    Yes.

    Copy the file to your device. On the device, find the file. Tap and hold to get the contaxt menu. Select Set as Ringtone. Wait for someone to call you

    Umm, that's a negative Ghost Rider. That only works with WAV files on the PPC 6600. Anyone else have a trick or app?

    My bad. It also works on wma files, which is what I've converted my music to when I want to put it on the device, for reasons of space savings. I just tried it with an actual mp3 file, and it failed. It works on midi, wma, and wav, though.

    Well, you could always convert the mp3 into a wav file and solve your problem.

    Yeah, that's what I've been doing with WAVPAD and you can actually edit in/out only the parts of the song/sound you want.

    [those tools might be well to reference in the faq... along with "what types of files work as ringers" and the explorer set-as-ringtone feature.]

    Microsoft Windows media encoder.

    Convert the mp3s to wma instead of taking up a pile of space with wav.

    Unfortunately I don't think wma works as notification.

    Cheapest way to adjust sound files is converting them to wav and editing them with sound recorder(start->all programs->accessories->entertainment->soundrecorder) (assuming windows xp)

    I bought Media Jukebox with another mp3 player long ago. Even though I now use itunes as my media organizer I really liked it. It has a pretty good media editor and a bunch of codecs.

    If you want to get high end try

    I'm sure others have editors that are in between the two price points of $25 and $300. I'm just giving you what I have used.

    Actually a great free sound editing tool is Audacity. (Look it up, it's on Sourceforge somewhere).

    Lots of features, actually far more than you need but what the heck, it's free.

    Audacity - I haven't tried it but here is the link
    http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

    Doesn't look like it supports wma editing, but that is easy to get around. Just edit mp3 or wav then use the windows media encoder to get it to wma.
