Hi, I have a few custom notifications they are all .wma format. I have been using them for notifications for gmail, whatsapp and text messaging for a few years now.

Normally, i just add them to the notifications folder in my phone but for some reason when I go to the notification sounds on my Nexus 4 they are not in there.

Anyone have a fix? Any help would be a greatly appreciated.

------------------------------
PROBLEM SOLVED |||||| It seems like a lot of steps but I dumbed it down so anyone could follow it. It really only takes about 5 mins.
------------------------------

HOW TO:

I got it to work... Here is the fix.

Step 1. Go to Online Audio Converter (MP3, WAV, Ogg, WMA, M4A, AAC) – media.io and convert your files to .wav
Step 2. Move files to Nexus 4
2a Turn your phone on and unlock it.
2b Plug your N4 into your computer via usb cable.
3c If AutoPlay comes up select "Open device to view files"
4d Follow this folder path: Internal storage > media > audio > notifications
Step 3. Now that you have converted your files into .wav you need to drag them into this "notifications" folder.
Step 4. Close the folder.
Step 5. Unplug your phone.
Step 6. On your phone go to the app you would like to set the custom notification for.
Step 7. Under menu go to settings > Notifications > and select your new notification.
Step 8. Enjoy :D
Step 9. Push the thanks button :cool:

I dont have the N4 yet but maybe you should try to convert the WMA file to MP3 and then try again?

Hmm I hope I don't have to do that. I made these notifications back when I had the original evo and they worked fine on all of my other Android phones.

It's not a big deal, download some free converter software and it's a quick thing.
