    I have had no issue with this on the original Motorola Droid but no matter what folders I had the custom ringtones I made using Audacity they will not show up on my phone. Did the media/ringtone, media/alarm, media/notifications as I did a long time ago but for some reason now it isn't working. I want to say that wasn't an issue with GB but ICS and now JB it isn't working...but who knows.

    Is there a new method that I can't find to get them to show up? All I see are the stupid stock ones, plus the custom ones I had ages ago.

    Have you tried restarting the phone?

    Yeah I sure did, about 5 times. So far I've come to the conclusion that the only way to get it to work is to have a third party app that can assign/force the main ringtone. I downloaded the app 'Ringtone Maker' and so far that has allowed me to assign the ringtone. Ironically, it made the ringtone that I added show up on the master list.

    Strange though, that I had to use an app to force this. I'd try a data wipe/clean restore on the phone but don't think that this is a serious enough issue for it...just frustrating nonetheless.

    Thanks for the reply!

    I've never had to use a 3rd party app either. If it helps, this is how I did it in my Original Droid & this Galaxy Nexus. Here's a screenshot of my sd

    Edit: Here's another view. Different file explorer, different file path

    Thanks for the screenshots :happy3: I'll try and reorganize the internal and SD storage later today if I get a chance and see what happens. I may have to do a FDR based on some other issues I'm having, and that may do some good.
