Hi guys .. I have a call recorder installed on my Desire Z, and the problem is that Google Music also pulls in the audio files contained within the folder in which the recorded calls are stored .. I want to avoid this by somehow telling Google Music to NOT list the audio files contained within that folder ..

Yes, I know a playlist would essentially solve my problem, but I sometimes choose the 'Shuffle All' option, which starts playing randomly from all the audio on my phone .. This is where the problem occurs, because Google Music often starts playing back those darn recorded calls :S

Add a blank file in folder named .nomedia
That folder will be excluded.
