Where are ringtones and notification sounds stored?
Where are these files stored on the internal phone storage? I'm not talking about the SD card. I discovered the source of a problem wherein my phone would seemingly randomly change my notifications. I found out it happened every time I plugged the phone into my computer via a USB cable. What happens is that the ringtones and notifications for email, SMS, and any other app that stores these files on the SD card cannot find them once the phone is plugged into a computer via USB if the phone is set to allow direct access via the computer. Since the phone cannot find the associated ringtone or notification sound, it just randomly assigns another and does not switch it back once the phone is unplugged. I'm hoping to find the location of the internal storage where the stock ring tones and notification sounds are kept so that I can put my custom ring tones and notifications there. The stock notifications are never disturbed. This way, my custom settings won't be either. The only other solution is to never plug my phone into the computer again. Really, this is a bit of stupidity on Android's part. I can understand why the phone cannot access these files while it is plugged in, as the SD card is not accessible to the phone at all at that point. However, the OS should recognize what has happened and revert to the selected sounds once the SD card is accessible again. Instead, I have to go back and change every single custom ring tone and notification sound after every time I plug the phone into the computer. What a PITA,
Anyone know where these files are stored and how to get my files in there?
