    All my music albums are appearing in the gallery and i have hundreds of music albums !! (Didnt happen in my old samsung phone which was very latest too - A70) - And, i have confirmed its a one UI 2.0 thingy.

    I have songs with custom Albumarts embedded transferred from PC to Mobile.

    PS: Hiding each folder individually is too time taking for me as i have many albums.

    Are the album art images saved in each respective music album folder, or is there one folder with all of the album art images? Or when you say the album art is embedded, does that mean there aren't any discrete images files?

    Album art is embedded in the music files/tracks

    Does it also happen with other gallery apps, or only the stock gallery app?

    I understand that, but it may be worth testing a different gallery app to see if this issue is specific to the stock gallery app in One UI 2.0, or if it's a system-related issue that occurs with any gallery app.

    I think the problem is that the album art is actually embedded as part of the ID3 tag data for the music file, and is somehow being read the Gallery app. Adding a .nomedia file wouldn't be a good idea, since it would also prevent the music player app from seeing the music.

    Absolutely, i already made a text file ".nomedia" on my PC and transferred the albums back to my SD card on phone but still same issue.

    Next, if i try to create a blank album and rename it .nomedia, my computer says its not allowed. AND, if i make a .nomedia folder inside my album it has no effect.

    Since you strongly prefer to stick with the Samsung Gallery app, then send some feedback to Samsung about this issue, and maybe they'll address it in an update. Otherwise, I'm not sure what else to try, sorry!

    UPDATE: I transferred few albums today and to my surprise.

    Few albums appear in gallery and few doesnt !
    Now all album/tracks are embedded by same method by me, so what can be difference ?

    Please guide how to check Tag details so to pinpoint to a solution.
