    Hi, does anyone know how to do the above? I have a dedicated audiobook player, so I'd like my music player to ignore these files... any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Put a dot in front of the audiobook folder (e.g. ".MyAudioBooks").
    Then the stock media player will not see the audiobooks.

    EDIT: If you don't want change the folder name: Make a file named ".nomedia" and put it in the audiobook folder. Same effect :)

    EDIT2: If you use a file manager (e.g. EStrongs File Explorer) for the implementation, make sure the media player has indexed the changes at or in the audiobook folder.
    I use the free app SDRescan for that.
