When I go to set an alarm or ringtone on my J3 I can only choose from my Google Drive, and even then these won't work and it goes to the default tone. What can I do to change this so I can use downloaded music or Google Drive files?
Solved! Go to Solution.

To set you need to do this
Ringtones and Sounds
Choose a ringtone for incoming calls.
Add a Ringtone
When you select a ringtone, either from the settings menu or from Contacts, you can add a custom ringtone.
IF YOU CAN NOT DO THIS you will have to reset the default for the sound location (shown bellow)
Go to Settings > Apps > All Apps > and click the top right corner one with three dots..
Click it > Reset Preferences Apps > and a window will appear .
Click > Reset Apps
Now when you go to set the alarm it will start like I said at the top of the post (make sure to click sound picker)

While changing ringtone (mp3 stored in phone) by mistake I selected "one drive".
In which login etc asked and I did.
I am not able to come back for selection of " Sound picker" as suggested.
Request your help regarding to come back to ringtone setting by selection of SOUND PICKER option.

Can't change either.
Had my own ringtones (mp3) for the last couple of years. Suddenly, some weeks ago, they stopped working. I guess it was after an update of the underlying android version (currently running 7.0, Galaxy S6).
When I try to select a ringtone with the sound picker, I just get an empty list. Sound Picker does not show any sound file of my device. But I have several on it.
Also, "Samsung Music" does not show any sound file. I have even copied the ringtone mp3 files to the folder "SamsungMusic", but without success.
When I look at my internal memory using the file manager, I can see the sound files (in folder "music") as well as the ringtones (in folder "ringtones" and in folder "Music/Ringtones". When I click on them in the filemanager, they play (using "google play music"). So the sound files are ok.
I have already tried with resetting the preferences app, but also no success.
Any Idea what's going on?

I made the same mistake by choosing file manager to manage ringtones by mistake. If you delete the file manager App you can then get access to the default ringtones - stupid I know - but it worked!
