    Default How to Separate files in music library?

    can i separate my music and other mp3 files (lets just say its some kind of junk files i cant remove) in the default music player in android?

    Welcome to Android Central! If you put the non-music mp3s in a separate folder, you could create a blank file titled ".nomedia" (using any file manager app--make sure you include that period) in that folder, which instructs the system's Media Scanner to ignore that folder.

    Why can't you remove them? Have you tried using a file explorer to delete the junk?
