Am I crazy or is it now impossible to see whether or not a song is available for a ringtone from the new itunes store until you buy it? I recently purchased the Walkmen iTunes live album and ringtones are available for it from my iTunes but when i look at it in the store... no indication that it's available to make a ringtone. Is there something I'm missing? I just want to know if the songs are ringtone available before i buy them...

Mac OS X (10.6)

Just Talked to Apple Rep. He said they have done away with creating your own ringtones, now you have to buy them already made at a $1.29 each, but you can still make ringtones from the song that you have already purchased in the past in the music section with the bell beside it.

I don't believe you are crazy .. I just looked and the closest I could get to the classic view was +View -> Column Browser+

Once in the Column Browser, I looked under +View -> View Options+ and I see no option for view the ringtone icon.

I'll post back if I find anything on this.

In the meantime, check out http://audiko.net/ .. You can make your own there, or you can download ones others have made

    I sent feedback to Apple. The help page within iTunes still tells you to use View Options and then select Ringtone .. the Ringtone option appears to be gone.

    Thanks for the update. Have you been successful in finding what ringtones are available from iTunes? I searched for ringtones, but iTunes returns ringtone apps for the iPhone.

    In iTunes (Computer Version) all song purchaced in the past that could be converted into ringtones still can. Put you cannot purchase a song and convert it into a ringtone any more, now you have to perchase your ringtones on the iPhone by tapping on the iTunes app, the at the bottom of the screen you will see rintones or do a serch for an artist say DEVO first you will see Top Results, then Albums, keep scroling down until you see Ringtones.

    Thanks for the quick response everyone! But dog-gone-it why would they get rid of that feature? I LOVED making my own ringtones and now i'll have to do it the backwards way... at least it'll be free.

    You can still make custom ringtones in iTunes, just right click the song you want to make into a ringtone and press the create ringtone button.
