In the Sound and Display menu, Notification ringtones offers a very limited choice of sounds (for incoming SMS).

I have been unable to add external sounds to the list provided in the handset.

Does anyone know if it is possible to extend the choice of sounds in this menu and how ?

Thanks for your help.

hi ts, just plug your phone to your desktop and use mass storage mode.

copy and paste music files from your desktop to the audio folder(inside media folder)of your phone. it will be added to the list of notification tones in the settings. tnx

Just ran into the same issue today (wanted to transfer my familiar notification tone from my old phone) and found the solution on the web, which works for me:

On the internal SD card (I haven't tried if it works on the external one as well), create these directory structures (from the root)

\Media\Audio\Alarms
\Media\Audio\Notifications
\Media\Audio\Ringtones

The files you put in these three folders will automatically show up in the selection lists when configuring the sounds for Alarms, Notifications and Incoming Calls, respectively. Unfortunately, they will also still show up in the Audio Player, so if you shuffle through all your music files, it will occasionally play your message notification or ringtone. Haven't found a way to prevent that (maybe setting the hidden and/or system attribute on the files would do the trick?)...

Thank you both.

I think I managed to do it... after a lot of trial and error...

I have seen more easily accessible files !

And I had to find out how to turn on and off the USB connection... this is nowhere in the user manual !

if you go to your music player ... pick a song  then hit the "menu key" at the bottom left , you will see  "set as"  there you can put it in your ring-tones or alarms.

This is true.  Does anyone know if you can set the email ringtone notificationdifferent from the text notification?  That way I know which one when I hear it.  Seems like a pretty important feature that's lacking.

@ dhahgartydc: The ringtones for different apps like txt msg and email are set within each application, not in a central ringtone/notification setting.  So to get a different ring tone when say a txt message arrives this is what you do: Open text message application.  Select settings from the menu. scroll down the page to 'notification settings' and choose 'select ringtone'. you can do same thing for email, i think a different tone for each account.  I can't believe i'm saying this, but it was much better on my windows mobile 6.5 Palm Treo Pro!

Does anyone know if you can set different notifications for a Calendar alarm?  It seems that all systems notifications are just a common ringtone??

Alan - I have done what you say but for example if I have a tune on mt thy phone Take That for instance and I want to use this TakeThat song when a text comes through it dont allow me to this on the phone.  Can someone point me in the right direction for me to be able to set this, all I seem to be able to do is have the samsung text alerts that came with the phone.

Shell,

You have to follow Robert-s instructions (above). It works.

If you create a sub/file "notifications". Every track you will add to it will automatically go into the original notifications file of the phone.

Don't ask me why or how !

Hi everyone, just purchased a Galaxy the other day, cool phone. Ive been reading this thread as I have the same question. I have created a folder on the Internal memory and have added some tones I want for my SMS, the only thing is I can select them, but it does not play the tone I have selected. Does it matter if the folder or the tone title has a capiltal letter at the start??

I am not very tech when it comes to such things so I need to work out how to even create a folder.
I know this sounds dim and I apologise in advance but I wish that I had a simple English step by step guide how I done things Crying

First you turn your phone in "mass storage" device before connecting to a computer.

After connecting via USB, you need to press menu (down left) and press "notifications".

The screen will show show something like "USB connected". You need to click on that and a new screen will open, asking you some sort of confirmation that you need to click on.

After that, you will be able to access the content of the SD card on the computer screen and do almost whatever you wish, such as creating a new sub-file in the music file, named "music/notifications".

Any music track you will add to this file will automatically show in the original notifications file of the phone.

Don't ask me why...

I create the folder as suggested but when I select the tone I want from the list, its selects a tone from the folder that came with the phone, even though I have added my own. Frustrating. So I contacted Samsung and they advised that the software is not compatible. How do I get the software updated or see if mine is the latest?

The thing is that, if you create a folder named Notifications, the software somehow confuses it with the existing folder bearing the same name.
Therefore, every track you upload in the folder you have created is automatically duplicated in the original folder.
At least, this is what happened with my phone.
I have the original Notifications folder, which I cannot directly access. And I have a folder which I created, named Ringtones (sdcard/ringtones), within which I created a sub/folder named Notifications (sdcard/ringtones/notifications/).

It works a little like the music player.
You upload a track in a folder on the sd card, say Music. Then this track will automatically find its way to the music player files, which by the way is particularly boring...
