    Is there any way to have the default ringtones NOT play when u randomize your music in the music player?? :thinking:
    It's really annoying listening to a good song and then having to listen to crappy ass ringers and things of the like...

    I don't have the problem you are stating. The only folder my music uses is from my SD card. You might confirm that you are using your SD card for songs.

    Now, if you have a problem with placing ringtones that you have made playing from your music folder on your SD card, that is the problem I had. To get around the problem of playing my custom ringtones on my list, I use the included ring tone trimmer to "trim" a song, but not actually trim it. This trimming places the song into the ringtone folder of the Evo. I then can delete the song from my music player list.

    I HATE this as well! Here's what I did to partially resolve it:

    Create a playlist and add ALL music, then individually remove songs from it. Tedious and annoying, I know, but what can you really do? HTC's player sucks, but searching for another player sucks even more when the stock one should do the job fine. I have yet to find a player that shows up on the lock screen like HTC's does.

    I have the same problem but it's with the files from the H.A.W.X game.

    Go to your friendly text editor on any computer, generate a blank file, save that file as .nomedia with no extentions (no file type), then transfer that file into any directory you want to block content from the media crawler in Android...

    I think it works for subdirectories too, I have it blocking a few things from popping up in the albums folder...

    This fix supposedly hides anything media, it almost makes it like a directory named with a . in front of it... Anything with a . in front of itself is invisible to Android crawler...

    There is a supposed "risk" to using the .nomedia method, but I myself have tried to replicate them and failed, so it's been safe for me so far... The risk is sometimes it deletes the content it is trying to mask... I had a link with quite a few people expressing the same thing even up to early 2010, not sure how that plays out now, but all methods of recreating the problem were tried out and my test directory withstood the test...
