API 29 Mediastore Access

I think this is an Android 10 bug, so I’ve filed a report here: https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/147619577 (includes instructions for an emulator test case to reproduce it if that interests you). Please consider starring it to let the Android team know that it affects you.

From what I can tell, it only affects files on ‘external’ storage, like sdcards mounted on /storage/XXXX-XXXX

In the meantime, the only fix that some of my users were able to successfully apply is to move their music files to the internal storage (reboot and wait for the media scan to finish to be sure that MediaStore is up-to-date).
