    I've made a couple of ringtones but I can't add them to my library in iTunes. Nothing happens when I either double click or drag and drop. They are all 30 seconds long. Any clue on how to sync them with my phone? Or atleast add them to iTunes?

    After you drag them in, are you looking under "Ringtones" on the left?

    Yes, I have highlated ringtones on the left. When I drag it over I get the little blue + sign so I drop it. But it doesn't add it. The folder stays empty

    That's odd. How did you get these m4r files, they may not be in the right format.

    And when you convert them in iTunes, they become m4a which you rename to m4r?

    Try the one I attached to this post and tell me if it works, it works for me. You just have to unzip it.
