Default ringtones changing to default after reboot

Just been having this issue lately where my custom ringtone and notifications change to the default after a reboot or after I connect micro usb to add files to the memory card. I cant seem to find a way to fix this. Just wondering if anyone has had this issue and how to fix it. Thanks in advance.

I have the exact same problem, I had some custom ringtones and suddenly for no reason started switching back to default. So I finally just did a factory reset now everything's back to normal.

I may have found the issue with mine. I recently started using an app called headset droid. Once I uninstalled the app most of my issue is gone now. My ringtones and notifications no longer reset when I reboot. They do still reset if if I connect my phone via micro USB and add transfer things to my memory card. I will try resetting my phone and reflashing my rom next to see if that solves the problem completely.

Default Solution for rooted user but please help for non-rooted

To start off I do not have my phone rooted, although I am thinking about it lol.

My ringtones and notifications changed every time I restart my phone. What I have tried is to change the ringtones and notifications folder location. It basically started right after I received the T-Mobile update software number 1.50.531.1

sdcard(root)/notifications
sdcard(root)/ringtones
and
sdcard(root)/media/audio/notifications
sdcard(root)/media/audio/ringtones

all the above methods work in the sense that the phone recognized the ringtones but every time I restart the phone it changes the ringtone and notification back to defaults.

I have searched for a solution the closest thing I have found was located here: https://code.google.com/p/android/is...etail?id=13413
The conclusion is to gain root access and move the ringtones and notification to the phone's internal system folder. Since I do not want to root my phone, is there a method to gain permission to move files to the system folder?

I really want to solve this problem so please let me know if there is a solution
Thanks from a noob

I fixed my issue by clearing the cache. I downloaded app called "app cache cleaner" than I cleared the rosie cache and boom it works woot

Anyone got an answer?
Is there an easy way to move ringtones/notification sounds to the phone memory without rooting?

Try adding your phone ringtone / notification sound this way

Settings-sound-phone ringtone-menu soft key-more ringtones-add ringtone
Then select the ringtone.

Also the similar way for notification sound..

This way you might not lose your custom ringtones when rebooted

That's how I assign them. I don't have the issue of losing them when rebooting, but I do have problems when I've connected my phone as a mass storage device as with the SD card unmounted (so it can be accessed by the PC) the phone can no longer see my ringtone/notification sounds.
Annoyingly downloading ringtones from HTC doesn't save them to the phone memory.

then you move it to memory...

move the required ringtones to /system/media/audio/ringtones
and similarly for notifications...use any file explorer...
