    what is causing the problems?

    Ok... ive been messing around... is there an alphibical problem.. or a name length problem? And i know that it doesnt matter about spaces... what is keeping 2 out of the 5 from not playing?

    Mine worked but I'm having the same problems as well. I have placed 4 ring tones but only 2 are playing.

    The GUID is bad. It has to be numbers or letter from A to F. Just use digits its simpler

    I get the following so something is wrong:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN"
    "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

    <key>GUID</key>

    Try copying one of my sections into your plist and change your actual files to the names I have. Just to test it and see if your sound plays.

    I found a mistake in my own tutorial. I'm sorry. Each ringtone needs its own spoof file.

    I changed mine around and it looked like that the ring tones on ring tone 1 and ring tone 2 are the only one that plays. Ring tone 3 and up does not play.

    I just finished the process. The first ringtone in my list plays, but the second does not.

    One thing i found useful is ms xml notepad. its free, and a easy way to check for errors in the xml file. I had about 3 different errors before I got if to work.

    EDIT 10/16/07 @ 10:41pm pdt
    OK, I added a third. The first two play, but the last does not. So, it could be:
    1) the order
    2) the file name length. The two that work are 7 characters, the one that does not is 10.
    3) phase of the moon.

    EDIT 10/16/07 @ 10:46pm pdt
    GOT IT!!!! Its the length of the f__king name. Not to waste alot of time testing, I made all names 7 characters!!!!! Now all 3 play fine.

    I can't get my ringtones to play either. They appear in the list though...
    using a non-jailbreaked 1.1.1 with itunes7.4.3.1 to encode AAC...

    if anybody finds a way, please post

    So if I hear you correctly youre saying it has to be like this: thedog22.m4a or this: like.m4a?

    yes. the name of the original '3rd' none-playing ringtone was "apyeahbaby". I renamed it to "yaababy", changed the ringtone.plist, and it worked!!!! Im sure you can use different lengths besides 7, but im not going to try all combinations at the moment. I'll take this as a small victory over Apple and leave it as that.

    Is this necessary for the dummy file as well?
