    Try this:
    1. copy the file to your desktop
    2. email the file to yourself
    3. open the file from your phone using SOUNDS
    4. it should save the file where most of the other sounds are
    5. if the file is saved as "???", tap on DETAILS & simply rename the file as "Flint" etc.

    This should work.

    It wouldn't let me save a wav file, but I did download the Nokia Multimedia Converter 2.0 and made it an .amr file.

    That's funny. I just did it with no problem. The only thing I needed to do was give the file a name.

    Glad you were able to find that software, but I'm curious.... What happened when you tried to open the attachment?

    On my Treo, (amongst others) I had the following options:
    Open with Sounds
    Open with pTunes
    Open with LightWav

    I opened it with SOUNDS, and it automaticially saved the file as ???, at which point I selected DETAILS and renamed it Flint. Works fine.

    *******

    I thought that SOUNDS is part of the ROM software. I'm wondering if some 3rd party app. gives me the ability to open .wav file attachments.

    Sorry for being a pain in the ass, but I have a life long quest to understand everything about my equipment....

    So I can get a better idea of why you and I are not getting the same results, what exactly happens when you open the attachment from your email?

    Which Treo do you have?

    Which Palm OS?

    Do you have any software that affects the audio of your Treo such as pTunes, mRimnger, Butler etc.?

    Immo, Have you had any success at downloading ringtones from sites such as treobits.com?

    I downloaded the latest version of Biz Con, and tried it again. Now it works. I tried it several times in both Biz Con and Versa mail before with no luck.

    I still can not save an MP3 to sounds, but I think I need a 3rd party app for that.

    Thanks for all your help!

    Yes, MP3s will require additional software such as mRing, or Phone Technician etc.

    I think it depends on the conversion - when I converted it to 16bits it had no problems going into sounds to download but when I converted the ringer to 8 bits it went into wav player.

    I figured it out! There is an option that will open the viewer into either MMPlayer or sounds. Press sounds and it will do the transfer.

    when you open your message - you will see your attachements on the left of your attachements there is a post it like icon press on that - there is the option of viewer (second option) press that - then you should see a little arrow next to the viewer (drop down menu) press on the arrow - select sounds then press view and it should do it!

    getting amr files to work

    I found the following on the Palm KB support site and it worked for me. I have a 650.

    1) I copied the file to my SD card
    2) Open the web browser, don't go to the web
    3) enter the following as the address -
    file:///(folder)/(yourfile.amr), replace the folder with your folder name where you saved the file. Replace "yourfile" with your file name. Example: file:///MyRingtones/BestRingToneEver.AMR

    The phone will copy the file to the ringtone database and it should be available for use.

    Good luck

    p.s. the Palm instructions were for midi files but they worked for AMRs. The title of the KB subject was "How do I get a MIDI file on to my Treo?".
