    Card Export II: Closest freeware I've seen is PFB (Palm File Browser). It has a component that runs on the PC, though, so it isn't a "true" alternative.

    Minitones: (for 650, 700p):

    "This small freeware app allows you to select a MP3 file and add it to your ringtone list in Sounds. It also features a file splitter so you can use a section of a song instead of the whole song. A drawback to this is that it copies the file to main memory and can be a memory hog. Usage of the files does not require the app to be installed.
    Note: This app does NOT convert a MP3 to MIDI. It only adds a MP3 into the sounds list."

    I cant use it on my 650 though, since as for some other people, it freezes while scanning the SD card for songs. This may be due to my 2GB card being crammed full. Doesnt freeze on my old 512MB card.

    I've used minitones with my 2GB card and my 4GB card without problems.

    Thanks. Reading over on Mytreo, it seems Minitones is rather variable in whether it works or not.

    Anyway, at the risk of veering even further off thread, I re-read the application description above and this pointed me in the direction of a solution to my problem. Since you only need Minitones to create the ringtone, I did this with my 512 card inserted, and then popped the 2gb card back in and the new ringtone works fine, since it is added to RAM.

    But I am actually more interested in having mp3 alarms than ringtones so I was a bit puzzled by the fact that while my song showed up in the sounds list for the inbuilt Calendar (in Prefs), it doesnt for DateBk6, which I actually use.

    Anyone understand this peculiarity?

    There are apparently 2 different MIDI sound files. One is called MIDI Ring Tones (creator ID MCnl) and the other is called System MIDI Sounds (creator ID psys). Bill Gamble explained it in this thread -

    Thanks for that usskaos1, it sounds like there's hope!

    But I didnt exactly follow the logic of Bill's advice in that thread you kindly pointed out:

    "The old alarm sounds are in System_MIDI_Sounds.pdb, creator id psys, and the Sounds database that you can manage is MIDI_Ring_Tones, creator id MCnl. After performing a backup, I renamed System_MIDI_Sounds to MIDI_Ring_Tones and changed its creator ID to MCnl...voila, there's Concerto."

    From the rest of that thread it would sound like the new sound (in this case, Concerto), would have been added to the manageable database, ie MIDI_Ring_Tones. In which case it would seem more logical to rename THAT database as (what I am inferring to be) the main System sounds database (System_MIDI_Sounds), rather than vice-versa.

    In any case I tried (using Filez) rebadging System_MIDI_Sounds as Bill did, without any success yet. However one thing I was uncertain about was managing the underscore characters in the renaming. In FileZ no underscores actually show up in the two original file names, so does anyone know what to do?

    cheers

    I'm not sure what you're trying to do, but my post was purely a method for making an old alarm sound available for management - in this case, available for sending.

    Thanks for reply, Bill. Basically I just want to have mp3's available for use as alarms in Datebk6. I thought that MP3 ringtones introduced by Minitones would do this but they must go to a location that's inaccessible to DateBk (and the inbuilt Calendar).

    Anyone know any way to achieve this?

    Cheers

    Geoff.

    PS Back to original thread topic:

    Dear Naked: if youre getting your 650 soon, then you wouldnt need mocean for basic mp3 play, since it comes loaded with Realplayer. Never heard of any freeware uninstallers, but would highly recommend laying down the cash for UninstallManager.

    I use Butler for a limited version of this. I set the Attention Grabber alert to the mp3 of my choice and the alarm sound for a DB6 calendar/todo alarm to "none". That results in a delayed playing of that one MP3 after the alarm dialog appears.

    Im pretty sure Lightwave can do it too. I used it for this a few years back on a trial basis when I was using Diddlebug a lot for countdown alarms. As I recall Lightwave could talk to any other prog on the treo. But I use PalmaryClock for my countdown timing now, and it can inherently talk to Ptunes and Realplayer

    DateBk MP3 alarms would be nice too, but its not such an important feature that I'd pay for and install a specialist MP3 manager or Butler.
