    in itunes, click the song you want to make a ringtone of. go into get info for the song and open up the song options and change the start and stop time of the song to what you want the ringtone to be. make sure you remember the normal start/stop time so the song isn't messed up. than right click the song and click convert selection to ACC and a new file will be created under the original. than delete the song from itunes but keep the file. change the extension of the file to .m4r, the itunes ringtone extension, add to itunes and it will be in the ringtones section of itunes. just add it to your phone.

    I disagree. That whole "Send to iTunes as Ringtone" process is EXTREMELY complicated. I think I had to hit like 3 buttons.

    I am going into "Get Info" and i swear I am looking like crazy and do not see any "File Name and Extention". I have the latest version of iTunes and Im running it on a PC.

    Sorry to be a bug, but its driving me nutz.

    Any ideas???

    sorry i didn't know it was a pc. you can't change the extension in itunes. you have to go to where the actual file is saved on your hard drive. right click the file and click rename and change the extension there. you need to have the extensions visible to do this. than re-add the file to itunes. here is a link on how to change file extensions in vista, i assume it is the same in XP. its the last question by the way.

    Success with mp.4r but wont transfer into Iphone 3G

    Greetings,
    I am using the latest Itunes and now have a ringtone folder in the Library and under my Iphone. I have a song in the Library ringtone folder, but it won't allow me to transfer to the Iphone folder. Any ideas folks? I'm running Vista and the song is full length, not 20 secs or so.

    Regards, Andy

    i must say garage band. but its very confusing and thats coming from a recording engineer who mainly works with nuendo and pro tools. I just have not taken the time to use garage band as it does so little when it comes to my daily stuff.

    You HAVE to try iringer www.iringer.net. Has everything you need NO changing file extensions, no converting to AAC, and you don't have to have bought the mp3 on iTunes (you know you can't convert to a ringtone in iTunes if you got the mp3 somewhere else, right?). Try it out. Works like a champ and its for Windows.

    Wow, very nice! I tried it with one of my songs, very cool. Then I just got lazy and searched for ones already made. I'll be using that a lot!

    Convert songs to IPhone ringtones

    Thank you for the tip. It worked and I have it in my Ringtones list. There is only one problem. When I sync my Iphone, that specific ringtone is not syncing along with the others, and it does to show in the list of ringtones on the syncing page. I have it selected though. What is happening?

    Can you help? :)

    I never had a problem syncing my ringtones. The ringtone has to be around 30 seconds long to work. If its the correct length I'm not sure what the problem is.
