I downloaded "Hey! Listen!" from Zelda and set it as my notification sound, and it works fine when I get an email or a message from gtalk, however I'd also like to set the sound for whenever I receive regular texts. Anyone know how to do this?
Welcome, jennyy! If you want to add anything (sounds, wav files, songs, whatever) it's very simple. Just mount your Droid and create a directory called "media" directly on the SD card. Then in the media directory create a subdirectory called "audio". Then in the audio directory create three subdirectories called "notifications", "ringtones", and "alarms". Then just drop your files into the appropriate folder, and assign ringtones to contacts, email, and the alarm clock.

It's that easy! You should be all set!
I've done the steps listed, but the only setting that recognizes the new .WAV file is changing the Ringtone. When attempting to change the TXT notification via the message applet, or changing the default notification sounds from within Settings, neither area recognizes the new .wav file regardless if it is in any one or all of the created folders. Music app also sees the new .wave file just fine, I just cant get Settings>Default notifications or the settings within sms messages to see the new file. I have an HTC Droid Eris on Verizon. Thoughts? ... thanks,
AFter you create the folders and move the media in to the correct folders, reboot. I was having the same trouble....rebooted and now we are good to go!
Thanks for your help. Actually, I have restarted the phone several times, the latest just this morning and I still cannot see any new entries in the notification sounds area, even though the file is in the media\audio\notifications folder on the SD card. New ringtones appear fine from those folders, just not notifications. Other thoughts?

Holy crap! That was exactly what I needed. Thanks much, guys!
