MediaScanner ServiceConnectionLeaked

I use this class to scan my app image in SDCard.

public class SingleMediaScanner implements MediaScannerConnectionClient {

private MediaScannerConnection mMs;
private File mFile;

public SingleMediaScanner(Context context, File f) {
mFile = f;
mMs = new MediaScannerConnection(context, this);
mMs.connect();
}

@Override
public void onMediaScannerConnected() {
mMs.scanFile(mFile.getAbsolutePath(), null);
}

@Override
public void onScanCompleted(String path, Uri uri) {
mMs.disconnect();
}
}


It worked but in my LogCat it always shown an error:

What is the problem? Thanks.

Answer

For scanning a single file, or scanning a file from a context in which you can't bind to a service (e.g., from a BroadcastReceiver), user430926's comment deserves to be a separate answer:

Uri contentUri = Uri.fromFile(file);
Intent mediaScanIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_MEDIA_SCANNER_SCAN_FILE); 
mediaScanIntent.setData(contentUri);
sendBroadcast(mediaScanIntent);
