Re: is there anyway to get a call tone for my HTC Mogul...
You need to pick a tone/mp3 you have on your computer and convert it to a .wav file with any of the free programs you can find via searching on google or softpedia.com. Once you have it as a wav file you need to move it to your phone (plug in your phone to the computer via usb cable, open my computer and click on the "Mobile Device"....then click the windows folder which should be listed after you click on the Mobile device) and place the file directly into the windows folder. After you've moved the file to your windows folder on the phone...unplug the phone and go to where you chose you ringer and you'll see the new tone listed.
There might be easier ways but this is the most direct way I found.
Re: is there anyway to get a call tone for my HTC Mogul...
There's a much easier way if you have the HTC media player: 1) Copy the MP3 or WAV file to the storage card or device memory via the ActiveSync method above. 2) Open the song/file in the HTC Audio Manager program 3) Use the right hard key for options and choose Set As Ringtone 4) You can choose to make it your ringtone as is, or trim it -OPTIONAL- 5) Use the left hard key to select Trim 6) Select what part of the song you want to use by dragging the sliders or using the arrows to set the seconds. 7) Press the left hard key for OK
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Connect your MP3 player to the computer. Some MP3 players connect directly to a USB port, while others connect to a USB port by way of a specific USB connector that comes with the MP3 player. Open the folder on the computer that contains the music files you want to transfer. This is usually the "My Music" folder; available from the "Start" menu, but it can be any folder where you save your music files. Scroll down to the song you want to transfer to the MP3 player. Right-click on the title. When the options are displayed, click on "Send To." Scroll down the "Send To" options and select your MP3 player. This can be listed as your MP3 player's name or as "Removable Drive." Click on this selection. Continue this process until you have transferred all songs that you want to your MP3 player.
--**Windows Media Player**--
If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.
The subscription/license on the songs could have lapsed, or you downloaded tracks that have play rights (will play on your computer) but not transfer rights (transfer rights allow you to play a particular song on an mp3 player). Songs that are in true mp3 format will not give you such problems.
As the question was stated, that is the best answer I can give you for now.
The songs that you transferred have a DRM license on them that does not have transfer rights (i.e.: the songs you downloaded can be played on a computer, but cannot be transferred to an mp3 player). The GoGear is giving you this message in hopes that you will Sync it with Windows Media Player and acquire the said transfer rights.
If you download songs that are in true mp3 format, you will not have this problem. Also, if you choose a music service that allows mp3 transfer at your subscription levwel, and continue to pay for that subscription every month, it will also clear your problem.
Some music files are in a DRM-protected WMA or AAC format that does not allow you to transfer the songs to certain mp3 players, even though the songs will play fine on your computer. To get around this problem, make sure that you buy a subscription level that has transfer rights - or, better yet, only download songs that are in true mp3 format. Songs in mp3 format do not have copy-protection on them, so they will never give you error messages, headaches, etc.
Each mp3 player can only play songs in certain formats. A Philips GoGear, for instance, can't read iTunes format. Some players cannot read DRM-encrypted WMA files, which is what most music services use. When you load a song in the wrong format to an mp3 player, the song appears to transfer, but the mp3 player won't actually play it. The best workaround for this problem is to only load songs that are in true mp3 format - they are accepted by 99% of digital audio players. If you give us your manufacvturer/model #, and music service name, we can tell you exactly which formats your player plays.
The songs are in the wrong format - it does not recognize iTunes songs or DRM-encrypted songs which do not have "transfer rights" (many msuic services - especially free ones but also paid ones - give you WMA's that have "play rights" -i.e. you can play them on your computer; but if they do not have transfer rights, they will show up in your player, yet not play correctly/skip).
Transfer only songs that are in Mp3 Format and you will never have this problem.
If you find that you are transferring songs to the mp3 player, and that they are not showing up when you disconnected them from the computer, then the songs are in the wrong format somehow - WMA files are the problem type - read my 2-part article in tips & tricks on Song formats and how to change them
