adding non itunes ring tones

Other Apple Chat

Hi again. I recently downloaded some ringtones from another site and I am having trouble adding them to my tones folder on itunes through my computer. For some reason they are being saved in my music folder instead of my tones folder. I tried someone elses suggestion of adding them to the folder "automatically add to itunes" folder but they are still being saved with my music. The tones folder is still saying 0 items. What should I do?

The way I understand it is that the ringtones need to be in .m4r format. To do this, you will need to convert the files first into Apple Lossless .m4a format, then remove them from your iTunes library and change the file extensions to .m4r...then re-add them to the library. I'll figure out the easiest way to do this and put a guide together.
