    Simple way to do this...
    On your SD card create THIS FILE STRUCTURE:

    MEDIA
    --Audio
    ----Ringtones
    ----Alarms
    ----Notifications

    Now all you have to do is fill in these directories with the Mp3s you want, and they will show up in those respective lists !!!

    Damn :mad:. I hate random retard moments lol. Should have been obvious to create an "alarms" folder since I had already done the same for notifications and ringtones and everything else lol. Thanks for pulling my head out :icon_ banana:

    you can specify which tones are used in each application. They're all under each application's settings. If you don't set one yourself, the default notification tone will be used!

    yup go into each one you want to change and change the Setting of Notification from "Default" to whatever you want.

    I have diff tones for my 2 email accounts, texts, and ringer.

    also , if you download

    sms popup

    as your sms notifications manager, you can turn of notifications in your default messaging application and then have custom notifications per contact. Just set it up within sms popup and it does the rest!

    Connect your Droid to computer.

    On Droid slide down your notification bar you'll see your USB connection in there. Click it.
    Mount SD Card.

    Then explore to it on your computer should show up just like a USB drive does, and add the folders right to the root of the SD Card that's all I did.

    Handcent SMS also excellent allows you to change the color of the blinking LED so you can have no audio notifications and change the color and blink rate of the LED.

    Def worth the download.

    handcent or ChompSMS

    whatever you'd like works, though i find Chomp's interface to be a lot crisper, though handcent has many applications integrated inside of it by default.

    If you're an enthusiast or the type to have the most control over your device

    i'd actually download chompsms and use sms popup,

    sms popup has it's code open source so many other developers can integrate it (ie handcent) but if you want the latest and greatest, you have to get it standalone.

    You can use this file structure to play any mp3 for any TYPE of notification (ringtone sms mms email or alarm)... but not for individual contacts (except ringtones)

    You just create the folders on your SD card using Windows/mac

    Instructions for PC dummies:

    mount your SD card to you PC...
    OPEN the SD card (removable drive e: or what ever it is on your PC)to view files...
    right click and goto "new" then "folder", then name the folder.

    open that folder and do the same for each directory in the file structure!
