Then either sync the media back to the card, or copy it to the card, and try again. For good measure, it wouldn't hurt to do a hard reset before you put the media back on the card.
...that sounds like the best plan of action and it worked, pretty much. As it turns out, one of my video files just doesn't make the BB happy.
I'm still not certain just what the difference is whether you just copy videos to the media card via copy/paste through Windows Explorer or when you use that Roxio Media Manager that always asks if you would like to, "Convert the files for optimal Playback". But I just used Windows Explorer to remove them all and put them in a temporay folder on my desktop. I hard-booted the BB and checked it and the "Scanning" completed after a few seconds like it use to. Then I used the Roxio Media Manager to put the files back. I noticed that it got all the files converted and copied except for one. It worked on this one file for over five minutes so I cancelled that convert operation. When I disconnected and checked the BB, the scanning feature worked normal and my videos were accessable in the normal way. SO all is well minus that one video. And it wasn't that good anyway,
Thank you very much. And just out of curiosity and even though I think I remember reading about it somewhere, but what is the advantage of using that Roxio convert process?
