Handler loses message after wait() and notify()

 Hey Guys!

I have a problem handling messages in a Thread. My run-method looks
like this

public void run() {
   parserHandler = new Handler {
      public void handleMessage(Message msg) {
         Log.i("","id from message: "+msg.getData.getString("id"));
         // further message handling

I have several Activities sending messages to this thread, like this:

Message parserMessage = new Message();
Bundle data = new Bundle();
data.putString("id", realId);
data.putString("callingClass", "CategoryList");

parserHandler = parser.getParserHandler();

synchronized (parserHandler) {
    Log.i("","message ID:  " +


The problem is that the run-method logs "id from message: null" though
"message ID" has a value in the Log-statement. Why does the message
"lose" it's data when being send to the thread? Has it something to do
with the notify? Thanks for your help

2. Bug in the MediaStore Content Provider ?


My mp3 application is using the MediaStore content provider and I
noticed strange behaviour that is even reproducible on the native
android mp3 player.

1) Start emulator with SD card and some songs already on it
2) Start native mp3 player
3) See the songs that you have
4) Now push a new song to the SDC card
5) Restart the native MP3 player

Result: The new song is not visible. If I restart the emulator then
the song will be visible

Expected Result : The new song should be visible and accesible from
the conent provider after after it has been added to sdcard.

I first of all reproduced on my application, but I see that it also
effects the native player which must be using the MediaStore content
provider aswel.

This behaviour looks like a bug to me ?

I am using 1.5r2 of the SDK

Thanks !
