    I am trying to set an mp3 so when the alarm goes off it plays the song. I have created an folder called alarms on the sd card, but when I go to alarms it does not give me the option to select music or my song.

    The same thing for contacts. At least with the contacts I can go to the song and select as a ringtone, but I used to have it as I could go to alarm and select the music and the same thing with the contacts.

    Any suggestions?

    For the alarm it seems like you've followed the most common way I've seen it done:


    1. Plug your EVO into your computer and select

    I found this post in the evo4g forums at another site:

    "The way I did it is, create the directory media/audio/ringtones/notifications/alarms. Now put all of your music files that you want to use in the alarms folder. You can now choose any of the files for ringers, notification, or alarms."

    I tried this and nothing. It just loads defaults.

    I use a free app called Ringdroid which allows you to edit, clip, convert, etc. MP3s and then save them as alarms, ring tones, and notifications. This way what I create/convert/save shows up in whatever app I want (whether stock android or 3rd party) when setting the alarm, notification, or ring tone. I didn't know about the process you are following or I probably would've tried that first, but Ringdroid is free and easy, and it works. Everything I've saved shows up in Calendar, email, SMS, Facebook, phone, etc.

    "media/audio/ringtones/notifications/alarms" is wrong.

    Create a "MEDIA" folder and an "audio" folder in it. "ringtones", "notifications" and "alarms" are three seperate folders in the "audio" folder.

    Put your alarm in the "alarms" folder. Media/audio/alarms

    Actually I found a better way. I downloaded Handecent and now it does what I want it to do.
