    Alright, i searched the forums and didnt see this anywhere, so no flaming...

    Is there a way to change the default sound that is played when the SD card is being Mounted for Phone Use?

    That is one loud annoying sound, and I would love to have something a little softer, or no noise at all.

    Anyone done this yet and care to share a little head knowledge?

    Thanks,

    If you go to your sound and display settings, you can uncheck the SD Card notifications and that will turn off the sound for SD card mountings completely.

    If you want to change the sound, I believe it uses the default notification sound (which can be changed from the same menu).

    But if you disable the SD notification sounds, your phone will no longer announce "DROID" when you reboot it :icon_evil:

    this isn't exactly true. If you make a custom ringtone and use this for notification you get a terrible buzz for sd card mounting. I don't see an option to change the sound at all. The problem is that the custom ringtone is located on the sd card and can't be played until the card is mounted so you don't get the droid sound on boot just wanted to pass this along

    I actually want that "annoying" beep. I want it for my ringtone and can't find it anywhere on my phone. Anyone know where that beep beep beep sound is?

    I'm having a similar problem with my X. (Droid X not wife :)) I want a different sound to play for the SD card notification however the audio file i selected in notifications IS NOT the same audio i hear when the SD notification plays. However when i do get an IM or calendar reminder etc. my custom audio file does play. Any help?
