We used to insist that that go into /sdcard/media/Notifications but Vanquished showed me that inside or outside of media folder works.
The matching folders are /Ringtones and /Alarms btw.
I created a folder /sdcard/Notifications however I wasn't able to see any of those tones avialable to select for my incoming text notification. So I changed it to /sdcard/media/notifications and this appeared to work.
I didn't have any issues with /sdcard/ringtones, but the only time I saw Notifications is when I did /sdcard/media/notifications.
I just joined the 3VO world last Friday (coming from a rooted Hero with Gingerbread) I have always used one of the stock sounds for my email notification (so naturally I am trained to respond to that sound like Pavlov's dog) I have that sound as my default notification sound and it works just fine for my gmail account, however, for the other 3 popmail accounts I've added, it uses the default sound from the "HTC Sound Set" found under the personalization widget. I've tried to change it in the account settings for each email account, but the only choice there is to turn the sound on or off. I also tried to create a custom set to no avail (it appears you have to choose from the HTC hub of lame sounds) Anyone out there have an idea of how I might remedy this? Is there a way to create a custom sound set not from the lame choices HTC gives you? Or is there a way to modify the default set HTC provides? Thanks.
Apparently to change the default sound set you go into "Notification sound" under personalization and it lists all the various categories to change there. I never clicked on it since it showed the sound I had chosen right under the word "Notification sound" - why would I? Finally I did and it gives all the categories for email, message, calendar, etc. I can now relax knowing I don't have to train myself to hear a new sound for email. Hope this helps somebody else out there...
In case anyone else has this problem, if you go into the Mail program, then hit the Menu button, then More, Settings, Notification Settings, you have to have Notification Sound checked. Works fine now.
