    Well, this happened with my D1, now it's also happening with the Droid 2.
    I have a habit of rebooting my phone daily. I don't know why, but I do.
    I have two custom sound files on the phone, Specifically the SD card. For reference, they are:

    Notification: scan_complete.mp3
    GMail Alert: threat_detected.mp3

    My issue is this: Sometimes, when I turn the phone on, I get an SD card alert. I shouldn't, seeing as how the "SD Card Notifications" option is turned OFF.

    Before I turned it off, however (to combat the issue), I heard an odd tone from the phone. It sounded more like an alert tone rather than the sound I had setup. This happened about 25% of the time.

    Also, I noticed that sometimes, upon receiving text messages or e-mails, the phone would play MUSIC files, for example, Sevendust's "Separate", instead of the notification sound scan_complete.mp3

    This still happens quite often, I have to go into the phone settings and re-select my applicable sound files for the proper notifications.

    On a side note, my phone still gives me the vibrations for SD notifications - i would much prefer this be turned off, but I can't figure it out.

    Edit: On another note - it likes to vibrate ONLY even when I have it set to full volume across the board. I double check the settings too - the notifications are selected.

    I do not want to have to root the phone to fix these issues.

    Your issues are not common so I don't know that rooting it would solve your issues.

    I have ringtones set for different contacts, a tone for gmail, a tone text, and different text tones for certain contacts. They work every time.

    I also turned off the SD notification because the tones I use are on the SD card so they wouldn't play anyway.
