    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!

    Not sure if they will, i use only MP3s. Try it and let us know... otherwise i would suggest converting them.

    Let's get this straight. You create all 4 folders off the root of the storage card?
    Or is Audio the first folder with Ringtones, Alarms and Notifications under it?

    This is correct (create all folders off the root). And I was able to use wma's for alarms, but I did have to power off and back on before it would recognize them.

    you can create these folders anywhere...the system will detect them HAH!

    you can create a single "media" folder with subfolders "alarms,notifications,etc" and it'll work

    or you can just create the alarms,notifications,etc in the root of the sd card, and it will work as well

    your choice!

    Free app called tone picker will let you select any of your songs for any type of notification. When you click select ringtone, notification or whatever it gives the option to use tone picker and it lists all your songs and ringtones.

    Yes you can create these folders ANYWHERE on the SD card...
    Though ive received feedback from users sayin it did not work. ( though a reboot fixed this)
    My file structure of a MEDIA folder with and AUDIO folder inside with the three event folders ( Ringtones, Alarms, Notifications) Has worked every time with no reboot, So i just gave the tried and tested way. To each their own, as long as you get it working RIGHT ?

    I did this but when selecting alarm sounds I can't point to the SD card - only the onboard files. I also can't copy my sound into the System/Media/Audio/Alarm folder. Help.

    You don't browse to the SD card when selecting an alarm. Anything in the Alarms folder will appear in the list along with the system ones.

    Is this droid 2.0 specific? I've tried creating the file structure on my Eris and no luck in it picking up the mp3s in the alarms folder.
