Is it possible to hide media files from Android's media scanner?

Applied Models:

Answer:

By default, the Android system on TAS will scan all of the files on its hard drives. This will result in all supported media files in Android and QTS being displayed in Android's media library. You can create or upload a blank file named ".nomedia", and the folder you save it in will be skipped by Android's media scanner.

Please note: This method only hides files from the media scanner. They will still be accessible and visible by using file browsers.
