    theres no question there. my question for richstevenson was if i can save that fallback ringtone so i can use it whenever i want. my subject for the thread i started was "hidden ringtone" which i think is one because u cant choose it under ringtones

    You'll need a player like VLC to listen to it though.VLC media player for Windows
    I believe this is what plays when the phone is restarted/booted while being connected to the PC via USB. Right when the lock screen loads up on the phone after restarting, it will show an Icon temporarily in the notification bar saying its preparing the memory card, and you will also hear this sound.

    My guess is that it uses this sound as a backup when it can't access the ringtones you might have set from the sdcard. Since it prepares the card after booting, something must be causing it to ring (and resort to this "backup ring" until the card is ready to be used).

    Either way, the sound is kinda annoying, but I thought it was odd the first few times I heard it as well.

    Does anyone mind rehosting the ring-tone? The link no longer works.

    I fixed this on mine and never posted about it. The tone happens when you have replaced your notification tone with something located only on your sdcard, or you accidentaly deleted the stock Droid.ogg, so the tone sounds when it can't access the sdcard (i.e. on first bootup or unplugging from being mounted to your pc).
    The way I went about it, was to take the custom tone I use, rename it from .mp3 (or whatever it happens to be) to .ogg, then for simplicity sake, place the .ogg file on the root of your sdcard. Now open terminal emulator;
    $su
    #mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    #busybox cp -R /sdcard/(tone).ogg /system/media/audio/notifications
    #mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    Some ROMs will have a shortform to mount the system (i.e. mountsys, sysmount) it depends on what you are using, but those can save you alot of that typing.
    An even easier way to fix this is to just use a stock notification tone... but where is the fun in that
    Hope this helps.
