    So I have a notification tone I made with Ringdroid, and I set it for my notifications. Only problem with that is, since it is stored on the sd card, when mounting my sd card, or powering up my phone I get and annoying beeping sound. So what I tried to do was move that tone over to system/media/audio/notifications in root explorer. That didn't work, and I thought the problem was since it wasn't in ogg format it wouldn't work. So I converted it to ogg format, and it still won't work. What am I doing wrong? It shows up in "Notification Ringtone" in settings, but when I try it there is no sound.

    If I understand correctly, the new ringtone has replaced the "Droid". Is that correct?

    The only suggestion I have is to remove/delete the file(ringtone) you created then readd to the media file. Once you get it in the media file reconfigure the notification.

    Please let us know if this helps.

    i have had similar problems b4 with that & not hearing the sound when trying to select it, but after selecting itnext time i got a notification it played how it should & sounded fine, with the exception that- when i custom my own ringtone w/ ringdroid it sounds fine- but when i custom a notification sound, it plays ok but has this continuious lag noise & it screws up the sound.- any ideas on how to remedy that as well anyone?

    You've tried pushing a notification here: system/media/audio/notifications?

    yeah through mounting it & selecting it on my phone- no sound plays, but for some reason? when i select it on my phone that notification plays? when i get a text message ( what i set the sound up for ) i know that sounds weird, but its the truth- when you go to the notification list ( on the phone ) does it show up in the list? if so, have you tried selecting it & having someone text you, or however that sound is set up for? see if it works -

    So what you're saying is; it won't play the sound when selecting it, but if it is selected, it still works?

    yes- i know that sounds ****ed up & the sound im refering to on my phone that does that, is the only one ( of many others ) i have that does this?????? lol, im just trying to suggest stuff from what i had to do to get it to work. the app i got the sound from kept f/c on me everytime i opened it i deleted the app but kept the sound on my sd card fearing it would be a pain in the ass to try to get the app to stay open long enough to re download the sound. i did, however, move the sound to my music file & now i can hear it on my phone in my music & when mounting it to my netbook............i know you probably think im nuts -lol- im not bull****ting you. that is weird, now i can hear the sound??????????
