    Hello All,

    It's my 2nd day using Android device, so be patient in case it's already a common knowledge - haven't found the answer anywhere yet.
    I have copied some music albums to the MicroSD card, and they contained some cover art - as jpegs - now, when I open my "Galerry" app, it's trashed with all the album covers - looks horrible.
    Is there any way of excluding certain paths from scanning?

    I have read about creating a file named ".nomedia" that prevents the dir from being scanned, but I don't mind my mp3s being found, so I don't like that approach. Also, some said that their media disappeared completely after creating the file... :thinking: :rolleyes:

    Any idaes?

    You could use an other gallery app for your pictures, e.g. QuickPic.
    With this app you can exclude folder from showing pictures.
    Your mp3s wouldn't affected :)

    OK, thanks,
    I am really satisfied with the default gallery app, apart from the unnecessary dirs. I have manually deleted all graphics files, and now it's better ;)
    Hopefully, they'll fix it in the future.
