Question Notification sounds aren't working

Here's my dilemma. I saved my ringtones to my SD card and mounted it to my Eris the first week I bought my phone. They worked great under notifications and ringtones. As of last week my notification sounds wouldn't change when I chose a different sound and then it'd stay on the very first ringtone I chose. Now, the ringtones I've set for notifications won't work at all. I can hear them when I test them out, but after I set it as my current sound I won't hear it when I get a text message or anything. I know others are having this problem. Does it have to do with the update you think? Maybe Android 2.0 will fix it.....

I installed Ringdroid allowing me to edit my ringtones. Not sure if this step has anything to do with it, but it works therefore I'm not messing with it haha. Anyways, once you do that Ringdroid saves a file called media onto your SD card. Open it and then next should be audio, open that at there may or may not be a notification file and a ringtone file. If not simply create them. Afterward copy and paste your ringtones into the files you want to be ringtones and/or notifications. They will load up in their respectable places on your phone after you unmount the SD card. Edit in Ringdroid if you want to or not.

I'm having a similar problem. I can change my ringtone for calls, but I can't change the sound it makes when I receive a text message. I tried to change the "Notification sound", but it still makes the default sound whenever I receive a text. Any ideas?

Are you doing right? It's really easy.

To change messages notification sound, go to all applications -> messages -> hit menu -> settings -> under notification settings -> check notifications -> select sound. To add more notification options, trim any song you have and move it to the right folder.

To trim, go to your music -> dash lines -> find a song -> click on it to play -> hit menu -> set as ringtone -> trim -> set as ringtone (for temporary). It will save it under folder /sdcard/.ringtone trimmer.

To move, just use a file management program like astro or mount it and use your computer to folder /sdcard/media/audio/notifications.

Let me know if that works. As you explained, it doesn't work when you get a message, and I don't pay for texting so don't know about testing it for me.
