    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 >

    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

    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

    I have put a folder called MP3's on my SD Card and then within that folder albums in their own folders i.e. /mp3/meatloaf-bon jovi etc :)

    Hi, Yes tried that too. Ive tried a number of .mp3 files too just incase something is corrupted. But still no joy!

    Thanks for your help so far!

    hmm just installed TuneWiki and the files show in that, so maybe a problem with the default player?
