You need to ensure the Ringtones is ticked in the iTunes preference.
To verify that, open iTunes and click "iTunes ยป Preferences" and make sure you are in the "General" settings and tick the box.

@mprm20 :-
1. Take the saved file and first rename it back to an .m4a file extension.
2. Drag and drop this into iTunes (or double-click to open it with iTunes). This will pull the clip into your music folder (as you'd expect).
3. Find and right click on the ringtone in your music library and choose "Create AAC version."
4. Then go to your iTunes Music Folder and find the AAC version you just saved (not your original clip). Rename the extension on *this* file now back to an .m4r file.
5. Drag and drop this into iTunes, and it should go to your Tones folder and be able to be synced on the phone, etc.
6. You can now delete the .m4a ringtone clip from your library.

Dear Abhaykhr,
I have followed steps 1 thru 3 OK, but when I get to step 4, I find both versions of my ringtone inside my iTunes Music folder, but how do I view their file extensions inside iTunes?

And in step 4, this file, both files are inside my Music in iTunes already. And Im not sure of how to change their file extensions.

Also no number of Tones show beside my Tones folder in iTunes, unless I click on it, and then it only shows my old ringtone, which I made long ago on a very early version of iTunes.

Im thinking perhaps that the new version of iTunes that I have on my iMac, v. 11.0.2, might not allow importing ringtones any more.

Or is it just that Im not doing it properly?
Jane

Mine will not let me 'create aac version.' it's all grayed out in the selection. any other suggestions on what could be prohibiting this?
