I have recently installed Ubuntu and have removed any trace of Windows from my PC. I haven't formatted my partitions to ext though because I don't have a spare drive to take backups.

My problem is that when I am copying new music files to my NTFS partitions, they are not showing up in any of the Music players (Clementine and gmusicbrowser) even after repeated scans though I can play them when I manually go to the directory and play them using VLC. I am even unable to add them to the play list of the music players by drag-drop.

Can someone tell me what's the problem here and how can I debug it?
