Adding a new notification sound

I have a Galaxy A01 phone, and I'd like to add a new notification sound that I downloaded to the list.  Alas, I can't paste it into the right folder.  I know that I can always hook my phone up to my Linux computer and use root access to do it, but I'd like to know how it can be done using only the phone itself.  Is there a way?

If you'll go back and read the first post in this thread, you'll see that I have a Galaxy A01 phone.  Asked and answered.

I certainly did not want you to have to repeat yourself.. My system is not letting me go back that far in this thread. I would recommend contacting Samsung about this. The manufacturer will know all about what can and can't be done on their phone. Their number is 800-726-7864 or you can go to: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/contact. *Melissa

Why would I want to do that, after I've already accepted an answer as correct and have stated that everything's working just fine now?

Thank you, but telling me where it is in a Pixel doesn't help me when I don't have one.


The location of the ringtone folder has basically been the same since Android 2.0 including across multiple manufacturers of Android phones. If you can't find it, you aren't looking in the right place.

I can't see your folder system. I don't have a Samsung phone currently, but I have used one in the past. Those ringtones I showed in the image have been transferred from a HTC DROID Eris, HTC Aria, HTC Thunderbolt, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One M7, Motorola DROID Turbo, Moto X 2013, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Moto X 2014, Pixel 1, and finally a Pixel 3a.

If I were adding a new ringtone, I wouldn't be asking here, because that folder's easily found and new files added there show up right away.  I want to add a new Notification sound and replace the current one with it and don't understand why putting it in the right folder in the same way that other files are set doesn't make it available.
