    I dragged some ringtones I had on my Tour onto my Droid. I am able to use them for the phone, but I am trying to customize the notification alerts and the only options that it's giving me are the ones that come with the phone. Any ideas how to change that?

    If I recall correctly you can select what you want to hear and long press or hit the menu then "Set as".

    That will put it as a ringtone, but I'm not able to get at them to use them for email or text notifications.

    Maybe they need to be in a different directory. Try creating a directory named notifications on your card and put them in there. Maybe that would work. I'll try playing around with it later when I get some time.

    Ring droid allows you to create notification sounds.

    That worked for me. So I have two folders (ringtones and notifications) with the same tunes in them, but it works.

    Go into whatever app you want to set a notification for and set it there from the menu option.. I have one for each e-mail account and for chat too (meebo) you can set them all different if you like.

    Dunno why not because that is the way it works. You should have the following directories in the root of your sd card:

    /sdcard/ringtones
    /sdcard/notifications

    Good luck.

    It might have gone into your music file. I found two ring tones in there because when I saved them, they were mp.3 files. From my music file, I set them as ring tones.

    I had to create the following directories and I am able to set whatever ringtone notification and alarm sounds I want:

    /sdcard/media/audio/alarms
    /sdcard/media/audio/notifications
    /sdcars/media/audio/ringtones

    I did not have the directories in the root of the sdcard that you mentioned.
