    This is really a strange issue and to be honest, a screencap would better illustrate it but since this forum limits new users, too bad. You'll simply have to try and visualize it.

    On my SD card I have the following directory:

    In it let us say I have this file:

    It is important to understand that there is only that ONE file inside that folder.

    So now I go to:
    Settings > Sounds > Default Notifications

    There it has a list of native notification sounds and mine named notification01.mp3 is there as well. Great.

    Problem is that I have not one single file named notification01.mp3, but 4 of them! The first three are silent and the 4th is the one that works.


    It started out with just the one single file. Then for no apparent reason something like a tronic mitosis occured and then there were two, with the same name and everything. A few days later there were three and now there are four.It's the reverse of And Then There Were None!Does anyone know the problem and how to fix it?

    I actually have several files in the \media\audio\notifications directory and all of them have been multiplied. I only used the one single file here to better describe the issue.

    I had the same problem (with music files) but never figured out why it happened. I backed up everything to Kies and deleted all my music and just reloaded them. Very time consuming.
