    can anyone point me in the right direction on how to change an .m4a file to .m4r?? I have searched this forum and other websites but haven't found much. I am using my iPhone to search so maybe thats why I'm getting frustrated do to the lack of speed using edge! Ugghh! Any help would be appreciated even if its just a link! BTW... Using windows vista.

    Thx

    Go to Computer (or any other folder) on Vista.
    Go to Organize then Folder and Search Options.
    Go to View tab and uncheck Hide extensions for known filetypes.
    Now go to the file and you can change the extension.

    this helped me with my laptop which has vista but iphone is synced to my desktop which only has regular windows with no vista.

    Do you know how to do the same thing for windows with no vista?

    I REALLY wish someone would come out with an iPhone killer, not to kill the iPhone, but make Jobs really have to work for all this money we are all just throwing at him like a stripper on a pole........

    All you do is rename the file from m4"a" to m4"r" after having done what was stated above, and bingo, you've changed the file type. No conversion or anything is required.

    Why use any software?

    In Windows XP:

    Open My Computer
    Go to Tools > Folder Options
    Click View and uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types"
    Click OK (it will take a second to apply) then you are all set.
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream!

    make sure you're changing the extension and not the filename or it won't work

    it should be changed from ringtone.m4a to ringtone.m4a

    Once the extension is changed the other factor is the time. The file must be 30 secs or less for it to be accepted as a ringtone.
