    Hi all,

    I'm dialing in my Droid 2, which is replacing my previous Blackberry Tour. I am importing all my audio files for ringtones, notifications, and alarms. I have done the following:


    • Connected my phone to my computer
    • Mounted my SD card
    • Created a Media folder on the card
    • Created an Audio sub-folder within Media
    • Created Ringtones, Notifications, Alarms, and MP3s folders within Audio
    My custom ringtones show up when I'm selecting them in Settings, and RingDroid also shows all of my files (currently placed in Ringtones and Notifications). However, if I go to my GMail app and settings, when I go to select a custom notification ringtone, only the ones that shipped with the Droid 2 show up. I also checked Settings, and no custom notification sounds come up.

    I'm sure it's just an issue of folder structure not being what my phone expects, but I haven't seen an answer to my question (though I've searched). If someone can help, I'd appreciate it.

    It may just be a file structure quirk. This is the official media setup for android:

    sdcard/notifications/
    sdcard/music/
    sdcard/ringtones/
    sdcard/video/

    Drag the appropriate .mp3 files into the respective folder.

    I'd say try this first and see if you still have problems.
