So, I have amassed quite a collection of music on my phone, which runs Android 4.1 (yes, I know this is old… the phone works better than many newer devices)… about 3300 odd tracks.
I also have 3 files that have been on the SD card (actually, on a previous card, and they've been migrated from card to card for the past 8 years or so) which I actually wish to use as ringtones. They're in MP3 format (in contrast to my music which is in Ogg/Vorbis format).
/sdcard0/musicis where my music is being kept.
/sdcard0/ringtonesis where my ringtones are being kept.
How do I exclude
/sdcard0/music from being "seen" by the ring-tone selection screens, whilst still permitting the files therein to be "seen" by media players? (Using features native to Android 4.1 please, NO THIRD PARTY APPLICATIONS. Due to this device's age, I do not have Google Play Store available. So this solution won't work for me as I can't install software from Google Play store.)

The solution there in the link, have you tried it?
No, because I specifically stated NO THIRD PARTY APPLICATIONS. I'm looking for a solution that uses the features shipped with Android 4.1.
Create a folder and place those files in it. In the same folder create
Kindly read the question again. That excludes the files from everything, media players included. I only want to exclude these files from notifications/ringtones. I have a media program that excludes the ring-tones from the playlist, that's a solved problem, and NOT what I asked about.
