Hi. I already have ringtones that I downloaded from elsewhere and I want to add them to my itunes and sounds on my phone. I have tried many different ways to add them but they are just not working. They are listed in my music folder so I guess they are already m4a formated. I do not know how I am supposed to change them into the m4r format. I bought them as mp3 and added them to itunes which converted them to m4a. What should I do to convert them to m4r and add them to my phone under sounds?
You need to change the extention of the files from m4a to m4r.
I do have my tones in a separate folder but they are still in mp3 format. When I added them to itunes I guess it made a double and the ringtones are in m4a format mixed in with my music. The tones in my ringtones folder are still mp3. So do I change the mp3 to m4r?
MP3 to M4R
.mp3 to .m4r
Do you know if iTunes manages your music manually or not?
iTunes can already convert mp3's to m4a's.
