    On my galaxy s I have an external sd card which i put a bunch of songs on in a folder called music. When I open up the music player I see my songs but also sound files from various sound boards I have installed, as well as ring tones I have downloaded. How do I fix this so its just music?
    Thanks

    I believe you can stick a file called '.nomedia' into a folder to stop it from appearing in the music app. So that would be useful for the soundboards.

    Also, putting ringtones in a folder called 'ringtones' seems to keep them out of there too on my phone.

    I have my folders set as
    /media/audio/mp3s
    /media/audio/ringtones
    /media/audio/alarms
    /media/audio/notifications

    and it seems to keep everything in the right place.

    Same issue - a workaround is to create and add your music files to playlists and ignore the other junk.
