    Welcome to the forums. I don't think you can. The music player is basically showing all .mp3 files which a call recording is.

    This is a common problem with apps that fail to put a .nomedia file in the directory where they save their audio files, so that they do not populate your music player's playlists etc. Sometimes contacting the app's developer and requesting they add the feature into the next build of their app helps, but not always.

    Here's a helpful guide that can walk you through a workaround...
    Hide Certain Files in Android Music Player (or Photo Gallery)

    And, until the developer does it, you can add the file yourself. Find the folder your auto call files are in and create a file named .nomedia (nothing to the left og the dot). Save it in that folder. If the files still show up, restart the phone (a normal restart), and they should stop showing up.

    (Denver's link is to a pretty old article. First, when you look at Media Storage in Application manager, there's a Clear cache button. Don't clear the data, clear the cache.

    Second, you'll be mounting the phone as MTP, not as Mass Storage (that's Gingerbread technology).

    Third, if you have an app that can create text files on the phone, use that (you don't have to put anything in the file - as long as there's a file named .nomedia in a folder, Media Scanner won't scan that folder (or any folders in it), so it won't find those files). If it names the file .nomedia.txt, or if it insists that you name the file (name it x.nomedia) - then use My Files to find the file, long-press it (it'll get a green check) press the menu key and Rename the file to .nomedia.

    please follow below instructions to avoid playing "acr recorded calls in play music".
    Go to ACR settings, click on General, then deactivate "Library".
    IMPORTANT: Now restart your phone and ACR calls won't show anymore in play music. Remember restarting phone is mandatory.
    Usually this works with most of the apps. I have already tried this with 2apps, "ACR CALLS" & "Voice Recorder".
    Thanks & Enjoy!
