Look at the plugin, "Add from Server". I'm not sure if it works with 3.1 but
its worth checking out. It does work on 3.0.
Essentially, it copies stray image files into the WP upload system and
registers them so they are able to be managed by the Media Manager.

I'm not sure there is a way to get the media manager itself to scan through
the server and import image data. It would be a darned good enhancement for
a future release.
