walkman app not showing music files from sd card

I notice d   the walkman app is not displaying music files from my sd card. I Have a sandisk 16 gb class 10 card. It was preformatted and when i bought  it i simply inserted in my phone.

I tried clearing cache of walkman app and walkman widget And rebooted. But still no luck. Also  

Tried killing walkman process and then rebooted but no luck  again. (i read this on some other thread on this forum)

I can see all files from es file explorer and can play them using Poweramp. But walkman does not scans the files.

the other hand, mediaserver app is constantly running and eating a lot of battery.

Iam on 4.2.2 stock rom, unrooted.Screenshot_2013-07-23-21-14-15.png

Power consumed by media server
