    I have figured out how to change the Ringtone to a MP3 and that works fine, but i have not found a way to change the message notification tone to a MP3. I figured out how to change it to another preselected built in tone. but is there a way to use my own MP3 for the message notification tone???? possibly a good app or something???

    I'm not sure this is the right answer, but I THINK you have to create a "Notifications" folder on the Droid's micro-SD card, and then dump the MP3s in there.

    WTF on the username? lol...

    Mount your phone as a drive by plugging the data cable in, swipe down your notification pane, and manually create "notifications" and "alerts" and "ringtones" folders. Place your files there, and enjoy.

    COOL! that worked. I created a folder called notifications and moved the MP3 i wanted into that folder. then when i went to select a notification tone. my MP3 appeared! excellent! it was just a folder naming thing.

    what does the alert folder do? how do i set alert tones? or moreso what triggers alert tones?


    MEGA THANKS!

    Alarms, calendar events, etc.

    Your default alarm options are really lame, so you'll probably want to wake yourself up to something other than an obnoxious buzz.

    Curious - where do you put the "notifications" folder in the Droid's directory structure? In the top level, in a "music" or "audio" subfolder, or what?

    i kno your problem was already solved but you can also make notifications using the ringdroid app. when you edit a song and you are going to save it there is a menu that contain the option of making it into a ringtone or a noticfication.

    So I also came to this searching for answers to this question but none of these explain how I did manage to change my notification ringtone.
    Basically I have been racking my brain and searching through my Droid becausewhen I got it I managed to get an mp3 ringer onto my phone and then in the list of notification ringers to choose from. I now cannot for the life of me remember how. It definatly had nothing to do with creating folders and sub-folders.
    Any ideas???
