XPRT: mp3 format issues

2011-06-30, 14:43 PM

I have imported the ringtones from my crackberry curve 8330 which I made in audacity and exported as both wav and mp3.  My issue is that while I can specify regular songs as ringtones the option to do so with the imported ringtones is grayed out.  I was hoping someone might have some insight as to what is what...  Why do regular songs work and the ringtones work in other phones but only the regular songs work in the XPRT?  Am I missing something?  Attached is the file that will not work...

Solved! See the solution

No, this was something I built from a freely available d/l using Audacity...  FOSS or death...

Works fine on my xprt.  Just went to this link:

https://supportforums.motorola.com/servlet/JiveServlet/download/415078-87473/Doom_Song.mp3 from my xprt and then clicked on it.  Then it downloaded the song.  After that it opened the connected music player. Once open I pushed the Menu button( 4 boxes) and the option for "Set as Ringtone" appeared. I then called the phone and that ringtone played.  My kids went crazy!!! Thanks.

@pha3drs

If you place any downloaded notification in the following folder, it should work.

Using a file manager, like the stock one.

SD Card -

          Media-

               audio-

                    notifications-

That is where you will want to put your notification ringtones.

As for ringtones, very similar.

SD Card-

     Media-

          audio-

               Ringtones-

Try places your ringtone and notification tone in those folders.

Then when you go an change, your ringtone, lets say, you will see the ringtones that you have added to the "ringtone" folder.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

J

Well, for whatever reason, my phone has the "Set as ringtone" grayed out.  However, I found it listed in the system ringtones drop down.  Specifying it from that location functions...  Thanks for all the help.

Consider connecting your device to the computer directly with the USB cable and using the Mass Storage mode to drag n drop files.  



I'm wondering if there is any file compression going on when you send the file over email that will distort the sound quality....
