Default Can't locate music files

Hi,

I'm trying to add mp3 files to my new Hero to use as a ringtone. I followed the instructions here > HTC Hero - Copying Photos and Music to Your Phone to add the files but they just don't show.

I then tried to follow the instructions here > http://androidforums.com/htc-hero/20511-htc-hero-tips-tricks-useful-apps-v1-6-a.html

But i can't seem to be able to find these folders:

Ringtones: /sdcard/media/audio/ringtones
SMS Alerts: /sdcard/media/audio/notifications
Alarm Alerts: /sdcard/media/audio/alarms

Thanks!

Have you created these folders?

On the sdcard create (if not already there) /media/audio then within the audio file create your other files like ringtones etc
