    I have an audio file that I saved as both a .wav and .mp3 and placed it in my Ringtones folder and the files are not available when I try to select it as a ringtone for a person on my Incredible.

    Are there specific encoding settings that need to be made?

    Thanks.

    I thought original ringtones were .ogg files.

    Try Ring Extended app. It will use those other types.

    I have tried .wav, .mp3, .mp4 and I just realized that I can not find the folder with ringtones. I mount my Incredible and I can see files I have on my SD card, though I can not find the files on the Incredible itself.

    1. do the ringtones have to be on the SD card or the Incredible?
    2. Using Astro File Manager, I am trying to copy the file from one location and paste it into what I think is the right location System > Media > Ringtones, though it will not let me paste it
    3. I can not access the System folder at all when I mount it, I just see my SD card.

    Any help will be appreciated!!!

    You can use any supported format.

    SD card. It's possible that the rescan isn't working quite right on your device. Have you placed the files and tried rebooting? You shouldn't have to but a reboot should force a rescan.

    You can also download zedge from the market. There is something like 200k ringtones and even backgrounds available and all you have to do is push to download then then set it.
