    Cool Ringtone help

    I am new with Iphone. And to be honest I am not an expert in electronics.
    I just bought two ringtones from Itunes and when I downloaded them into my PC they went into my music file. I synced my ipod and they did not go to ringtones. I want to load one for my text messages and the other for my answering calls. Can anybody tell me what I did wrong. In another words. What is the right procedure to download them and to go to the right place (ringtone folder). To a point I ended up deleting them. Thanks in advance for the help I can get out there. By the way I went to a couples webpages to find out a procedure and what I got was a virus. Meaning I would not want to go to a webpage I do not know. Thanks

    Are you sure they are ringtones and not songs? Ringtones have to be in m4a format while songs are mp3's.

    You can create ringtones in iTunes using any song in your library.

    Clickeds on link above for creating ringtones in iTunes, but page no longer exists.

    I have created a ringtone (using an app, not iTunes), and have it saved as .wav, .m4r, and .m4a. Apple technician told me to save ringtone as .m4r and simply drag it into Tones file in iTunes Library on my PC, from which it can be synched with my iPhone's "Sounds" settings. But when I try to drag and drop, the tone file doesn't show up in the destination folder. Does anyone know how to make this ought-to-be-simple process actually work?

    You drag the m4r file on the top left in itunes where it says Library, in the music section and when you click the tones section you should be able to see it there. Once you have all the tones there, you can click on your device, go to the tones tab and check whichever tones you with to sync and click apply

    Thanks, iMarilina ... I will try that. I've been trying to drag it directly to the Tones folder, and it doesn't work.

    iMarilina --

    Thanks so much for trying to help, but it's still not working. I have tried dragging the m4r files into "Library," into "Music", and into "Tones". Nothing happens. All drag, no drop. In fact the entire Library section in the upper left seems to be dimmed. I can't drag anything to it--although I have no problem playing what's already there.

    Any ideas why iTunes isn't working right on my computer (Dell Latitude D630, running Windows XP)? I wish Apple would come up with a way of directly synching your devices that ndidn't involve going through iTunes, which is a really poor, counter-intuitive, and user-unfriendly application.
