    Hey all - couldn't find this but looking for help...

    Anyone know how to (or know of an app) that will allow me to remove some of the folders from appearing when I open albums? Currently when I open the Albums it shows all pictures, artwork from apps etc....

    Thanks for any help...

    Thanks Caddyman. There are dozens of albums recognized and I have no idea where they are located. Any help to find them?

    Thanks!

    You can download ASTRO file manager and instead of adding a text file into the folder, you can simply rename the folder with a (.) period in front of the folder name. This will make the folder invisible to your albums. The (.) simply hides the folder. In ASTRO, you have to go into settings and select to "show hidden files" so if you want to switch back, you just rename the file by removing the (.).

    With ASTRO you will be able to find all of those album folders with no problem. It's a great app.
