    ive created the following folders on the sd card,

    alarm
    alarms
    media\audio\alarm
    media\audio\alarms

    i put an mp3 in each of these folders and it hasnt shown up.

    when i put an mp3 in the following folder i was instantly able to set it as my notification sound:

    media\audio\notification

    You may still need to copy every off your sdcard to your PC ..(backup)
    then .... Re-format SDCard to FAT32
    put all you files back on ....

    Then The directories that should work are ....

    /sdcard/alarms
    /sdcard/notifications
    /sdcard/ringtones
    /sdcard/ui

    if these dont work then possibly you can use :

    /sdcard/media/audio/alarms
    /sdcard/media/audio/notifications
    /sdcard/media/audio/ringtones
    /sdcard/media/audio/ui

    If that still doesn't work then time for Factory Reset

    You said that you put an mp3 into a folder called :

    media\audio\notification

    But i have never heard of that working because at the least it should be notifications (plural) as should alarms, and ringtones ... the only on that is singular is case is UI

    It is the User Interface .... you will almost never see this ... If EVER ...

    Just include for reference ... rooted users may have more use for playing with this directory on the phone as opposed to just adding a supplemental/addtional location on the sdcard ..

    Just for the record

    /sdcard/media/audio/alarms
    /sdcard/media/audio/notifications
    /sdcard/media/audio/ringtones
    /sdcard/media/audio/ui

    Works just fine for me with no re-formatting.

    Ringdroid can cut any mp3 then you have the option to set it as the alarm ringtone, really handy app
