    Sorry this took so long, but things have been a bit hectic since I sobered up from New Year's....

    I purchased the Nexus Media app from the Play Store and a $2.00 or so OTG multi-card reader (mini, SD & USB). Plugged them all into my phone with my 32-gig miniSD from my Atrix HD and was able to transfer all my books from Kob0 and ringtones from Zedge right onto my Moto X. No problems with the import/export process at all. Thanks for the help!

    The only issue I have is that my downloaded ringtones will play on my media player but I can't figure out how to get them to work as actual ringtones or notifications. I also can't get any of my downloaded music tracks to work as ringtones either. Is this a Moto X issue or user error (again....sigh) on my part?

    I am going to try and use my 1 terabyte external memory to see if I can get it to work with an external battery hooked up for the extra juice needed to power it that the Moto X won't provide.

    It's not very practical, but would be cool for watching movies on the phone while traveling if I can get it to work.

    Why not just watch movies from the card reader or a little USB drive? A big HDD seems kind of overkill. About the ringtones, they have to be dropped or written into the right folder, unsure what the procedure is. It's not straightforward I gather, from other users' problems.

    I have a couple 64-gig thumb drives, but a movie is anywhere from 4-8 gigs (depending on a lot of factors, as you probably already are aware) so I can only get 8-12 movies on one. I would just like to be able to choose from any of my 50-60 movies I have at this point. I am also thinking of putting the 10-12 TV Series I have on another drive to have available. The process is not hard, but with a series, will be a bit more time consuming. Overkill is probably a good term for it....

    You need to create a folder called notifications in sdcard0 and put files you want to use for notifications there and another folder called ringtones for the ringtones. Usually the folders are already on the device. They'll automatically show up a choice in the selector. If your using the Zedge app you won't need the folders.

    Can this be done (creating folders) unrooted?

    I use ES. :-) I have made folders before, but not for ringtones or alerts, just my media collections. Thanks again.

    I did this last night. I just moved the files from "Downloads" to the already existing "Ringtones" folder and they work just fine. I did not have to create a new file.

    Thanks for the help! I also moved song files into the folder and they worked as well.

    Thanks, this is good to know for my own future reference.

    Yep, you can use the built in file manager or something like Astro. Folders are probably already there though so you can just copy stuff into them.
