How to disable Media Scan for SD Card on LG P990

Gallery in Android phones display all the images, videos present on your phone memory as well as from all mounted SD Cards. If your SD card is full of music containing album arts you will wish not displaying the album art images in the gallery. You can do that with a simple trick. 

If you want that gallery or media service should not scan a particular folder for media contents simply create a file with name ".nomedia" in that folder and you are done. The content of that folder will not be searched and displayed in gallery or in video list.  Same thing applies for you SD card as well. If you make a file with name ".nomedia" on the root of the SD card the SD card will not be searched for any media contents.

When you want the file should be searchable remove the ".nomedia" file.  
This trick may work on all android devices.
