    Anyone know how to have the gallery not scan every directory on the SD card. Right now it's showing anything that is an image anywhere.
    So I see folders with all my mp3 covers, all the cache for any installed app. It's a bit much and really annoying.

    found my own answer:

    make a blank file in notepad on your computer called ".nomedia"

    Do not include the quotes obviously. Save it as all files, and not as a text file.

    Now with your epic attached and mounted to your computer in mass storage mode, copy this file .nomedia to every directory you dont want scanned for pictures and music.

    Just switched from an HTC EVO to an EPIC. I must say this thread definately helped me out.

    Hi,
    Yes, that .nomedia zero-byte file blocked music as well as
    the jpg images in the music directories for the album art.
    Was nice to see something that kind of worked... but, I am looking to keep my album
    art out of the gallery... not block my music and album art from being seen by any application!
    thanks
    bob
