Did you try restarting your phone ? – X10MiniPro Oct 28 '11 at 7:29
Yes I restarted my phone. – HSS Oct 28 '11 at 8:44

I also faced the same issue with the Stock Alarm. Stock alarm was not able to recognize the SD Card songs. I vaguely remembered the solution. Couple of restarts and removing the SD Card from the phone and plugging it again solved the issue fro me.

But now I installed Alarm Klock which has the option to see all the Songs on SD Card by Author and Album wise. It has vibrating feature which doesn't there in stock Alarm.

Thanks man, it worked pretty well. – HSS Oct 28 '11 at 9:24

There are a number of apps that will let you set pretty much any sound file (mp3, ogg vorbis, etc) as a ringtone or notification sound. Tone Picker is just one example.
