    There is no ringtones folder in my Itunes so I can't upload any songs to use for ringtones for my Iphone 4 S. I went to edit and preferences and there is no "ringtones" option to check.

    I believe you have to get one first for "Tones" to pop up (app ringtone), which you still won't be able to use itunes music after by just uploading song or dragging it.// OR, i know you can make your own in GarageBand. <(use itunes library for that)
    BTW, I used a free app called "Ring.Tones'' before using GB, and it was kinda of a hassle with e-mailing it and syncing, but if you don't have GB, that's an idea.

    You have to have ringtones in order for them to show up in iTunes. The way I used to make them which I havent done in awhile is pick your song. Make sure it is in .m4a format. Copy it to your desktop, open it in QuickTime cut it down below 30 seconds I usually do 28 or 29 to be safe. Save it is as an .m4a file. Ten change the extension on the file from .m4a to .m4r. Drag it into iTunes and voila a ringtones folder should appear with your newly made ringtone. There may be easier ways to do this now but that's how I've always done it. I used to have an Automator script to do it for me but not sure where I put it.

    In GarageBand? If yes, You have to; Share> Send ringtone to itunes. Not drag it. Or, was you replying to CRIIM44?
