Android studio compile error "Content is not allowed in prolog"

I use latest Android Studio 0.8.4 (for OS X), in "res" directory I create new "database" directory and put there all files what I need and when I try to compile I receive this error.

Error:Content is not allowed in prolog.
:app:mergeDebugResources FAILED
/Users/filipp/data/Android_dev/project/app/src/main/res/database/5clSubject0Book0.txt
Error:Error: Content is not allowed in prolog.
Error:Execution failed for task ':app:mergeDebugResources'.
> /Users/filipp/data/Android_dev/project/app/src/main/res/database/5clSubject0Book0.txt:0:0: Error: Content is not allowed in prolog.
Information:BUILD FAILED


Please help.

Answer

in "res" directory I create new "database" directory

That is not supported. You cannot invent new resource directories.

Please put the files in res/raw/ (and use via getResources().openRawResource()) or assets/ (and use via getAssets().open()).
