    Personal Ringtones Keep Resetting To Silent Or Music

    I put some homemade ringtones into the folder
    sdcard\media\audio\ringtones
    I can set them as sms or phone ringtone without problems, however from time to time the sms goes back to silent and the phone ringtone often plays a random track from the music folder !

    I now know exactly what the cause of the problem is.
    It's whenever I connect to my PC.
    My Handcent notification sound and my phone ringtone were both silent today after I put some video on my phone the night before.
    Tonight I made sure the tones were reinstated then connected my phone to the PC.

    Turn on USB mass Storage.
    Open folder on PC
    Safely eject on PC
    Turn off USB mass storage

    All tones reset to silent.

    Now how do I ( or how does Samsung ) fix the problem ?

    Can anyone else go through the steps to check a rintone or notification they have added themselves ?

    I had this same problem too, it stopped after I reset my phone and I did figure out that it was because of the custom ringtones I kept adding to the media folder. I thought it was because my ringtones where in ogg vorbis format but that wasn't the case. Unfortunately I am very apprehensive to trying it again, it was an extreme pain in the butt lol idk if that's relavant but I just wanted to share.

    Also another way to get it to stop resetting is:

    *turn your phone off
    *pull the battery then put it back in
    *turn the phone on
    *then re asign all your notification tones.
    *then reboot

    Did it on a nexus s could work for other phones :-)

    Didn't work for me. Had my own tone/notification. After connection to PC they went silent.
    Phone off battery out and in.
    Reset tones/notification back to my own.
    Connect to PC / Disconnect.
    Back to silent

    PC connect - PC disconnect

    Now I'm going to have to be carefull installing my apps again in case it was one of them causing the problem
    Thanks for your help.
