    Hey there! Anyone who can help, I'd love you forever!

    I'm trying to set some mp3s as a 1)Ringtone and 2)Notification. Here's how far I've gotten:

    1. I mounted my Hero to my computer.
    2. I have the media folder with the files of RINGTONES, NOTIFICATIONS.
    3. I have the mp3s that I want, in EACH folder.
    4. Unmounted the Hero.

    Now I'm lost, because I went to my settings to set a default ringtone for my phone calls, and they are not showing up. The only ones showing up are the ones that came with the phone. The same thing is happening for my notifications.

    I'm pretty illiterate when it comes to this kind of stuff, so if there is anyone out there with the patience to help me out step-by-step, please HELP! :?

    name all your folders all in lower case

    media>audio>ringtones
    media>audio>notifications
    media>audio>alarms

    once you have put your songs into these folders restart your phone and voila :) Hope this clears a few things for you...

    Play the track you want to use on the default music player. Whilst playing hit the menu button and then choose set as ringtone. I think it works with other music player too - it does with MixZing for example.

    Peter- I did figure out how to do that, but the ringtones I want aren't in my music player. I downloaded the mp3 from a website, for example, the intro to the tv show Heroes is what I had as my notification tone before, and I also had the theme song for the tv show Dexter as my ringtone. So, I downloaded them from an alternative site, and I was just trying to put them in my folders like everyone else has been doing, but they just weren't coming up.

    Griever- I made all 3 folders, and put the 3 mp3's in every folder, and restarted my phone, and it worked! So idk what folder it's really coming from, but I dropped the mp3's in all 3 just to be safe. haha. Thank you! I now have the dexter ringtone and the heroes text tone again! woooo!

    so you know

    alarms - this folder will put tones in your alarms menu
    ringtones - as it says on the tin this will add songs to your ringtone menu
    notifications - this will add tones to your message tones

    please remember anytime you add new songs you HAVE to restart your phone. Newly added tones won't appear till the phones been restarted.

    ringtones - as it says on the tin this will add songs to your ringtone menu
    notifications - this will add tones to your message tones

    You dont want to do that because then the ringtone goes into internal memory and cannot be deleted unless phone rooted. If you do the above you will be able to add and delete to your hearts content.
