 There is no mp3 encoder included in Android currently, so you can't
record to mp3.

1. Cannot view saved image until reboot

Hey all,

I am saving an image taken by the camera to a unique folder on the
sdcard.  The image saves fine, but I cannot view it in the Gallery.  I
can see it in the file system, but I cannot view the image in the
Gallery app until I reboot the phone or mount the sdcard, and then

Here's the code:

     public static void saveImageToCard (Bitmap bm, String title,
String description, Context context) {

            //replace and append the title with the correct extension
            title = title.replace(" ", "_") + ".jpg";

            File Directory = new File(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory
() + "/myFolder");
                File file = new File(Directory.getAbsoluteFile() + "/" + title);

                if (!Directory.exists()) {

                try {
                        FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(file);
                        bm.compress(Bitmap.CompressFormat.JPEG, 100, fos);
                } catch (IOException e) {


As I said, the file is saved fine, I can see it in the FS, and I can
view it after the card has been umounted/mounted or rebooted.   Is it
an issue that I'm not correctly closing the file??  I don't think
that's it, but I'm not sure why I can't view the image.  I believe I
tried saving the file using getContentResolver().insert() and didn't
have this issue, but I want to save the images to a specific folder
that I create.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
