    CrazEtooN,

    Hey, just thought I'd give you, and anyone else this may help, an update on my situation. I found and fixed my problem.

    After much messing around with iTunes and trying to figure out why my iPhone 3g would only upload a few ring tones, and do multiples of the same song in some instances. I figured I would start from scratch and reinstall my iPhone through iTunes. However, every time I tried to do this, it would get through the reinstall about half way and then iTunes would tell me that my "iPhone is not responding". I did this 6 or so times before calling Apple tech support (thankfully I purchased the Apple Care Protection Plan with my iPhone).

    After going through Apples tech support, all the way to one of their iPhone specialists, come to find out that my iPhone would install just fine on my wife's computer. I have an Asus A8N SLI Premium motherboard, and as such, the drivers provided on my motherboard drivers disc to upgrade my USB ports from 1.0 to 2.0 were "supposed to be included with Windows XP Service Pack 1". However, after re-installing my computer and MS service packs 1 AND 2, I still didn't have USB 2.0, and every time I connected my iPhone, Windows would tell me "This device can perform faster if connected to a USB 2.0 port etc etc".

    The way I found to correct this problem was to go into "Device Manager" in XP, my USB hub controler had a "yellow exlamation", I right clicked the USB with the exclamation, clicked "Update driver", Windows found the proper driver, and I suddenly had USB 2.0.

    Prior to my iPhone 3G, I never had cause to transfer a ton of data via USB, so I never knew that my ports weren't converted to 2.0. The difference in transfer rates from USB 1.0 to 2.0 is NIGHT AND DAY! USB 2.0 is easily 3 times faster!

    In conclusion, USB 1.0 was the source of ALL of my issues with iTunes... or, at least all of the transfer issues.

    I hope this helps anyone else that may be having any kinds of issues transferring anything to their iPhone 3G, from songs, movies, data, reinstall, check that you ARE connected to a USB 2.0 port!!!


    Thanks, CrazEtooN for all of your help, and, by the way, ALL 100 of my ringtones that I painstakingly went back and re-edited to 39 seconds WORK on my iPhone 3G.

    Cheers!




    - Josh

    I have Vista as well. You will have to change your settings to show file extensions.

    I just found this link today on CB's sister site, The iPhone Blog.

    Audiko

    Check it out, very nice website. Makes great ringtones. Just upload the song you want. Drag and select the portion you want. Click create and then download the .m4r file. Works perfectly, just like iTunes but free. It even adds a fade in/out at the beginning and end.
    Awesome site bro. I was using Make Your Own Ringtones - Free Ringtone Maker This actually formats for the iPhone. Cool stuff.

    This is the best website for free ringtones! You can customize or upload your own songs and then hit the download for iphone button. It will download to your computer. double click the file and itunes will open up and your ringtone will be in your ringtone folder.

    I know you can jailbreak your phone and fix it to do sms ringtones, but i don't want to jailbreak my phone. Is there a way to not jailbreak your phone and still make SMS text? Also, If i were to jailbreak my phone and then put it back like normal would i loose the SMS text i had made?

    So I figured out how to put ringtones for callers. I want to know if anyone knows how to put SMS text ringtones on a non jailboken phone. I know it works for jailbroken phones. But I really don't want to jailbreak my phone. Also if I decide to jailbreak my phone and make SMS text on it, will they stay on there once I put the phone back to normal?

    On your step "9. See that ringtone you just dragged to your desktop? It should be "songname.m4a." Now, simply change the file extension to .m4r. You can leave the file name alone, or you can make it whatever you want, the important thing is that you change the extension to .m4r."

    How do I change the file extension. I have Windows Vista and the file on my desktop does not have "songname.m4a." I am having a problem changing the file to extension .m4r

    How do I do this?

    Just to make things easier to you people, you can easily get ringtones on you iTunes, and sync them by using a program called iRinger.
    Hope it helps! It actually does all the steps in the first one with one click.
