    Hello!

    Having just moved from a Hero to the Desire today, I tried what I had already done on the Hero, that of creating '/media/audio/ringtones'

    I created an MP3 file and loaded it into the directory, but I cannot find how to get this item to show in the list to select in MENU/SETTINGS/SOUND/PHONE RINGTONE

    The phone was updated to 2.2 Froyo today, has something changed I have not found out about? Anyone else had this problem and aware of solution?

    Thank you in advance.

    Regards - Boilerhouse :thinking:

    I have Froyo and my ringtone is in the same folder and it works fine. I also have notifications and alarms setup too.

    Did you unplug the phone before trying to assign the ringer? If the phone is connected to the computer in disk drive mode, then the SD card will not be available, so the ringtone folder will not be available either as it's "locked" by the computer/USB interface. Once you unplug the phone, it will access the SD card and let you assign the ringer.

    If it's not connected, then something is wrong. Perhaps you misspelled the folder names, or the MP3 is an unsupported format, etc. Double check the folders and file.

    You can use the stock music player to set a mp3 as a ringtone,in the player find the tune you want then click menu > set as ringtone.

    If your in the android market try the app Ringdroid. Loads up all your songs and you can cut certain parts of the song you like as your ringtone :)

    Very useful on certain songs :)
