Ringtone/Notification Sound Internal Storage Default

Recommended Posts

I have a bunch of custom ringtones and notification sounds downloaded from several different websites, apps, etc. Some of them are from downloads on previous phones that transferred over on my SD card.

In an attempt to "clean up" my phone yesterday, I moved any/all sounds (ringtones, music, audio, notifications, etc.) to my external SD card using "My Files."

I then also DELETED any music/audio/ringtone folder on the internal device storage, since I had move the contents to the SD card. undecided.png

I now realize, however, that I can locate ringtones on the SD card and change them (both as a global ringtone and for individual contacts), I am UNABLE to change a ringtone. crying.png

When I go to SETTINGS>My device>Sound>Default Notification Sound>, it provides a list of "standard" notification tones (i.e., Pure Bell, Temple bell, Whisper, USCC, etc.) However, NONE of them work...I hear no sound when I select them. I think it is because I deleted the notification folder from the storage location on the internal device. Also, I only have a CANCEL and an OK option for default notification sounds - I don't have an option to ADD (and search for a tone on the SD card or otherwise), like I do if I follow SETTINGS>My device>Sound>Ringtones>. That will let me choose "Add," and then I can use Sound picker to access where they are stored on my external SD card.

Does anyone know how I can either get the standard notification sounds back, or what the folder name/path was that I deleted, so that I can recreate the folder and put notifications back into it?

All I really need is a way to set a default notification sound that works (although i'd like to get custom ones back, and be able to change them for different things, at this point, I just want to have some tone, any tone, to use)!

For the record, I have also tried going into a specific contact, selecting "Message Alert" and I run into the same problem - no default tones listed actually "work," and I have no option to add them from the sound picker.

Any ideas? confused.pngredface.png

Actually, someone in another forum helped me.  All I needed to do was to recreate a folder named "Ringtones" (with a capital "R") in the internal device storage.  Then, I had to restart my phone.

 

Now, at least the default ones are working again! 

 

So, I'm thinking that if I put others in that folder, they will show up too...if not, no biggie, at least I have some and am able to get message notifications again.  O0
