Raw sound file as ringtone

 Hi all,

I am using the following code trying to pull an .mp3 or .ogg file from
my raw directory and saving it to the sd card and activating it as a
ringtone. Although, it keeps failing for some reason or another and
doesnt actually copy the new file to the sdcard.

Any ideas please?

    public boolean saveas(int ressound){
         byte[] buffer=null;
         InputStream fIn =
         int size=0;

         try {
          size = fIn.available();
          buffer = new byte[size];
         } catch (IOException e) {
          // TODO Auto-generated catch block
          return false;

         String path="/sdcard/media/audio/ringtones/";
         String filename="priceringtone"+".ogg";

         boolean exists = (new File(path)).exists();
         if (!exists){new File(path).mkdirs();}

         FileOutputStream save;
         try {
          save = new FileOutputStream(path+filename);
         } catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
          // TODO Auto-generated catch block
          return false;
         } catch (IOException e) {
          // TODO Auto-generated catch block
          return false;

         sendBroadcast(new Intent(Intent.ACTION_MEDIA_SCANNER_SCAN_FILE,

         File k = new File(path, filename);

         ContentValues values = new ContentValues();
         values.put(MediaStore.MediaColumns.DATA, k.getAbsolutePath());
         values.put(MediaStore.MediaColumns.TITLE, "exampletitle");
         values.put(MediaStore.MediaColumns.MIME_TYPE, "audio/ogg");
         values.put(MediaStore.Audio.Media.ARTIST, "cssounds ");
         values.put(MediaStore.Audio.Media.IS_RINGTONE, true);
         values.put(MediaStore.Audio.Media.IS_NOTIFICATION, true);
         values.put(MediaStore.Audio.Media.IS_ALARM, true);
         values.put(MediaStore.Audio.Media.IS_MUSIC, false);

         //Insert it into the database

         return true;

I used a similar method in TapSound (on android market).
Didn't you forget android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE ?

1. What happens when network (GPRS) is not enabled, and you try to open connection?

I've been wondering this too.  I guess I assumed that if an
application has permissions in the manifest that the device will
automatically connect without prompting.


2. Content Providers and Network Requests

As per the subject, i am making an app that is dependent on data that
comes from a network request.
I was using the UserTask class (Made by Mr. Romain Guy) to make the
network calls and get my data and everything worked.

But now, i want the data from this app to be available to other apps
as well and thus, the only way that data could be shared between
applications is by using a content provider (thats what i have read so

My question was: Is it possible to use a thread or the UserTask class
inside a Content Provider and if yes, then since the request to the
server can take a long time, how do we change the query method of the
content provider to handle such a delay as it is suppose to return a
Cursor object.

In my initial approach, i was using a listener that took care of
updating the Application when the data was available but i am not
aware of a way to use a listener with a Content Provider.

Any help or ideas would be helpful.
