    Hi,
    I have a Galaxy GT-15503T and I want to copy an .mp3 file to my text message notifications.

    I can't see anything in the manual and when I connect my mobile phone to PC I can't see any relevant folders

    Can somebody assist me please.

    Regards

    -On the SD card, make a folder called "Media."
    -Inside that folder, make another folder called "Audio."
    -Inside that folder, make three more folders called, "Ringtones," "Alarms," and "Notifications."

    Putting any compatible audio file within these folders will add that audio file to the available tones in each category, provided there are no OEM/carrier restrictions on your phone.

    Thanks for that, Is that with a straight connection via USB NOT USING Samsung Kies software?

    Your help greatly appreciated

    Regards

    Hi again

    Managed to create the folders in the root as soon as phone connected using UMS mode only.

    Thanks again

    It will show up in any list where you select notification tones. What are you trying to set the notification for? Check that app's notification settings.

    Specific folder structure doesn't matter. The folder names (Ringtones, Alarms, Notifications) do. I don't have an Audio folder under Media. People typically use this scheme because it's how \System is set up.

    You're correct. I do it for organizational purposes.
