    Hi,

    I added a few MP3's from a sound site, however some only work as ringtones but will not work as notifications. I have the two folders- Ringtones, Notifications but there is no choice to "set as" notification" only Phone ringtone, Caller ringtone or Alarm tone. When I go thru settings/sound settings/notification ringtone they do show on the list, but even when chosen the last sound I had plays I have also tried restarting. Do some sounds simply not work well?.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Download Ringtone maker. You can browse your files, find the sound clip and choose to save as mp3, ringtone or notification file.

    If your rooted you can copy and paste them to your system/media/audio/notification file. Just don't forget to change the owner and permissions. Owner/group should be root/root and the perms should be rw-r-r I believe. I've done this in the past and even after flashing a different ROM those media files were still there.
