I used ES File Explorer to copy all my OGG files in system/media/audio to external SD then used Windows explorer to copy the files to my PC. I then did the opposite process to transfer the OGG files off my PC to a new phone (have to mount RW internal storage so ES File Explorer could overwrite any duplicate OGG files.) None of the OGG files I transferred will play. However, the OGG files in the Internal Storage Ringtones directory all play fine and they appear as duplicate ringtones.

Does the copy process screw the OGG files up or can you just never overwrite files in the System > Media location and get them to work?

Seems I should just go delete all the ringtones in the System > Media location to remove the dupes and only work from the Internal Storage > Ringtones directory assuming I have all the system ringtones also in the directory.

Bizarre

Hey bro.
You need to change permissions for the .ogg files you put inside system/media/audio. Set permissions to -rw-r--r-- (644) then reboot.
