    So, I'm not a huge music buff but I decided to put some on my Evo to get the full effect and use of this phone. However, now that I've uploaded like 1000 songs I notice that there's alot of sound files from games I've downloaded and it is kinda irritating to finish a song and hear "your on the green!" (from that golf game) or "he's on your six" (from Hawx). I'm guessing this is a default folder that the games are saving sounds to but is there a way to fix this? Thanks.

    create a folder called ".nomedia" within the folder where the unwanted sounds are (most likely where the game installed its data) and media player will ignore the whole folder.

    Use Astro or another file browser to do this.

    Don't do it with windows. Windows gives you an error with naming a folder with a "." as the first character.


    If you do it in astro or another file browser in your phone, it will work.
