Nokia N85: Cannot set mp3 as Message alert or personal ringtones...

Hi I've had mt N85 now for less than a week, and when I first got it I could apply mp3s as message alerts and personal ringtones now I cannot ( I can set one for the general ringtone from the music player though). Exept for when I use “Audio Themes”(which only allows .aac), regardlesss of what path I take, IT ALWAYS ENDS IN ON CHOICE... Select tone: Off

I've tried...

Menu>Tools>Settings>General>Personalisation>Tones> Message alert tone>... Select tone: Off

Menu>Tools>Profiles>General>Options>Personalise>Me ssage alert tone>... Select tone: Off

It should also be noted that I can only select “Change” for the “Message alert tone” once. The second (and 3rd, 4th,...) time I try to “Change” the “Message alert tone” the phone gets stuck on “Opening” and I have to hit the cancel key, after which I must shut down the phone before I can select “Change” again for the Message alet tone”.

I'm scratching my head because I've already installed the latest firmware update hoping to solve this problem.

Any suggestions please?

I had this problem with mine stuck on "Opening..." I found out it was a "dodgy" MP3 that the phone couldn't read. If you've added some more MP3s recently it might be struggling to read one of those files. It might be worth moving some songs off of the memory card to work out which one is causing the problem.

Yeah, I loaded about 5 Gig of them over the last few days. I think the prob started after the Ls.

I'll give it a shot... Thnx.
