My Lightroom 6.0 doesn't find new photos added in a folder. I have imported photos from that same folder but now, after adding some new photos, Lightroom doesn't find them. All the images are jpgs.

I have this problem too. Only way to fix it is import some jpg files that are in à subdirectory and which I do not really want to import, then exit LR, open it again and try again to synchronize. Eventually it will work, but it may require several trials.

Dude, that's not going to happen.
unlike bridge or picasa LR does not scan for pics, it only knows the files imported.

That's what the command 'synchronize directory' was made for, Boaz.

Thanks Paul, you refer to this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAe5XdsMrEY 
True, but i referred to the fact that unless you ask for it specifically, it's not going to happen.
Perhaps works better on Macs, on PC, Win7, I never use it as it is buggy feature, thanks again for clarification. Cheers.
