    How long is the ringtone? Make sure to keep it under 30 seconds.
    Besides drag-drop, what happens if you do a "right-click - open with - iTunes"?

    Try using Import from the menu. Or copying the m4r files into your iTunes music folder then re-open iTunes.

    The ringtones are 30 seconds and under only.
    when i right click on the file and open with itunes, it doesn't do anything. It doesn't even play in itunes...

    Did you convert them to aac in itunes?
    Do you have a ringtones folder in your itunes directory?
    What happens when you drag the file into the itunes library?

    Yes, I do. The only ringtones I have in the folder is the ringtones from when I have Itunes 9 only, but now that since I've updated to Itunes 10, it wouldn't copy itself when i drag it into Itunes.

    iringer

    The best and free way to place any format music or tones onto an iphone to use as a ringtone is by using the the free program "iringer"

    1 Just download iringer
    2 import tone or music
    3 export to itunes
    4 open itunes and tick in ringtones under the tab.
    5 sync phone and its available under tones custom

    JOB DONE :D:D

    After you add the .mp3 to iTunes and convert to .m4a, what do you do next?

    1. find the song
    2. rename extension to *.m4r
    3. play it in itunes

    now it appears in your rintones tab

    you may want to change the song EQ to trebble booster before converting it if you want a really loud ringtone.

    I'd go for bass reducer, which will give the track more volume before distortion on iPhones small format speaker.

    You haven't confirmed how you got to the point of having the .m4r files... give some more details on what you've done so far.

    Actually, I was asking the OP to document his steps in ringtone creation. I have no problems with making ringtones.
    But thanks anyway.
