    Default Re: iTunes saying I bought a song in a mac version & won't let me create a second for a ringtone

    The way I've done it in iTunes in the past was

    1- select the song you want as ringtone

    2- Command and letter i for Info

    3-click Options tab

    4- enable a Start time and End time. Click OK

    now

    5- Convert the song to aac.

    6- drag that converted song to the desktop.

    7- change the extension of the song on your desktop to m4r. - this is the Tone extension that iTunes recognizes

    8- drag this m4r into iTunes

    9- it will now be in the Tones section of iTunes

    10- plug in iPhone and setup syncing Tones.

    11- go to Sounds on iPhone and select it as ringtone.

    Long convoluted process, but it's a free ringtone of your music.
