Question [Q] Can't see any ringtones at all, only "None"

I can't see any ringtones for selection on my Nexus 5, only "None" is listed.
Under settings -> sound -> phone ringtone, "unknown ringtone" is listed.

Using the FX file manager app, I can see the Ringtones folder, and it's got a bunch of my own mp3s that I put there.

Yesterday I did a "clear app data" to try to resolve a different problem, and this may have caused it?

How can I get the phone to list all available ringtones again under 'settings'? Thanks for any help.

Did you go back under the folder location to verify that they are still there besides the MP3s you put? Also, ringtones are generally .ogg files, so the custom songs you add must be .ogg files and reboot to show/work.

Thumbs up reboot did the trick!

the Ringtones folder only shows my own mp3s/oggs, not the stock ringtones.

anyway, i rebooted the phone and afterwards i was able to select my own ringtones, which incidentally can be in mp3 or ogg format.
(i tried this)

Very good. Reboot generally needed to include ringtone data.

The end is near, into the Nexus we go!
