How to Set an MP3 as a Ringtone
Nick asked if there was a way to set an MP3 as a ring-tone. Yes! This post will walk you through setting one of your favorite songs as your ring-tone. Note: It is better to use an MP3 without DRM protection. Read on for the Full story!
Step One: First things first, you should be able to access your device’s memory when it is connected to the computer. The following thumbnails will show the navigation/screens we need to get to.
On Windows Mobile Device Center, click on ‘File Management’ and then ‘Browse the contents of your device’
Step Two: A window should open similar to the image above. If you wish to store the MP3 on a memory card skip to Step Three
If you do not wish to use the memory card, double click on the icon denoted with just a ‘\’
Next, double click on ‘My Documents’ and open the folder ‘My Ringtones’
If you haven’t downloaded any ringtones yet don’t be surprised if this is empty. Skip to Step Four
Step Three: Double click on the icon marked ‘Storage Card’. Create a new folder here titled ‘My Ringtones’
Step Four: On your desktop, in a separate window, open the folder containing the MP3 you wish to use as a ring-tone. Right click and hold on the MP3, drag and drop it into the ‘My Ringtones’ folder you have open and release the right mouse button. Select ‘Copy’ from the menu that pops up.
Step Five: On your device, from the main screen go to the settings pane and select ‘Change Ringtone’
This is the screen you should be seeing. With the current ringtone selected press the Center/Select on your Shadow’s wheel.
From this screen scroll up and down to find your ring-tone. Once highlighted press Done.
If you are successful the new ring-tone should show in the Sounds screen. Press done and you are finished!
