This is correct. I have had people send my MMS messages with a picture and sound ... on my old feature phone I would open the message, see the picture, and hear the sound. On the Eris, I have to save the picture and the sound as seperate files ... so I dont get the same efect. AFAIK, there is no way to change this.

Are you using a .wav or a .mp3? I used .wav files for all my ring tones and notifications without any apps and have not had any problems at all.

It may ... but I can tell you from expirence that .wav files do work without issues as long as you put them in a folder named "notification"

i figured it out. i was changing the settings the wrong way. when you're in your messages, go to "menu", then "settings", then "select sound". if you've created a file through ringdroid and saved it as a notification sound, it'll be on the list

Not sure if it matters, but I have my folders under the folder media

On SD Card:

media
..alarms
..notifications
..ringtones

All subfolders are plural and all lowercase. Watch your spelling too

If this would work would the ringtones, notifications etc show up with all the other ringtones or do you have to get them in another place?? I did do a shutdown and still nothing. I think I will delete the folders and try again. I will try the lower case, right now first letter caps.

Yes. If you get the files properly named and placed, whatever sound you import will show up in the factory installed list of sounds.

Ok, I tried putting them in again lower case spelling correct and still nothing. Even tried the .. in front of them. Tried putting them in the media folder also. Could I still be doing something wrong?? I cannot for the life of me get them to show up. They are mp3 format..... Thanks all!

Don't use the .. as I had in my post, I just used them to show the 3 were subfolders under the media folder. Sorry for any confusion.

To select custom ringtones, notifications, or alarms:

Under Settings / Sound & display / Phone ringtone
or Settings / Sound & display / Notification sound

To set a custom alarm, go into Clock / Alarms / Set Alarm / Alarm sound


I use MP3 files. I'm not sure if there is a size restriction, but you should make ringtones not longer than 30 seconds, and notifications as short as needed.

I just noticed that apparently ringdroid has been sending all of the files I've made with it to a folder called audio inside of my media folder. Within the audio file, there are two more folders named notifications and ringtones. You may want to try setting it up that way and see if it gets you anywhere.

I put folders there also to try it, they show up under my music then and looks like I can set it as a ringtone but I cannot set it for certain contacts then. Nothing shows up under - Settings / Sound & display / Phone ringtone.

Mine are under media. I believe the main concern is the folder names "ringtones" and "notifications". They could probably be under and folder or even in the root directory. Android just looks for those folder anywhere in the folder tree ("alarms" too).

I got the 4 to work now that i have been trying. I think the problem was the dashes in the name and at the end it said ringtone. Once I removed the dashes and the word ringtone they all showed up! Man what a learning experience. Thank you everyone that helped!!

You mean the sound files hand like a .ringtone extention? Did you just have to change them to .mp3?

I smoke two joints before I smoke two joints, and then I smoke two more......
On a related note, 40 oz. to freedom is one of my favorite songs ever.

Back on topic..........The file name is really odd. I've never seen anything name files like that.

find them in a new folder called media which was created by ringdroid, the path to the created ringtones on the SD Card is media>audio>ringtones. I've since placed all my custom ringtones in said folder, now my custom ringtones show up with the htc/android ringtones.
did this, just placed ringtones from my computer in the folder and they show up in the right spot on the phone but when I set them as a ringtone or a notification they don't play when i get something, it's still the annoying tones that came with the phone. any ideas?

is there a way to customize the song that you selected for your ringtone. what i mean is, i bought a song off of amazon and selected that song as my ringtone. is it possible to customize which part of the song you can have play whenever someone calls you? you could do this with the iphone and i was wondering if you could do it with the droid eris as well.

when you are in your music player, hit menu, set as ringtone, then trim the ringtone, and you can pick whatever part of the song you want.

I just downloaded Ringdroid to my new HTC EVO, but whenever I use it to adjust a sound files, the playback is very distorted.

Also, if I want to unstinstall Ringdroid, how do I do it?

Go to the market, press menu, then downloads, then select the Ringdroid app, and uninstall.

Not sure where the Folder "Music" is located? Do I need to create on my SD card? First unmount, remove, create folder on SD Card while in computer, then re-mount in Droid? Guess I'm making this wayyy to hard. Help. Thanks.

What I did was --

Mount the SD card
In the root directory (top directory) create a folder titled media
Inside that folder I created 2 folders - audio and Music
All my music goes into the Music folder (sorted by album)
In the audio folder are 3 more folders - alarms, notifications, and ringtones. Sounds go into the appropriate folder(s)

Just moved the Music folder to the root directory of the card. Music app still finds it, so the answer is -

You can apparently put the music folder anywhere on the SD card

Just go get the Zedge app much easier to add then all the above answers

Default Notification sound not playing properly

I just when through the process of creating the ringtone, notification and alarm directories. I copied a .wav file into the notification directory. When I go back to my phone it finds the name of the .wav file, but does not play the correct content. I've confirmed the file has the right sound. It's playing one of the default notification sounds that came with the phone.

Suggestions?

I'm going to guess that .wav files don't work. They may have to be .ogg or .mp3.

WAV files actually work fine. I just use compressed MP3's more often since WAV takes up considerably more space.

Default Got Ringdroid, but tones mess up???

Hello,
I have a Droid Charge and have just dumped my Iphone after 3 years. I like the droid system! I figured out the ringtones, but when I use ringdroid to make a ringtone into a notification.....It comes out garbled. Any other way to get tones to notifications ....are they .wav or .ogg? Thanks in Advance!! Chigger!!

Default I figured it out from prior posts

THanks!!!
I figured it out. You don't even need ringdroid. You just make the appropriate folders like everyone said above....ie...media, music, notifications, etc. The notifications tones just need to be in the notification folder with capital Notification.mp3 at the end of your tones name. They show up fine. Just edit the names for example dogfightNotification.mp3 and voila! There they are!
Thank you to all the prior posts for the help. It took about 10 different people to glean all of the needed info! This forum is EXCELLENTE!!!
