    Not sure if you tried this, but you have to create a media folder on your sd card. Inside of that folder, make two subfolders: one for audio, and one for video. Go into the audio subfile, and make othe subfiles within that: alarms, music, notifications, and ringtones. Store your Zedge files within these files. That should do it.

    Oh, and your phone will only be able to access the sound when it is not mounted. So, if you have your USB cable connected for charging or synching, make sure to unmount after you are done, or the selected Zedge tone won't work.

    Not sure about that. I just downloaded a couple of ringtones/notifications. I didn't get a full program. That might require a different solution.

    Notice the file structure for the ringtones/notifications as I mentioned above. Then, I just selected the tone within the regular application, which now shows these added tones as choices from the list.

    Also, don't forget to have the phone unmounted when you are selecting the tone, or it won't show up on your choices.

    My wife has the Zedge app on her Epic as do I on my HTC. We don't have any problem downloading ringtones and using them for what ever item we want to set them as. When we go to settings, sound and display, and choose the item we want to change. The phone asks witch to use, Zedge or Android system. Either one works. I have read in the forums over the last year about my HTC, some people have this problem and others don't. I have found that it is usually small things. Was the phone pluged in to a computer? How are your settings set up? Do you have your phone set to accept 3rd party apps? Those are the things I would look at. I set up my wife's just like mine.
