Default uploading with USB

Please Login to Remove!

I make my own ringtones and add to my phone. My laptop doesn't have bluetooth, so I connect my phone via USB and open the media manager and place them in the ringtone folder on my memory card. My problem is that when I got to media, ringtones, they're not visible. I have to go to media, menu, explore, and then see the contents of my media card. I'd like to be able to just go to ringtones and they're there. I do the same with my wife's phone, and it works fine. Any Ideas? Thanks in advance for any and all replies!

Depends on type of phone and format of ringtone. When posing a question please try to give as much info as possible. Better too much than too little. You'll get generic answers if any.

Not sure if this will make a difference, but a much easier way would be to upload the files via mass storage instead of using the media manager. Seems a bit more straight forward that way.

I have noticed that DM doesnt like my mp3 format ringtones. nCheck your formats and see if that might be the issue.

I have the 8310 and my tones are mp3. I always cancel the mass storage option. I'll have to try it and see if it makes a difference. Thanks for the info!

Mass storage should be a lot easier than media manager. No additional software to open up and use. Let us know how it goes!

Agreed. use Mass storage. Media manager is useless to me.
Copy all your ringtones into "Blackberry", "Ringtones" and voila!
