    Question Ringtones showing in the Play Music App

    I am running ICS 4.0.4 on a Samsung GS3 on the Verizon USA network.

    The issue: I downloaded a ringtone and now it is showing up with all my mp3's (500 or so) in the Play Music App.

    What I need help with: I do not want the ring tone to show up in the Play Music App but I want to keep the ringtone because I use it to identify when my girlfriend calls.

    What I don't want to happen: I do not want the ringtone deleted because I still need it to function as a ringtone for one of my contacts.

    Help. I need a simple way to resolve this issue. Thanks.

    David

    I think you'll need to put the ringtone in the \media\ringtones folder.

    It's either

    \media\audio\ringtones

    or

    \media\ringtones

    If they are already in a seperate folder from your other music, put a .nomedia file in the directory and the music player will pass it over.

    To create a .nomedia file, open a blank text file in notepad and then save it as .nomedia with no .txt on the end.
