I have my music on the external SD card on my phone, and use FolderSync to automatically sync podcast files to the same SD card from my computer. There are .nomedia files in the podcast folders (they are synced from the computer), but not in the music folders. When I start SongBird, both music and podcast files show up. Why? What can I do to fix it?
If I wipe the media cache, SongBird shows no music and no podcasts. When I run rescan, it only says "Scanning /storage/sdcard0" (internal SD) but afterwards the media files on the external card (/storage/sdcard1) show up in SongBird.
I use DoggCatcher with virtual feeds (watched folders) to listen to podcasts.

.nomediafiles (file name beginning with a
.) in the podcast directories? Maybe also tried placing one in its top-level directory? The title of your question mentions
.mediafiles: not that you've made the same typo there.
/storage/sdcard1/Media/Podcast? That should work for all files and directories below it. I don't think the "depth" should be an issue here.
