Is there any way to stop an Archos 70 HDD model from scanning the multimedia library? I've put a file called .nomedia in my Music folder but it still insists on scanning it every reboot.
Without rooting the device, I don't believe it's possible - that said, it should only take a few seconds to run the scan as it will stop once it reads the .nomedia file
That's the problem - the scan isn't stopping when it reads the .nomedia file. This file is in the root of the Music folder but it's still scanning all of the subfolders in the Music folder.paulus3476 wrote:Without rooting the device, I don't believe it's possible - that said, it should only take a few seconds to run the scan as it will stop once it reads the .nomedia file
How could the scan be stopped if the device was rooted?
You would disable the mediascanner with Titanium backup - but as root is difficult with the Archos, .nomedia is the simplest way to go and should work. What would happen is that any media previously scanned into the library would dissappear - you would have an empty library. If this is what you want, then .nomedia should do it, make sure it is spelled correctly, go into settings and reset the media library.
There is a nomedia manager app i use from studiokuma.

I have it installed. When I open it it displays a blank screen. I thought maybe it only worked for SD cards (i.e. not HDDs)?viking wrote:There is a nomedia manager app i use from studiokuma.
