    I've been using itunes to make ringtones for the longest.

    1. Add song to library
    2. Right-Click on Song and select Get Info
    3. Go to the "Options" tab and enter "Start Time" and "End Time" of your choosing and hit "OK"
    4. Right-Click on the song again and select "Create ACC Version"
    5. Your XX second ringtone will appear and then drag to desktop and change the file extension from .m4r to .m4r. Double click on the file and it should go straight to your "Ringtones" section in itunes.
    6. There you go!! Easy as 1-2-3-4-5. lol

    Just don't forget to change the "Start Time" and "End Time" back to the original settings.

    ------------------------

    1. First get the song you want to make the ringtone from.
    2. Open it with quicktime pro (or any other editor)
    3. Cust out the section you want as the ringtone and save it as a new mp3.
    4. Import it into iTunes
    5. in iTunes go into
    Preferences > Advanced > Importing

    Set to Import using: AAC encoder 128Kbps

    6. Right click on the file you want as a ringtone and select

    Convert selection to AAC
    Your file will now be converted to an AAC file. (appears in iTunes under your original file)

    7. Right click on the new file, click on show in finder (or open folder on windows)
    8. You will now see your AAC file, all you have to do now is change the file extension from .m4a to .m4r
    9. Drag the file out of the folder to the desktop, then drop it back into itunes.
    did this last night to get my old blackberry ringtones onto my iphone. worked great!

    easiest thing that I found to create free ringtones out of songs I already have is www . audiko . net

    you upload your track to the website, clip the song into the 30 sec segment you want (with or without fading at beginning and end), after clipping the song is processed and will download to your computer and show up in itunes and start playing.

    then all you have to do is plug in your phone and sync the new ringtone you just made. presto!

    Works for me and I didn't have to do any of the messy changing stuff in itunes

    If you have a Mac, then you can go into the App Store and get an app called "Ringer". I can't remember what it costs.. I think I got it for free when the App Store first came out for Macs. You can then use all of the files in your library to convert them to ringtones for free. I use it all of the time and love it!

    I've used SmartConverter (Mac)... then simply change the extension of the output file from .m4a to .m4r.

    Works great.

    I use Phonezoo.com to make and transfer my own ringtones. The website's free software is super easy to use and I have made alot over time. I used to use XRingtone before it wasn't freeware anymore

    You can trim songs by changing the "Start Time" and "Stop Time" by right clicking the tracks in iTunes and selecting "Get Info". After you have trimmed the clip, create an AAC version of the song, and change the file extension to .m4r and add it to iTunes. You can change the "Start Time" and "Stop Time" of the original track back to normal after this.

    I've been using RMaker. There is a free version (Which I use just fine) and a pro version for more customization and options.

    It's too bad it wasn't easier because there aren't alot of ringtone/alter options on the iPhone.

    After I change the file ext to .m4r and dump it into itunes, i keep getting an dialogue box pop up saying it couldn't be copied to iphone because the original file could not be located.

    Ideas?

    Cause I'm fresh out.

    I forget where I saw it but there's a great youtube video on making custom ringtones.

    My only question is...even though they show up in my "tones" tab in my phone, when I actually look for them in the phone they're not there.

    Whats up?

    ...and I'm a jerk because it took a minute to load Freiteez's video above this. GOOD JOB!

    Original question still valid though.

    I made a few custom tones following the suggested methods. AAC format, clip under 30 secs and an m4r ext. I made 6 or 7 tones and they all seemed to be loaded on my iphone. However, when I actually go on the phone to look for them, only 2 are there.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks
