Okay, problem number 2. I downloaded some music onto the M. With the Droid X and the Droid Razr Maxx, all I had to do was right click on a selection and choose "Make this a Ringtone." No fuss, no muss. Can't seem to be able to do this with the M (does the M stand for Mindboggling?). Anyone out there in etherland know how to select a piece of music for a ringtone, please let me know.
I usually use a file explorer app to move or copy the ringtones to the "ringtones" folder. Then the new tones are automatically added to the selection list. I noticed my Nexus already had that folder in the in the phone storage space when I went to setup my custom ringtones.
Hallelujah! Thru trial and error and shear stubborness, I finally figured out how to do this. The thing that had me puzzled was that I was looking in and trying the SD card. Wrong! Everything that I wanted, including a Ringtones folder, was located in the Device Storage area. Now I got things working, except for the connection problem.
Yeah! Most of the time music, photos, etc. could be found on the SD card. Not on the Razr M. A truly different phone. Here, the music, at least, is in the phone memory. Even some songs I've downloaded are in the phone memory, not the SD card. And here I thought that all the Razr phones acted the same way. Ha! Live and learn.
