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. Advice For First (Simple?) Non-Tutorial Project

Greetings, fellow beginners!

First question: I've done the Hello World and notepad tutorials, as well as
run through the quick tutorial <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6ObTqIiYfE>on
youtube by Dan Morril.  I've also read a bit of the Android fundamentals
materials.  Is this enough experience to make an application like the one
I'll describe below?

If not, what do you think I should read or try next?  If so,

The application I have in mind will be a counter triggered by users.  A user
will add themselves to the count, remove themselves from the count, and view
the count.

When a user adds or removes themself to the count...
- if possible, this will update the count on other instances for other

That's my first step for now.  The UI will be a ListView showing the counts
that users have added themselves to (once I create the means to have one
count, I will easily be able to scale the app to have "n" counts).  There
will be a button to add and remove the user.

Sounds reasonable, right?  Please let me know if this sounds difficult,
especially where the multi-device communication (in updating the counter) is
concerned.  Know of a library that I'll have to use, or have some general
advice for this?  Tell me! :)

Thank you for reading!
