    Transferring Downloaded Ringtones From Music Library to Ringtone Library



    OK. Im stumped. I bought some ringtones from the iTunes Store, naturally thinking they would be added to my iTunes Ringtone Library, to where I connect my i4 and sync and they would be added to my Ringtones folder on my i4. They were added to my Music Library instead. When I synced, iTunes DL them to my mp3s instead of my pre-installed ringtones. How do I move them out of my iTunes Music library into my iTunes Ringtone Library? Ive tried everything, you cant drag them, Ive tried, and while they appear there, the next time you open the Ringtone iTunes Library they are not there. Any suggestions?

    When iTunes is open be sure

    1. In preferences Ringtones is selected to show in the left menu
    2. You should be able to drag in that menu
    3. When syncing be sure the Ringtones tab is set to sync

    PC Windows 7. Im lost using iTunes. The Rintones preference is listed, I open up the recent download folder containing the ringtones and try to drag them to the ringtone library, but they will not drag.

    I'm not very good with W7 clicks b/c I've never used it for more than a minute or two but open iTunes and use the top menu to import and when selecting the file or folder chose the location where you know the tones are. See if using the import feature will work?

    File/Add To Library

    I think is the selection and menu top left of iTunes when it open

    Here's what I ended up doing that worked. I know there's a better way and due to my iTunes noobness I couldnt figure it out, but this worked-

    Custom ringtones

    Download from iTunes store to iTunes library, will probably load to music library
    Right click on each one and change the AAC code
    Then open split window between iTunes and desktop home screen
    Drag each onto desktop
    Right click on them and select rename
    Change the file to read .mr4
    Then double click each ringtone and iTunes will open and download to the ringtone library
    Once that is done, you can hook the iPhone to iTunes and it will install them in a custom ringtones folder above your pre-installed ringtones
    Wow. What a hassle. Lol.

    Control panel-folder options-2nd tab, hide file extension has to be unchecked

    Or download iRinger for free. It converts any mp3 in your library and makes a 30 second ringtone and install right to iTunes ringtone folder. Thanks slr for the help!
