    Default noob question: Moving a ringtone mp3, can not write.

    Hi, new to android. Trying to copy a ringtone mp3 into /system/media/audio/notifications, using Astro File Manager.

    Fails to copy, seems like I do not have permissions to write.

    What am I missing here, do I need to Root to do this?

    When I moved the file down from Dropbox, I copied it to /storage/sdcard0/Ringtones. This is strange, since I dont have an SDcard on this phone (Droid DNA). I could write to this location, but couldnt see the mp3 thru the Sounds tab in preferences.

    thanks

    Not rooted. I only seem to have access to sdcard directory structure and nothing else. R

    Sure, but that doesnt answer my question.

    How do you add ringtones and then be able to see them in the Ringtones or Notifications menu?
    I shouldn't need Root to add a mp3 file.

    No but try downloading a file broswer from the Google store it'll give you access to the SD card
