Having read many ways of adding more notification tones, I decided to take the safe approach and below is a KISS approach (keep it simple stupid), that I'll share with you.
Add Notification & Other Tones
via external micro SD Card
Galaxy to PC using cable
Windows Explorer, if not opened automatically
3. Two folders appear, Card
4. Enter Card
5. All existing folders & files on Card
a new folder and name it media
7. Enter media
folder & create
a new folder and name it audio
8. Enter audio
folder & create
a new folder and name it notifications
(you are now three layers down into the Card directory)
9. In this notifications
the tones you want available for choosing on your Galaxy S notification tones
(that appear in Settings-Sound & Display).
phone from PC (hit central home button on Galaxy)
12. Turn Off
(power off) Galaxy S
13. Turn On
Galaxy S (reboot process needed to find files)
Settings (hit bottom left key to quickly access this)
Sound & Display (3rd choice down)
down to Notification ringtone & Select
17. Tah Dah
– you now have more notification tones !!!
How to add more Ringtones & Alarms ……
a. follow processes 1 to 7
b. at process 8 create another folder called ringtones and/or alarms
c. Follow processes 10 to 17 and Tah Dah, you got em !!!
For the clever ones …… you have created a new file structure on your SD card as follows, which Galaxy recognizes (only on a new power-up):-
Note: Depending on the file structure of your sd Card, you may not need to add additional folders as your Samsung Galaxy S will pick up multiple media files on reboot (power-up).
Final Note: This approach could work on the phones internal memory, however, probably safer to add via external memory sd Card so it won’t interfere with Samsung’s preloaded tones. Just remember, if you delete folders or tones from the external sd Card, they will no longer be available.
