    Hello, I install a call recorder app and his folder was added automatically to the music folders of my samsung s2 (android 4.1.2).
    How can I remove it so it wan't play my recorded call as part of my songs?

    Thanks

    Hi, Thanks. I found the solution.
    Create a file name ".nomedia" in the directory and it will not be scaned :)

    Thanks

    Good luck.
    Noticed the "." in the begining of the file name: .nomedia
    and take in mind you may have to restart the phone in order for the media scanner to run again and exclude those folders.
