Ringtones Saved From Audio Files In Sd Card Disappear After Reboot

I'm having a problem creating ringtones from files saved to the sd card. I have succeeded in getting the information to be written to the mediastore database, and the files do show up in settings -> sound & display -> phone ringtone. However, as soon as i reboot the phone, the files disappear from the list of ringtones.

The only clue i have is that the database in /data/data/ Providers. Media/databases/external-. Db is getting its rows deleted on startup. The files themselves are not changing. Even stranger is that, if i simply copy the file from the sd card to the files/ directory of the internal storage directory for my app, and then save that file as the ringtone, it works!  However, it doesn't really seem feasible to me to force the user to keep two copies of the audio file.

I do have a . Nomedia file in the audio files directory (to avoid the files showing up in the music app), but i have tested this with and without the . Nomedia file and the same problem occurs.

Below is my code for creating the ringtone/notification. The users of my app would be really grateful if i figured this out.

Htc Droid Eris - Send Audio Through The Gmail App

Had my eris for about 3 weeks now and i have a question or 2 that i just can't figure out. Is there any way to send audio through the gmail app? Alls i can figure out how to send is photos. Same with handcent. I can send audio with handcent but not pre recorded audio. I am a musician and often when i had my "dumb" phone i would record snippets of songs and send them to my band members. If i cannot do this it would probably be a deal breaker for me. On another note, i can't seem to get the gmail app to work right atm anyhow. Replied to an email and it has said sending for about an hour now.

Htc Droid Eris - Low Volume On Audio Jack / Make It Loud

Anyone noticed that when you use a headset connected to the wired audio jack, the volume for calls is low? Listening to music etc. It's fine. Also, my ad2p headset is good for calls and music.

Compared to my iphone, phone calls on this jack are far too quiet. I've tried multiple wired headsets including the one that came with my iphone and the bose ones sold in the verizon store. Any ideas?

Htc Droid Eris - Pictures Associated With My Contacts Pixelated / Fix It

I just got my eris a few days ago. The ota push has already updated my phone. I'm in the process of loading everything (and then i'll search for a backup app to save it - ugghh, tedious). But i noticed that the pictures associated with my contacts are pixelated - despite them being in high resolution.

Is there a reason for this and/or a fix?

Htc Droid Eris - Phone Message Program Crashing / Cause Of It

I just got my girlfriend an htc droid eris on monday and so far she's really liking it. Hasn't downloaded anything yet other then advanced task killer (free) but still, she's liking it.

Well today she's been sending a few text messages earlier this morning and everything was fine, but then last this afternoon she's tried to send text messages and it acts as if it's going but when she tries to close the application it pops up a message stating: "sorry! The application messages has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. " Then she has an option to "force close" to get rid of the box. Whatever texts she send appears to be undelivered. It's done it a few times already.

Any suggestions on what could be causing it? I'm going to have her power cycle the phone but didn't know if there was anything else?

Htc Droid Eris - Free App To Use Internet For Syncing Files Between Laptop And Phone

Is there a free app that will use the internet for syncing files between my laptop and my eris?

It seems a shame to need to plug in a usb cable, turn on wi-fi, or pair the two with bluetooth (if the eris even supported that profile), when both machines are connected to internet all the time.

Htc Droid Eris - Voice To Text And Punctuation

I got the 2. 1 ota on friday and have been playing around with this feature all weekend. Very cool stuff. But. It's not capitalizing the first letter of each sentence, or putting in a period, or making "i" upper case, etc. Please tell me there's a setting for this somewhere that i can't find. No way could the developers of this leave out something so obvious and basic.
