Hey Guys

well these are the steps ive taken...

Cut song to 20 seconds in iTunes, convert to ACC which made a copy of the song and i edited the name to ringtone, i then dragged the 20 second ACC file to desktop changed the file extension to .m4r and the icon changed to ring, then double clicked on it and it showed in ringtones folder ticked the song to sync in ringtones and once my iPhone had synced i checked and there is nothin there, however when i go into my ipod sections on iPhone the song is in there 30 seconds long ... pls help me out here, or if anyone has msn that can give me some support be great.

Cheers

what program are you using to clip the song down....don't clip it in iTunes
start with a .mp3 file clip it down to 30sec and save as .mp3 (I use Adobe Audition 1.5)
then add that .mp3 and convert it to AAC
you should now have "ringtonename.m4a"
change the extension to .m4r and click it to add to Ringtones folder
Sync

Edit: you may be doing this... hard to tell from your description:

I think the problem is you're not syncing it as a ringtone. When you have your iPhone connected to the computer, go to its tab in the devices section in iTunes (on the left), go to the ringtone tab (at the top now), and make sure you have your custom ringtones checked for sync.
