This guide will show you how to make iPhone ringtones using songs on your iTunes music library right from your Windows PC without installing any application (except for iTunes, of course) and without registering to any website or any premium text services. That means, everything is FREE!
Everything is done directly on your computer, you can do this even without internet connection.
This is for all iPhones (iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G or older) and for all iOS versions.
Here's what you need:
Computer running on Windows 7, Vista or XP with iTunes installed
Song(s) on your iTunes music library
Note: You don't need your iPhone yet until you're done making your ringtone and are ready to sync.
If you don't see the Ringtones list on your sidebar, don't worry. It will show up after you're successful in creating your first one.
Open iTunes (from your PC) and select any song from your music library.
Right-click on your chosen song then click on Get Info.
Click on the Options tab, at the top of info window.
Look for Start Time and Stop Time, and copy whatever is written in the Stop Time box (which is the full length of the song) to avoid messing up the original copy, coz you're gonna need to put it back later.On the video, the original length of my song is 5:48.055, but ringtones for iPhones could not comprise the full length of the song, it must only be around 1 to 30 seconds (though I'm not sure if 30+ sec will still work).
Shorten the song to acceptable limit (1 to 30 sec.).On the video I used the first 9 seconds, by changing only the Stop Time from 5:48.055 to 0:09.000.You may also choose the middle part of any song, say you can set the Start Time at 1:23.456 (or any time of your choice) and the Stop Time at 1:54.321 (or any time of your choice).
Click on OK to apply the changes.
Select the same song, click on Advanced from the Menu bar at the top of iTunes Window, then click on Create AAC version.Notice that the AAC version has shorter time than the original one.
Modify the original copy back to its full length (noted on step 4), then click on OK.
Right-click on the AAC version, then click on Show in Windows Explorer. A folder will open showing your two songs in file form, the original copy having the .mp3 file extension, and AAC version with .m4a.If you cannot see the file extensions, Go to Control Panel>Folder Options>View (tab)> and from there, remove the check beside the option saying Hide extensions for known file types. Click on OK to apply the changes. (Watch the video for clearer instruction.)
Change the .m4a file extension to .m4r.You may also change the name, but that's up to you. The important thing is to change the file extension.
Then Windows will ask:Just click on Yes.
Double-click on the modified file to add it to your ringtones list, and you're done!
The only thing you need to do now is to sync ringtones so you can use them on your iPhone.
WARNING-BEFORE YOU SYNC Syncing ringtones will affect the music library on the iPhone, so before you click the sync button, be sure to transfer all your purchased songs first (from iPhone to PC) so no song will be deleted. Or better yet, do this only when you're working on the computer where: you save all your songs, or; you regularly sync your iPhone.
Notes: This guide is intended only for iPhone users, because iPhones do not accept file types other than .m4r as ringtones.
This guide is intended only for Windows users. The guide for Mac users is written separately, with its own video.
Test the songs that are not playing on the iPod in iTunes and see if the original file is still playable on iTunes if the song still plays re-sync your iPod could be when iTunes copied the song it must have failed or timed out, if that fails re-syncing try restoring you iPod Nano i have had this problem before and I just re-synced and it worked fine!
i have an ipod touch and when i drag songs over like your talking about and its in the middle of syncing the song wont get put on the device til the next sync so let it sync up upplug it and then plug it back in and see if the songs start syncing to your device
I assume your iPod still functions OK as an MP3 player?
Are you wanting to automatically sync your iPod with your library, or drag the songs from your library onto your iPod?
You can modify the settings to auto sync or not, by attaching your iPod to your PC. In iTunes, highlight your device, and from the main window you can change the sync settings.
If this doesn't work, then try and reset your iPod - you do this by holding down the menu and center buttons until the "Apple" symbol reappears.
As a last resort (if the above doesn't work) you can restore your iPod, but this will set it back to it's factory state - wiping all of the music, videos etc off of your iPod (but it will not remove anything from your computer). In iTunes, select your device, and from the main window, click on the Restore button and follow the onscreen prompts.
Well, one way of fixing this can be to watch the files sync to your mp3 player and when it starts syncing the unwanted files, just simply press "stop sync". I think i know what you are using and i had the same problem at first. you will make a sync list and click sync but after that list if finished, it will sync the rest of the songs from your computer also, you can just wait for your wanted sync list to be finished and as soon as it begins to sync the unwanted media, just press stop. this wont harm your computer or your mp3 player.
most likely it requires windows media player version 10 or higher which unfortunately is not compatible with windows 98 so that way will not work. You may be able to bypass windows media player by going to the manufactuers website and downloading a specialized driver for windows 98 and then drag and dropping your music onto the pkayer if this doesn't work I am sorry
try reseting it. then resyncing your ipod. to reset it, simply push the middle button down, and the menu button at the same time. a few seconds later and the ipod should reset. then sync the song that had the problem onto the ipod and see if it works. (no point in syncing all your songs becuase if reseting it doesnt work you wasted alot of time syncing songs for nothing)
