Media draining my battery

Hi to all :)

i have noticed that even with screen off and without using my Note 3, in the battery usage list 'media' is draining my battery. And the CPU total in this 'media list' doesn`t stop. I don`t know why, I am almost using the same programs that I was using with my Note 2.
I thought that was my Samsung fault so I brought a new one. Same story.
With screen off and only with my Wifi on, I am loosing more than 12% an hour. Any help ?
Thank you.

Hi

You can do this and see if it works :)

1) go into app manager
2)find media server
3)clear it then run a scan or copy all to pc
4)dump it back in to phone and reboot.

Yes, i have. And, if it matters, I have added a lot of pictures on my ExtSDcard recently . Could this be a cause?

Oh, i`m afrait it is :p .The thing with Note 3 is that it wants to display all your pictures, everything from Dropbox and also Google +. I suppose you have to many pictures and it can`t handle

Look, don`t worry , I think the phone is indexing your pictures, your media in fact . There is one step to follow : wait for the indexing to finish and then it will stop draining the battery. That`s all
