    Hi all,

    I copied over a whole bunch of comic book scans to my cell phone so I can read them while I'm on the train/plane, and unfortunately, when I open up my "Gallery" all the volumes/chapters show up on my root directory, instead of staying nested within my "comic" folder. Is there any way to keep folders nested so I can click on that "comic" folder, and then it'll show me all my comic folders/chapters, instead of having everything at the root? Thanks!

    Two ways that I know of. First you could name any file or folder you don't want to show up with a . at the beginning (ex: Change "ringtones" to ".ringtones"). Or you could create a new file in that folder and call it ".nomedia".
