    Hi guys,

    for some reason the day after I got my iPod touch, the Clock application kind of broke and all of the alarm sounds disappeared. When I went to add an alarm, there were no sounds under the "Sound" menu item, it was just a blank list.

    This was before I jailbroke it so I have no idea why it did this. At the time I didn't think much of it and figured I could fix it later.

    So tonight I decided I would attempt to fix it and so far I haven't had much luck. I've searched through the iPod's filesystem trying to find a likely location (I figured the files may have just become corrupted or something), tried replacing the MobileTimer.app with the iPhone one (worked but didn't fix it) and I've also searched through the forums seeing if anyone else has had this specific problem. No dice.

    I'm fairly certain that on the iPhone they are stored under /Library/Ringtones and they are *.m4r files (the files in this directory had the same names as the alarm sounds ie. Time Passing). I tried creating this directory on the touch though and it didn't work.

    I really don't want to have to restore my touch because besides the problem with the alarms everything else is working great.

    So does anyone know - or can anyone have a look and tell me - where the Alarm sounds are stored on the iPod touch?

    Thanks in advance

    Bump for the day crowd.

    Seriously guys this wouldn't be so hard for anyone to do - all you need to do is SSH into your touch and then type the following commands:

    cd /
    ls -RFl > output.txt

    This will create a text file in / called output.txt, then you just have to sftp in, copy the text file from your touch to your computer and copy the contents of output.txt into your reply to this thread.

    If anyone could do this I'd be really grateful, it'll take you 5 minutes maximum!

    if its the same as the iPhone, they will be in
    everything in there is a .caf file which is basically just a .aiff file
