    Howdy all,

    Ok I am getting really bent trying to figure out how to save a mp3 as a ring tone. Had a friend text and email me a cool ring tone to my phone which I clicked on save to sd card. Now once I save it and even download it I can never find it on my phone. I even went to the net and found this same ring tone and downloaded it and aved it to the sd card but of course I can't find it anywhere on my phone. I can never find crap when I save to my sd card there is no where on my phone I can go to and look at stuff that I down loaded to the sd card!!!

    I would really like to learn how to find crap that I save to my sd card and then use it as a ring tone......please any help!!!!

    Ringdroid is great for making ringtones. You can use the "show all audio files" option and it should see the file. Then you can use it to assign it as a ringtone or even chop out a section of the song to use.

    Another method is to download the app "Ringdroid" from the Android Market. This will list all the media files currently on your SD card. You can then open any one of them, edit the start and end points for your ring tone, and save the excerpt as a ringtone, alarm sound, or notification sound. Couldn't be easier! Oh, and if your MP3 file isn't shown, it probably means that Android hasn't scanned the SD card for new media files since you stored it - if that's the case, download an app called SDrescan which will force the SD scan.

    If you can see the MP3 in the default music program, long press it. An option will come up to use file as a ringtone.

    Or Rings Extended if you don't need to edit the ringtones.

    Create a folder on your SD card called Media. Then in that folder one called audio, then in that folder 3 other folders called alarms, ringtones, notifications.

    root
    -- Media
    --audio
    -- alarms
    -- ringtones
    -- notifications

    I'm sure you can figure out what goes in each directory. Now when you edit a contact any ringtones in that folder will show up in the list.

    If your phone is connected to the computer and the card is mounted, unmount the card.
