    Change Start-Up sound?

    How do I change this? Somehow, instead of saying Droid, it does the low-battery alert.

    Does anyone know how to select the default ringtone for the startup?

    My droid has never played a startup or shutdown sound, doesn't really bother me. Don't know why it doesn't though.

    OK, this thread should help you both out. If you go to Menu > Settings > Sounds & display and check the SD card notifications box, you'll get the DROID! sound when you reboot and if it's unchecked you get nothing. There is no way to change that sound, however. It's either on or it's off...

    I don't recall the last time mine ever said "DROID!" on startup; instead it plays the notification called "On The Hunt."

    I assume if you're talking about the sound that plays when the lock screen first appears, all that uses is your default notification ringtone in Settings, assuming it's one of the default tones as your phone will not play custom tones until the SD card has been found (which would be after initial startup). So you can make it whatever you want. From there you go into any applications that use notifications and set a custom notification for them. My default notification tone is On The Hunt but for text messages I use the Transformer sound and email tones are silenced. Probably just restated what's on the thread that link pointed to but oh well, didn't feel like reading it.

    I'd like to be able to copy personalized tones to the phones folders but I guess that's what rooting is for. I found a bunch of sound clips from the HAL9000 and I was interested in integrating them with the Droid for a theme.

    How to add custom ringtones and notification sounds to your phone:

    1. Connect the device to the computer with the USB cable
    2. From the Droid home screen, pull down the Notification bar, located at the top of the screen (or you can also press the Menu Key on the front of your Droid and then select Notifications)
    3. Select USB Connected
    4. Select Mount
    5. From your computer explore the ‘Removable Disk’ which is actually your SD card.
    6. Create a folder called Media directly on your SD card, and then create these subfolders inside the Media folder:

    SD card/Media/Audio
    SD card/Media/Notifications
    SD card/Media/MP3s
    SD card/Media/Ringtones
    SD card/Media/Alarms

    Then just drop your files into the appropriate folder, and assign your personalized ringtones to contacts, email, and the alarm clock.

    Be sure to safely remove the Droid or touch 'turn off USB storage' and then turn off. No need to be rooted for any of this to work.

    No, I've done that already. What I was referring to is the ability to place custom tones on the phone itself. It's not that big of an issue because most people will never have their Droid up and running without the SD card. However there is the startup and mounting procedure; I'll give you an example...

    Upon initial startup, or when I plug the device into my laptop via USB and I get the notification that USB is connected, I originally wanted that to be the Transformers "transforming" sound, and then when I got a text message, I would use a soundclip from the HAL9000 that says, "There is a message for you..." However, since the tone is stored on the SD card, I only heard the transforming sound when I plugged the phone in. Unplugging it (or during startup) simply plays the default notification tone stored on the phone. That's why I was saying you'd likely need root access to mess around with the currently read-only folders, where the default tones, backgrounds, etc... are stored.

    Really I suppose it'd be nice if you could navigate the SD card from your computer and have the phone read it simultaneously, maybe I'm messing around with a bunch of stuff on the SD card and want to listen to music on the phone or watch a movie on the phone while I do...

    This might help, it should be practically the same for the droid family, but it is old and its just a general tutorial I made for putting ringtones and videos onto the droid itself.

    Changing sound settings on Droid2 global Low Battery Power notification

    I have changed the ringtones for phone calls, messages, and alarms, but I have not been able to find the option to change the low power setting notification/ringtone on the Droid 2 Global. Is it possible and how?

    Thanks
