    Hi!

    The EVO is my first Android device and I loving it!

    When I connect the device to my computer, where do I place new ringtones, sms sounds, or wallpapers? Can they go on the sdcard?

    Thanks for your help!

    I just learned what to do on this.

    On the SD Card, create a file called "ringtones" and put those mp3's into that folder.

    Ok, what about wallpapers? And what if I want to add more SMS tones?

    And what about videos? How are they to be converted? Where do they go on the sdcard?

    I put some .mp4 video files in "sdcard/Videos" but when I open up the "Videos" app, it still says no videos found.

    Where the heck do I place the mp4 files?

    I saw this covered somewhere here on in other android forums . You have to convert videos through a little free program , so the video fits the evo screen and doesnt take much space .

    What I did was set up files to mimic whats on the device itself. I created a file named "media" on the root of the card, then placed 3 sub-files named "ringtones", "alarms" and "notifications" inside the media file. I then placed my sounds in the corresponding file and rebooted the phone. Worked for me...

    There's a small little app in the marketplace called "Tone Picker" (like 40k and free) that lets you use other media apps to select ringtones and other audio clips, say for alarms, or sms notifications. Combine that with a file manager like Astro and you can then put your audio anywhere on the card, in any folder and you can use Tone Picker to let you point to it. Works very well.

    I did this so that I didn't have to put the same sounds in Ringtones, Alarms and notifications as the built in picker only can look at one place at a time it seems. (Alarms looks at alarms, ringtone at ringtone folder, etc...)

    All of these questions have already been answered. Please look in the wallpapers, ringtones, and themes forum & also use the search button to find plenty of threads on video conversion.
