    You'll need to drop the file into the ringtones folder which can be found in the media folder, iirc.

    What error does it give?

    It could be because of the file type, but normally it would be able to transfer in and then not show up on the menu.

    It's not as simple as just renaming it, you'd have to convert it.

    I don't think a .wav would prevent you from playing it as a ringtone. All of mine have been .mp3s, but as a test I converted a ringtone to both mp3 and wav. Both worked for me.

    There should be 3 folders on your root of your sdcard for sounds Ringtones, Notifications, and Alarms. If you want to add ringtones, put things in the /sdcard/Ringtones/ folder. In this case you don't want a ringtone, you want notifications. Put the .wav in /sdcard/Notifications/ and then try selecting the notification tone again.
