N8 Add MP3s for Ringtone But Not Show In Music Library

Hi All, Lifetime Nokia fan but struggling to get my head around some N8 funnies:

 

I have some MP3s that I want to use as ringtones. However, I don't want them to show in my Music Library (if I'm listening on shuffle I don't want these sound clips to play in the middle of them). I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how this might be achieved? I've tried all different directories and transfer methods but can't work it out...

 

Many thanks

Put them in sounds/simple on E: or C:. Music player won't pick them up when you refresh library.

krisq,

 

That got it!


When you add mp3s to e:/sounds/simple then they show in the ringtones selection menu (in the songs folder and subfolders), but do not show in Music Library.

 

Thanks very much! Now to get around to my album art issues... :-S

What issues do you have? I'm using TagScanner for embedding album art in my mp3s. They show up on N8 perfectly after refresh.
