Mediaserver

I am having problems with my samsung S5. Its been playing up a bit. and using up the battery very quickly. I had problems with mediaserver being the main usage of my battery life before. so took a look at that and yes. there it was mediaserver at the top using the most battery life. I have googled it and it says it is a virus. does anyone know how i can stop this coming up all the time. last time i reset phone to factory settings and it was ok for a while. now its back in full force.

Could be corruption (or faulty) on the micro SD card forcing the mediaserver to get stuck in a loop scanning the card.

Easiest way to confirm is to reformat the micro SD and see if the problem persists. If it does, try a different micro SD and see if it persists. That will rule out corruption in the first example and then a faulty card in the second.

thanks drdee. I do not use an SD card. so its not that. i ended up resetting phone to factory settings. which i did before when it happened. now the mediaserver is at the bottom of my list. not top. just not sure why this happens. having read about it. seems a lot of people of this problem. my daughter says. buy an Iphone. haha.

Try clearing the cache partition next time it happens.
