Solution

When using document handler to copy or move files, Media Gallery will also get a notification about the new content.

Create a copy of the new file in a temporary folder, and then move it to the correct location with CDocumentHandler::SilentMoveL(). For example:

    TDataType nullType;
TInt ret = 0;
TRAPD( moveErr, ret = iDocHandler->SilentMoveL(
_L("C:\\test_tmp.jpg"),
_L("test.jpg"),
PathInfo::PhoneMemoryRootPath(),
nullType,
KEntryAttNormal ) );
