    whats the best way to save some MP3 files on RAM rather then on the SD card?

    I want to use mp3 files for alarms via butler but i would rather put in ram incase the treo looses connection with sd card

    i tried emailing them to myself and smsing them to myself and neither are working

    i also emailed and saved to card then tried to copy to ram, still cannot find

    cant put mp3 on RAM.. grrr

    should i try to hotsync?

    Try FileZ or resco explorer. RingCare & Buzz will do it too.
    I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by fleeing the scene of the accident!

    I was able to find in a rescoexplorer folder in ram, moved to built in folder called audio... butler now doesn't show file when I select internal... only shows the two mp3 files that are on ROM

    The only file types that can go in RAM (with Palm OS) are .prc, .pdb, and the obsolete .pqa, unless your device has a "virtual SD card" partition in RAM.

    i converted the mp3 files into pdb files and all is working ok now on ram, now i have 3 pdb files on ram to use for my alarms, incase the phone looses the card

    As long as the MP3s are using a constant bitrate you can use either MiniTones or MusicTones on your Treo to just clip the portion of teh MP3 you want to use. This can save a lot of space.

    Audacity rocks! I do most of my transfers to the device via ActiveSync.

    Want unlocked CDMA Phones with an open Network?
    See what is happening in Washington to make this happen.

    is that what it is??!!!

    I thought it was 256 vs 128, when all along it was constant vs. VBR.

    Thank you, thank you, and thank you!

    Oh yeah, Minitones rocks!
