I used AVS Audio Converter. Just made another one in AVS with a setting for mobile. They are 500Kb files. Put them on the card and after tapping on it, it played. Assigned to alarm it did work but the previously assigned sound could also be heard. Put the files within windows and hey presto. It all worked with receiving text and alarm,
The wife is a happy bunny now with her reminder.
Many thanks for your advice. Iím sure there will be more questions later.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I already have this phone so why would I contact you?
no one that work for there money should buy this phone from someone selling from an e-mail address. buy from a htc dealer, not a con man.

let's start with format.
what program did you use for the mp3 to wav conversions?
when you tap the files in the phone "file explorer" dose it play or do you get the same problem?
an old but good ripper/converter is "CDex"

Anonymous, 05 Dec 2009ANTHONY,Can i install applications in the memory card?yes you can install programs to memery card. pick that option when the installation ask, where to install.
tip... don't install drivers, or programs that start with the phone on a card because if the card is not in or you have it in "drive mode" you could run into problems
hey...is it true that HD2 failed software tests and kept on crashing...
user, 05 Dec 2009I used HD2 for 1 hourok pro user of touch screen phones. I asked who you were telling the screen is no good? not how long you use it. are you talking to the people that already own and like the phone? or the people like your self that already know they not going to buy this phone no matter what any one says?

To those who have iPhones, 5800's etc, and are happy with them - good for you. But if you have nothing good or useful to say, please read and adhere to the posting rules!!
Anthony, 05 Dec 2009You are on the right track for the sound being in the windows folder. But what you were doing ... moreThank you Anthony. Converted mp3 to wav, put it on the card and windows folder, managed find it to add it to text and alarm but it would not play. All others would play when you tap them except new ones.
I can only assume that itís the size or the type of file that is the problem. Unfortunately I canít extract a working one to see how they were made such a small size.
You are too silly to compare 5800 with the worlds fastest and best phone. i pity you u bought the wrong phone..lolz
Anthony, 05 Dec 2009are you saying this to people already using the phone? lolI used HD2 for 1 hour
user, 05 Dec 2009Capacity touch is terrible in WM deviceare you saying this to people already using the phone? lol

Go have fun with it now.
Note.. The files donít have to be in the windows folder, you can put it in the root of the memory card.
Only the alarm clock sound you want needs to be in the windows folder.
One more thing... for caller ID to work right out of the box your #ís have to be saved like this +# ### ###-#### not like ###-####

There is also an album art icon on the top left of the play. Tapping this will let the player download album art for your music. If it has to download allot of art it will take some time. So just leave it and let it do its work
First, I would like to thank Anthony and others for their valuable time and input. I have read most of the post and try to learn from them. I now have the HD2 and like it, though itís quite a learning curve.
My wife has one too and the only thing driving her mad is the fact that she cannot add her own sound to alarm and text message. All we know that these sounds reside within the windows folder. Donít even know what file extension they are. Tried copy and paste mp3 file but they donít work.
I anyone has any idea how to overcome this, would be very much appreciated.
