    hi all. i put loads music on my sd card, the phone found them no problem. i set 3 folders for alarm,notification and ringtone, but when i go through the phone sound setting to change them, it doesnt come up on the list , just the preset/preloaded tones. what am i doing wrong? do the folders need to be put in a certain place, or what. thanks guys.:)

    This works for me:

    /sdcard/media/mp3/ringtones
    /sdcard/media/mp3/alarms
    /sdcard/media/mp3/notifications
    /sdcard/media/mp3/music

    I don't think the location matters, only the name. I guess the format of the files could be causing a problem too.

    Put an "s" at the end of the folder names so it is alarms and not alarm. Also make sure they are all lowercase.

    I think you're correct, because

    /sdcard/audio/ringtones
    /sdcard/audio/alarms
    /sdcard/audio/notifications

    works fine for me. :)
