This might even challenge the hard-core techies...How do you block Android game files from adding themselves to your media players? For example, if you're using Moboplayer to view the pics and vids you've shot with your camera, and you have a game like Dragon's Lair that has hundreds of mini 3 mB vid clips on your device to play the game, when I try to view my personal videos, I have to filter through the 800 some odd game vid clips just to look at my home videos. To add insult to injury, if you use a backup like Verizon that backs up only your newest movies and pics, it also downloads these hundreds of vid clips as well as photos of the uniforms on a game like Home Run Battle.
Thanks for looking

Create a blank txt file and name it .nomedia The period is important... put that in the folders that contain the files you don't want to show up in the gallery or app... You may have to clear cache or data for the gallery or restart the phone to get it to work....
