    Alright, I've looked around but haven't ever found anything concrete for this. Is there a way to keep my ringtones/notifications off of my default music player? I tried adding a text document called .nomedia as I'd read in a different post with no luck.

    Any ideas?

    I have a vibrant, and I created folders on the sd card called "notifications" and "ringtones" so I could download straight to there. The tones then show up on the stock list.

    With Astro, or while connected to a pc, create a file named ".nomedia" without the quotes in whatever folder you dont want to show up.

    And FYI, do a search next time, this has been answered MANY times.

    I did search and I tried that and it didn't work, thanks for reading though.

    Your supposed to put ringtones under the /media/audio/ringtones directory on your SD card. Those are ignored by the music player.

    That's odd, that's exactly where they are but they still show up. Heck, one or two of them show up twice and I have no clue how that happened.
