Default How to make HTC Audio Manager to search only "My Music" Folder?

Hi all,
As obvious from the title, is there any tweaks available to make the HTC Audio Manager to search ONLY the My Music folder in the Storage Card? I have other applications which use lot of voice files, which are not actually music. So, the playlist on the Audio Manager is messed up. At the moment the audio manager searches all voice files in the Storage Card. Any input will be appreciated.
Cheers

Go with registry editor in HKLM\Software\HTC\AudioManager\Config\
And edit : "device_scan_path_path" and "device_scan_path_path_0"
Type : "\storage card\my documents\my music" or the path to your music on sd card.

Thanks. But it doesnt work. I tries soft resetting and also renaming the folder with voice files in it. AM was still clever to find the renamed folder on the SD card! Anything else???

Can a similar thing be done with Microsoft Windows Media Player?
It does the same thing as AudioManager when you let it add music on its own - puts every ringtone and system sound in there too - what a mess!
The only way I've found to avoid this is to never click "Update Library" - instead always use Media Plaer 11 on my PC to sync and orgainize songs and playlists.

I don't see similar registry settings in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer . . .
