Default Adding sounds to kitkat

Added ringones and other sounds to the media subdirectories wirh root explorer but i can't use the added ringtones etc. In older versions of android that's all i had to do. Do i have to modify something else like list the added ringtones somewhere? I checked the media subdirectories with root explorer and the files are there.

I figured this out -- I added sounds to the various subdirectories on the internal sd card like "Alarms" "Ringtones" "Notifications" and then they appear in settings. They don't appear if I add them to the subdirectories in system/media/audio. I don't know why.
