    Does anyone know if its possible to transfer pictures and video to the device using HTCSync ?

    I can imagine in 6months time the back will become loose if I have to constantly remove this to access the memory card ......

    :thinking:

    Connect up the USB cable. Pull down the notification thing from the top. Select 'USB connected'. Select 'Mount' to mount the internal card from your PC. Copy over files.

    Another daft question....

    Does anyone know if you need to place custom mp3/wav files into certain directories on the microSD card for them to be visible in the notification menus?

    I remember seeing something in a forum that said you need to create a folder structure on a stock sd card.

    Four Directories :

    /sdcard/Alarms

    /sdcard/Notifications

    /sdcard/Ringtones

    /sdcard/UI

    Had a play around and saw some advice from xda-developer forums - enabled SD card notifications option in settings->sound and display, created following directories on sd card :

    Media/Audio/alarms
    Media/Audio/notifications
    Media/Audio/ringtones

    Files placed in notifications folder appeared in notifications - *.mp3, *.ogg and *.wav tested.

    May also need a reboot somewhere in there aswell !
