    I created a ringtone for my OG Droid running Simply Stunning 5.6, and usually it detects my ringtone folder on the root of my SD card. It's not though. How can I force it to scan or find the ringtones I have?

    Do you have handcent installed? This texting app will let you use different ringtones, not just the ones that come with SS 5.6.

    I have Chomp installed and updated.

    Also I noticed, the ringtones I have for text show up (there is just two of them total), but nothing else. I will try and find where I have those stored at.

    What format is it? If its Mp3 you could try hooking your phone to your computer and use your computer to search for *.mp3.

    Ringtone notifications are in a file called Notifications on the root of the SD Card

    You might be able to do a search with the root explorer app if you have it, if not probably any file manager app in the market should work.

    I hooked up my phone and checked it out. Ringtones folder looks just fine, just seems it's not being included in the system scan.

    It's probably not in your ringtones folder. I opened up root explorer, went to my sd card folder, then brought up menu and selected search. I typed in *.mp3 and after scanning, it brought up all my mp3's that are on my sd card.

    Wat? I told you, I plugged in my phone and found the text tones under Notifications and my ringtones are stored in a folder called Ringtones. I moved the ringtone to the Notifications and it showed up under where I set my ringtones. Temporary fix but not the solution I want to settle on.

    If it helps, I recently put a new wallpaper in my Wallpaper folder on the root of the SD Card and the phone had no problem detecting it.

    Oh, it's alright. And yes, I can use it as a ringtone. I want to know why my Ringtones folder isn't being detected though when I go to set my ringtone. I didn't have this problem on 5.5

    Also, I popped the SD card out and back in, no change.

    I see, if I hadn't of broke my D1, I would've flashed 5.6 and I could check that out for you. I'm really not sure, sorry :( Hopefully, someone else may be able to shed some light on this issue.
