    I followed some guides to put my mp3 into iTunes, then select start-stop time between 40 seconds (also 30 seconds), then Export to AAC, renamed file to .m4r and then put file into "Ringtone" section of my iPhone.

    After that I choose Sync, but when I go to my iPhone I can't see the new ringtone but only the default ones.

    What's wrong I done??

    There are a couple apps that help do it. I use make them manually like you, forgot how I did it :(

    But, it was hit or miss. The apps helped. But then I just bought them off store----

    I did exactly THE SAME as video!

    The song is listed on iTunes/Ringtones of my iPhone, but there isn't on Ringtones of Settings in my iPhone.

    Garage Band is the easiest way to make custom ringtones. you can record your own, or use music from you phone

    I believe the hard limit is 30 seconds. Anything beyond that won't work.
