" - it might confuse some users to refer to internal memory as "new storage"?

My own preference would be to have scanning postponed by default for all media. Or at least make it an option in settings. Maybe I don't really understand the process but I only ever add music to my device via MM sync so I'm not sure I would ever need to have scanning enabled. Is it because some users add music to their device from sources other than MM?

Actually, now I've played about with it a bit more I think there is still a problem. After a reboot you can get the Android notification to disappear by selecting 'Postpone' but it looks like the scan (or some other operation) is still happening in the background.

I rebooted and selected 'Postpone' but when I opened MMA on my phone there was still the spinning circle icon in the top right and that has lasted for over an hour (like before). During this time it's not possible to do a wifi sync in MMA and it says "Connecting to W-fi network. Please wait" with a spinning circle. It's been over an hour now so and it still says this so it looks like you have to wait for just as long as before and the scan has finished before it will allow you to do a wifi sync and update the library.

I have all my music on SD card and this notification appears after reboot. Is there not a way to disable to process or notification? As it is now you still have to take a step on every restart.

This should be fixed in MMA 1.3.5.863+ (currently available as a beta on the Play store).
Can you confirm that it works for you?

Thanks.

-Rusty
