    hello Geeks
    Is there any way to set my fav ringtones to Alarms, ringtones and notifications?
    i can't copy my songs to root of HTC like /system/audio/.....
    i made a folder structure in /sdcard/media/audio/alarms ,notifications, ringtones.
    and it didn't work. neither /sdcard/alarms, notifications, ringtones does...
    any idea??
    thanks in advance

    what i did was formatt my memory card, then installed ringdroid, it then in turn creates the folders that you need. I then took off ringdroid

    it sets up the folders for you and all you have to do is pop the tones in your appropriate folder
    ringdroid is a ringtone maker that you will find on the android market on your phone and is free
    once the folders are made i deleted ringdroid as sometimes it gets the tones all garbled

    the HTC hero comes with a ringtone make already open the song then menu and i believe click on set as ringtone and then the trimmer will come up to trim the song.

    I don't know if this goes for the Hero but on my Magic I simply put them on the card {not in any folder or anything}.

    You then download a free app off the market called Rings extended and now you can choose to set one of your MP3's as a ringtone :)

    I tried all that and found that the only thing that worked was ringdroid, yes you can set almost any ringtone for calls but not for messages

    I use aContacts as my contacts manager, and I tried to set a custom ringtone for a group - my tones were made by Ringdroid, but aContacts doesn't seem to see them. I see the file structure, but none of the tones I know it contains. :thinking:

    Can I create tones in different file types with Ringdroid?

    Thanks

    EDIT 31/10: It appears that aContacts doesn't like m4a (the default file type for Ringdroid) but does like Ogg Vorbis - so a converter on your PC like dbPowerAmp can be used against your mounted USB to convert it to ogg, and aContacts can then see it
