My custom notification sounds are not showing up to be selected on my Gal A50

Because this thing is absolutely driving me nuts for quite some time i ended posting here before. 

I have a Samsung Galaxy A50 for some time and however i try, check different settings or online documentation or tutorials. I just can't find a reasonable explanation as to why my custom self made loop notification sounds don't appear in the selection screen to be selected. 

I have installed several mp3 songs on it and i can choose them as a ringtone. But the 10 something custom mp3 sounds i installed are just never showing up to be selected. 

I tried moving them all to the notification sounds folder > nope

Moved them to the music/audio folder > nope

Triple checked every possible setting > nope

Converted all of them from mp3 to other file formats > nope

Installed Samsung music player and not only does he discovers all of them without a problem, all the clips play perfectly fine in it. 

So yeah what is wrong with this model that i can't customize my own mp3 notification sounds on it? I have been able to this on even older Samsung Galaxy models in the past?

Let's see if we can sort this out. I'm on a S24U, so not sure how much differs in the UI for a A50, so let's do this together :smiling-face: 

First of - you should have them in the "Notifications" folder as you said you tried, but make sure this is in the internal storage.

Then in the application you want to use the custom sound in, go settings, notifications, and sound and you should be prompted to pick a app for selecting the sound. I have Zedge, but for this you should use "SecSoundPicker" (native app for that).

 Then you should be able to see the files that you added to the internal notifications folder; 



If it doesn't look like this in your A50, could you share screenshots on what happens? (you can redact phone numbers or other sensitive data before sharing).
