    Great, just what I needed. Found some videos on my co-workers laptop the other day that I copied ;) haha. But seriously I was wondering how to. Thanks

    edit: they both show as being trials/limited to 5 pics or vids

    Don't buy any apps, just put the period in front of the folder name like mentioned above or to avoid even going into a file manager on the phone, just open Notepad (or similar on a mac or linux) and save a blank file as ".nomedia" (make sure when you save, change File Type to "All Files" instead of documents). Now drag that file into any folder and the gallery won't look there :D

    Note: don't right click and create a new document and try to rename it because it won't let you. You have to open notepad and file save then name it .nomedia and choose "All Files" then it will save. You can copy/paste this to any folders with "special" content ;)

    Pretty sure that works for music and videos as well but I've only tried it with pics so far

    Now I just need to find out how to keep album art out of the gallery :|

    All I can think of is embedding it into the mp3s which would take forever.

    i've always embedded the album art into each mp3 so i don't have this issue. it takes time but if you get a program called tag&rename it can be achieved very easily (just in a lot of time) :)

    Ok this worked and hid the files :icon_eek:. Now how do I view them or email them?
    I have kids who love to play with my new toy, but I still need to forward all my goodies to my friends when its my turn to play.

    Yeah, the problem with naming folders with .'s is, how do you find them in the future? Do you have to change the name and remove the .?
