    Custom Ringtone not working

    I'm using the latest version of DefX MIUI. I've attempted to use a custom mp3 I downloaded for my ringtone, but it simply doesn't work. I can play the mp3 fine, I can even hear the sample when I'm selecting the ringtone in Sound Settings. When I get a phone call, though, I get the default ringtone for my MIUI theme.

    This is my first time trying to use an mp3 for a ringtone. I've used custom ringtones and notification tones before, like from Zedge, and they've all worked fine.

    Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!

    fwiw I usually set my ringtone from the music player and haven't had any issues. Might give it a shot.
    Check out my themes:

    Simple Sideways - MIUI lockscreen - Simple Sideways Dark - Touch of Green - Vortex RC1 - Christmas theme (in case you miss it) - Vortex RC1

    jeems, I can't find that file in my Music player. If I open it in ES File Explorer, though, it plays in whichever player I send it to (default MIUI Music app or the ES Media Player).
    Should I try setting it as the default ringtone in the default file manager instead? Would that really make a difference?

    It's certainly worth a shot. I don't know if I've tried it from there. When it's playing in the miui music app can you get it to show in a list, like the playing list? If it shows in that list while playing, just long press it and there should be an option like "set as ringtone".

    No, it doesn't show in any list. It shows the play/pause, back, and forward buttons, and nothing else. The menu key doesn't do anything either. I even copied the file to sdcard/MIUI/music/mp3, with no luck.
    Well, the stock file manager doesn't seem to work either. It shows the file under the "Music" tab, but it still doesn't show up under the Music app. It doesn't give me any options to set as ringtone, either.
    Weird.

    Aha! I set it using the ES Media Player and it seemed to work -- at least with my test calls. We'll see if it sticks around.

    Did you try the back button (hard key) once it starts playing? That usually takes you back into the app. Then go to playlists, playing. I'm digging here, but something has to work!

    Sometimes it still refuses to read from the SD card for a ringtone and just reverts to the stock tone. Another way to fix the problem would be to just drop your ringtone file into /system/media/audio/ringtone (or alarm,notification) and then you should be able to select it in the "stock" list of ringtones
