    The only thing I can think of would be for me to send you the Wav or Mpg file and you see if you can get it to convert to a could be my computer????

    Have you tried (as mentioned before) to remove the other 'original' files in Itunes and import into library. I have had similar problems and this solved it right away. the M4r file ws placed directly in the ringtones folder

    It's not you computer, because I'm having the EXACT same issue. I tried everything, no success...

    I had the same problem. I could find my m4r "ringtone" in the "recently added" Tab. Here's how you do it properly:

    Choose a song, convert it to 44,100khz 16bit Wave!!!! (thats the key) I used the SWITCH CONVERTER, which I cannot find in the AppStore now, but I'm sure any other will do just fine. So, convert the song from your iTunes Libary into 44,100 khz, 16bit. (See program preferences for the output format).

    My Ringtone maker did not accept *.wav so I had to convert the file to *.mp3 before I could use it. Sync the phone so the song is on it. Open the Ringtone maker and edit the song as desired. Save/export it (I simply save the ringtone file on my desktop)

    If you now drag the *.m4r file into iTunes, it will appear in the Ringtones tab.

    I was having the same problem. So I was reading this thread to help troubleshoot. I know I'm a little late but just go to and select create a ringtone and upload the mp3 version of the ringtone you made and myxer will make it into a ringtone format that itunes will recognize automatically.

    hey dear that super..the path is C:\Users\(Name)\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Automatically Add to iTunes


    if you have installed software in its default place.


    just copy the files there. auto adding will happen...

    Hey Everyone,

    I was having difficulities moving my .m4r file into the tones folder too... Apparently all you need to do is delete the shortened version of the file out of your library... I did this and it worked straight away.


    I followed these steps - ID=1&secureFlag=false&segment=consumer&TIMEZONE_OFFSET=&CMD=VIEW_ARTICLE&ARTICLE _ID=20265


    Hope it helps.

    Stesell's right - if the .m4r isn't importing into iTunes then try deleting the 30s .m4a version and then importing the ringtone.  Drag and drop onto the Tones group and it works!

    Thanks Stesell - this was driving me nuts until I saw your comment on this thread.

  • PSProf Level 1 (0 points)

    worked.  Just delete the originals. THX!

    What are you all doing?


    Don't need to import or export anything. Don't need to fiddle with or customise anything


    Don't need RingMaker. Played with it. Edit the sound.

    No music on my little phone. It's not used for that. I randomly found a tiny sound I like which is perfect. Made it an m4r file it is the only sound on the phone. There it is. Look at the Music. There it is. It plays. It does. Done.Apple's closed list of dismal sound. You have to be a 120-year-old granny to like that. It renders  the phone useless. Cannot answer any call. All I want is that sound I have and can play. I want the phone to make that sound when I get a call. The time to smash the phone.


    Can you see? It's not possible. The file has a name. It's not available in the list. Where's the hardware on the chip which can play a sound, but cannot do that associated with phone function to serve the needs to combine the sound with an event such as a phone call. Allocate. Huh??

    Even  had same issue, the best thing is as you( adityanyana, said , copy the files to the directory c: or d, or e, where  Itunes is installed .

    for mac users, follow the step,

    after converting files, Go to finder-> Music- in search  type "iTunes"- then click "Automatically Add to iTunes "and paste the file which u had copied. it wel get added to tones .
