Copy your ringtones files to the PhoneMemory at
\system\media\audio\ringtones

These files should now be listed in your list of ringtones.

Other than these, you may try installing some market app and set them as alert tones.

Whenever I try to paste an mp3 file in that ringtones directory using root explorer, it gives me a message saying the file (folder) is read only.

Before pasting the mp3 file,mount ringtone directory as r/w mode (read and writable) by pressing the button on the right corner on the screen.

Cool DOne This..

Follow this procedure... Its working

Create a new folder in /sdcard/Media as 'Notifications' paste the mp3 file in this...

Reboot your mobile... remove the battery and keep aside for few seconds.. and switch it on...

You will now see the MP3 file in Message Tones..

No need to root your phone. You just have to have the specific folder for each type of sound.

Go to "Menu",click on "My files", and within the sdcard, create a folder named "Sounds"

/sdcard/Sounds

1. For Alarms, create a folder named "Alarms" within that directory. Copy/move here the sounds you want as your alarm.
2. Likewise for Ringtones, create a folder named 'Ringtones", and copy/move here your preferred music
3. Lastly, for Notifications, create a folder named "Notifications", and copy/move here your preferred notification sound

So, basically, within your sdcard, you have these directories:

sdcard/Sounds/Alarms
sdcard/Sounds/Ringtones
sdcard/Sounds/Notifications

When you choose ringtone for phone/notifications in your Settings, the music you included in those directories should appear.

For Alarms, go to Clock, Add alarm, and then there's an option to change the alarm Ringtone there.

An alternate and easy way is to go to the audio file, click options and set it as your ring tone "temporarily" it will now always show in the list of ringtones unless you move or delete the file. You can now set your ringtone back to your preferred choice and access the audio file to use on other things such as your alarm etc.
