Sound Files on External Memory Card Not Showing in Android Notification Sounds Menu

Trying to add a custom notification to your Android phone but unable to find it if it's on you device's external memory card? It's probably due to your database being out of sync. Here's the fix:

  1. Open Settings - Apps
  2. Tap the 3 dots in the upper right corner
  3. Select Show System
  4. Scroll down to Media Storage and tap Storage
  5. Select Clear Data in that app's settings
  6. Reboot your Phone
  7. Wait a few minutes for the database to rebuild
Also, make sure sounds for notifications are stored in  /Notifications.  (Place alarm sounds in /Alarms and ringtones in /Ringtones).
