I just got my Droid Eris yesterday so I'm still getting used to it, so far I love it.
Tons of info here, welcome to the forums! Android is a great operating system.
Welcome aboard Matt.
Great to have you here.
I've seen that and I'm grateful as there is no actual manual.
Glad to have you! Welcome!

What can I do to get a ringtone to show up in my list of ringtones?
If you place a ringtone on your sd card, you can have it show up as a ringtone according to the system by placing it into folders like this...
In other words, on your sd card, create a folder called media. Within the "media" folder, create one called audio. Within the "audio" folder, create one for ringtones and one for notifications.
Then, when choosing notifications or ringtones, those sound clips will show up according to which file you put them in!
Looks like Jonny has you all set. Let us know if you need anything more.
I've tried that method, including turning the phone off and back on with no luck.
Are you sure that your media folder is in the ROOT of the sd card? Meaning it's not in any other folder? Also, not sure if capitalization matters, but my folders are named media, audio, notifications, ringtones.
This works just fine for me. In fact, I was previously running Bugless Beast, and had ALL of the sound files from all versions of Android on my sd card (moved them there to conserve space) and had to "hide" them to avoid seeing duplicates.
However, my main ringtone, text notification, and notification for bloo are ALL setup using the stock ringtone/notification picker and those sound files are in the folders just as I have listed them...
If you'd just like to set a song/etc as a ringtone, and you can open it in the media player (music), press menu on the playing screen and select "Use as Ringtone. That will set it as a ringtone, and it can then be used for individuals and etc...
Hope that helps a little bit...?
I'm fairly certain that is the case, I'll try the capitalization thing though as sometimes it's the simplest things that throw a wrench into the works. Thanks for the workaround though.
