    Does anyone know of a way to exclude folders from programs such as the music app, or tunewiki. I have some audio books i dont want the phone to see in the music folder, rather only in my audiobook player. both of the files are in mp3 format.

    use a different mp3 player, i use the app called mixzing and its amazing. It also lets you speficy what folders to look into, so you can ignore your audiobook folders for example.

    I am having no problems. I noticed a couple of the new skins I downloaded for Beautiful Widgets were showing up in my gallery. These skin directories were missing the .nomedia file and since I added it by copying and pasting from some other skin directory all is well.

    Try it with a dot in front of the name of the audio book folder (e.g. ".MyAudioBooks").

    On a Samsung Galaxy 2 I've tried adding the .nomedia file, renaming directories and files with a dot prefix and none has worked keeping the files out of the Music Player and Play Music aplications.

    The files are mp4 files produced by the phone recorder.

    Stock galleries and music player don't re-scan for media after be started.

    When you have changed a folder's name, try a re-scan app like SDRescan or reboot your phone.
