how to convert m4a to m4r on windows? (iphone ringtone)

here’s something I wrote on another site for making ringtones for your iphone:

using windows:

go to itunes and find the file you’d like as a ringtone. right click file > get info > options. find a part of the song you like, approx. 25-35 seconds or so and put in the time in: start time and end time. press ok and right click again > convert to AAC.

go to your music folder (it shuold be there) and find the itunes folder. Go to itunes music and you’ll have a file there. Rename the file from YOURFILENAME.m4a to YOURFILENAME.m4r. If it doesn’t work and a message doesn’t pop out saying that you’re changing the file extension, then:

Control panel > Appearance and themes > folder options > view > uncheck hide extensions for known types

rename file from: FILENAME.m4a to FILENAME.m4r

double click file and it should pop up in the ringtones section. sync your iphone and it should work.
