    thanks for your help, hope this reply wasn't too confusing!

    Everyone you have to check the box to manually manage music and videos. It will work perfect after doing that. Also in my case i have to make the ringtones under 40 seconds to work.

    Instructions:


    Select the song in iTunes that I want to use as a ringtone. Protected AAC files will not work.

    Right-click on the song and select Get Info

    Go to the Options page and select the start and end times for the ringtone, also use treble boost on the EQ setting and slide the volume slider to 100%

    Right-click on the song again and select Convert Selection to AAC

    Right-click on the converted song and select Show in Finder

    Drag the .m4a file from the Finder window to your desktop

    Go back to iTunes and delete the converted song from iTunes. If you skip this step, double clicking on the .m4r file to import the ringtone into iTunes will not work properly.

    Right-click on the song file on your desktop, select Get Info and change the file extension from .m4a to m4r.

    Open Finder and locate the Ringtones folder underneath your iTunes folder. The path should be /Users//Music/iTunes/iTunes Music/Ringtones. If you don't have this folder, create it.

    Drag the renamed song file from your desktop to the Ringtones folder in Finder.

    Double-click on the .m4r file now stored inside the Ringtones folder. iTunes should change to the Ringtones folder under Library near the top and start playing the ringtone.

    Drag the ringtone to your phone.

    ok i dont get it, i converted it and put it on my desktop and deleted it from itunes, but i am not getting the option to get info to change it from .m4a to m4r. ???? i just got the phone and i am no good with computers thanks in advance

    You have to make file extensions visible. Then you manually edit the m4a to m4r.

    Okay.. I got farther than last time. I was able to drag the ringtone to my phone (after making it 40 seconds). It shows up in the Ringtones folder under my phone in iTunes. But now how do I get to it ON my phone? o.O It's not under settings > sounds > ringtones.. and I've tried restarting the phone.

    I was told by AT&T when the 1st Gen came out that they would charge me 1 minute of airtime if my phone rang for over 30 seconds. So I make mine 25 seconds long.

    ..ohh, I figured out my issue! Even though I had 'manually manage music' checked, I still had to go in the ringtones tab and check 'sync ringtones' before doing everything. Works for me now.

    Right click on the file and select Properties. Then you will see the entire file name, including the extension, in the field up top. Then you can change m4a to m4r and click apply.

    Or.. if you WANT to have ALL file extensions displayed on every file (which I think is pretty handy), click on My Computer, then up top; Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab, and you're going to scroll down in the window to where it says 'Hide extensions for known file types' and UNcheck that and hit apply.

    Weelll.. I don't have a machine with Vista on it to dabble with. BUT, it's as easy as typing 'show file extensions in vista' into Google. :P lol

    Apparently you click the Layout button (to the left of Views) in any folder window. There you can select Folder Options, then click on the View tab, then uncheck 'Hide extensions for known file types'.
