    I've had my Droid since November and I guess I went into autopilot since because I never had a problem doing this. But now that I had to replace my phone, I no longer know how to set any 'ole mp3 file as a notification or ringtone in other programs.

    For example, I used to be able to go into the messaging or Google Voice app and from there choose the "select ringtone" and then be given a list of apps I had that let me browse through ALL of my mp3 files. Now when I choose "select ringtone," I'm only able to access the system ringtones and notifications.

    So what app do I need to download that'll enable me to browse through all audio files for any app's notifications and ringtones? Thanks.

    On your sd card there should be these folders: sdcard/media/audio/ringtones and sdcard/media/audio/notifications. If there isn't, create them. Put the sound files in the appropriate folders and they should be included on the list of ringtones/notifications when selecting.

    Thanks for the tip, but I'm looking for something that doesn't require having to load up sounds into a particular folder. From what I remember, I used to be given an option to use a number of programs that let me choose any mp3 from any location as my ringtone. Since having my first Droid crap out on me, the program landscape has changed and I can't remember which apps allowed me to do this.

    For anybody interested, I finally found the app that enabled me to do what I needed. It's called Rings Extended and with it, you can apply any sound file as any notification or ringtone.

    Just my two cents, but "Zedge" is my app of choice for this task. :cool:

    While I like Zedge's system, that app only allows access to files downloaded from that app and not from files downloaded from other apps or already on the phone.
