Joan Ann I followed exactly what you told me to do but I cannot find my ring 
tone and message alert on profiles.  Maybe I am not looking in the right place. 
 I definitely copied my files to the Digital folder but I was a little worried 
at the time as there did not seem to be anything else in that folder. Should I 
have identified them by name or what?

  Hi Eleanor
  This may sound a little complicated but, I will try my best to explain this 
procedure to you.  
  I am using the e51 with talks but, I'm pretty sure the procedure for the n95 
is similar.
  Firstly, you need to install a program called Nokia PC suite on to your 
computer.  The version I am using is  There is a later version 
available but, I find this version quite accessible with jaws.  The 
installation is straight forward.
  The next step is to attach your phone to the computer using the USB cable.  
PC suite will start installing the driver for your phone.  This could take up 
to 5 minutes so, it is best to just let the computer work away on its own.
  When this has finished, you should launch PC suite from the desktop.
  Now, as I am using jaws, I press insert and page down and it tells me that 
"nokia e51 connected via USB".  I think this message is located towards the 
bottom of the screen.
  Now, given that you are successful in connecting your phone, you do the 
  1.  Find the ring tone and message alert that you want to use and copy them 
to the clipboard.
  2.  Go to windows explorer and under the list of drives, you should see one 
that says nokia n95 and select this.
  3.  Here, I get a list of 2 folders, phone memory and memory card.
  4.  Choose phone memory.
  5.  You now have a folder called Data so select this.
  6.  In this list of folders, there is one called sounds so, select this.
  7.  In this folder, choose "digital".  We will paste the files into this 
folder.  You can now disconnect the phone.

  Now when you go to profiles on your phone, the ring tone and message alert 
should be available for you to use.

  I'm sorry this is so long and I really hope it makes sense.  Feel free to ask 

  Joan Ann.

    Hi All
    Does anyone know how I can transfer two files (ring tone and message alert) 
from my PC to Mobile.  I will do this using a USB cable and have installed the 
necessary mobile phone software on to my PC so am all ready to go if someone 
can write out for me the various stages.  Once I have the music in a folder I 
then want to know how to put it in the ring tones folder, likewise with the 
message alert.  Now let's face it folks, I don't ask for much!!!!!!!!!  My 
phone is N95 but I guess it is the principal of the thing.  Brian has told me 
he has not transferred like this though I am aware he has a N95.  Actually 
maybe one does not even need the software when transferring files though now I 
am probably being stupid.  I hear sighted people talking about dragging and 
dropping which is the same as cutting and pasting so we must be able to do this 
with Talks.
