    Question Playing MUSIC not RINGTONES

    I am currently using Mabilo to download different ringtones, usually 30 second clips or other small nonsense sounds. When they save to my SD they are in a foder 'sd/com/mabilo/nameoringtone.mp3' Obviously when I open my MUSIC player on my droid it will play that ringtone...

    Having that said, is there a way to save/organize the song/mp3's that I download from my PC, so that the droid MUSIC player will play these songs, and not the 30 seconds clips that I downloaded from Mabilo...

    thx.

    Welcome to the forum

    I am not sure about your question honestly, I have had 30 second ringtones and they always showed up in my Music application anyway....but I just deleted them and made my own ringtones with Ringdroid....

    hey thanks, Im enjoying the droid thus far, but i can tell i'll be on the forum a lot :/

    i guess i may just have to live with listening to the sporatic 30 second clip when listening to music....

    ill def look into ringdroid though.

    Create a MEDIA folder on your sd card and drag the music to it.

    in the MEDIA folder make 6 other folders

    MEDIA
    /alarms
    /notifications
    /camera
    /ringtones
    /videos
    /music

    when you transfer data to your droid- place it in the appropriate folder.

    if you put music into the music folder when you open the music player on the droid it'll be available.

    hmm that was worth a try, but still having the same problem. I think the droid is searching the sd card for ANY mp3 file and just adding that to the playlist when i open up the MUSIC player...i followed your directions to the T, maybe defective phone?

    another option is to get rid of the :

    "sd/com/mabilo/nameoringtone.mp3'"

    folder and transfer all of your ringtones to the MEDIA/ ringtones- the only issue is when you move the media you'll have to reassign the ringtones you've associated.

    The problem now might be that the MUSIC prgram has several places it's looking to music in.

    I hope deleting that folder helps.

    Using .media

    I put a blank (.nomedia) file in the folders that i did not want my music players to find files in and it worked...

    how to...mount phone with usb and goto folder that has ringtones or other recorded files. Then right click and click on new. then text document and then rename New Text Document.txt to nomedia without the txt extintion....ok my pc with windows 7 would not let me put the "." in front of file so unmount and goto phone and use Astro to find the file "nomedia" you just made and tap and hold till menu comes up and tap edit then rename and put the . in front of nomedia...should look like this .nomedia
    Now all music player should ignore and music files in that folder and subfolders

    one problem i see is that it looks like my my ringtones are Ignored by phone as well
    still trying to figure out that one now...but i dont have and ringtones showing in my tunewiki just got to figure out how to make the phone see the ring tones again
    hope that helps

    I have the same setup as above (folder structure). anything in my ringtone folder does not show up in my music player.

    Next problem

    I have a few personalized notifications, alarms and ringtones that the phone does not find now. when i got to there respective places to change them they are hidden now. from me adding that .nomedia file.
    Im rooted and have found the default phone sounds under root system/media/audio
    Can i copy and past some of my favorite sound file over there to phone memory and have them show up and work and not do some damage other than take up more phone memory?

    Edit : Didn't work with Astro would not Paste...tryed with Linda Manager and said folder was read only....what program do i need to write to phone memory?
