Default Samsung Kies

I recently got a Samsung Admire. On my older phones, I'd just send ringtones and wallpapers to my phone through my email. I'm not able to do that anymore (not even on my old phone. I guess my provider changed things).

My Admire has a 2gb microSD card. I've hooked it up to my PC (my phone) and I can access my phone but I have no idea where I'd add the pictures and ringtones to. I've installed the latest drivers and Samsung Kies but Kies always said there was a problem and it had to troubleshoot.. I did as it said but it didn't allow me to troubleshoot.

Is there any other program to use, or a way around this? Possibly doing it manually by going to Start - Computer - Access phone that way through storage.

I wish. That's what I'm wondering how to do. I can't take the SD card and plug it into my computer because it's just the micro one that came with the phone.

make a folder named media
then inside that folder make one named audio
inside that one make 2 folders "notifications" and "ringtones"
notifications are the ringtones for mail alerts txts, etc.
ringtones are for calls
u can use full mp3's or download the mp3 ringtone maker off the market to cut mp3's shorter.

you should see more ringtones in ur sound options to set ringtones.

cheers.

Thanks a ton. Quick question though, where would I make the folders at?
And if it isnt asking too much... is there any way I could add pictures I download from my phone to my SD card WITHOUT transferring them using my computer?

Pretty sure I am. I'm a noob to this stuff to be honest. It's my first android phone. Before this one I just had the basic Brew OS on my LG Beacon.

When I plug my phone into my computer, I go to the drop down menu and hit "USB Connected" then "Turn on USB storage".

pictures and audio are automatically stored in the SD card, thats how it does for me. you just have to look for them in the My Files app.
