    I believe you have to set the genre to "ringtone". Also, can't be over 40 seconds, over 1mb, or have DRM.

    K, just found this article on WPCentral: WPCentral Tutorial - Custom Ringtones with Mango - http://www.windowscentral.com/custom-ringtones-mango

    These restrictions are for wp 7.x. For 8, only has to be less than 30 Mb, no lenght limit.

    I copied some mp3's straight from phones memory card to ringtones and couldn't see them. Had to copy first to computer's hard drive and then to ringtones to get things working.

    So all you have to do is put them in the ringtone folder on WP8? No setting the genre either?

    Yes. That's all I did. Copied mp3 from my computer into the ringtone folder on the phone.

    Hi all

    i also faced similar problem Earlier to my LUMIA 520

    (The solution] which i found is simple.

    Connect Windows Phone 8 to PC with Data cable.
    with Windows( 7 or 8 )as operating system .
    open Phone in Pc then open Ringtones folder
    Just Drag your Audio mp3 Files from PC to the Ring tones folder. (do not try to copy paste)(do not rename after you copy or alter the file which you coped)
    That's all it is done...!!!!

    I'd also recommend that in a pinch you can just transfer the full song to the phone and use the Nokia Ringtone Maker, really doesn't get much easier from that!

    My nokia lumia 520 downloaded music through pc but wont show up in the songs tab, but i know that the songs are there because when I connect it to my pc the songs show up in the SD card. The files are not corrupted cause I use them for ringtones, they show up in the artist/albums/genre tabs. I also know that the way I downloaded music worked because it was working until 3/23/2014. Pls help I restarted my phone, re-downloaded everything, and changes my storage options.

    I have always been an advocate for the Windows Mobile/Phone platform but my patience is wearing thin the more I use Windows Phone 8.x and Windows 10. I gave Android a real good look this past year and defended Windows Phone for as long as I can remember. I recently took over my ex-wife's HTC One M8 for Windows and while the experience wasn't the end of the world, to simply put my ring and alert tones on the device; my God, this is ridiculous. What is so hard about plugging the phone via USB to a computer and File Explorer view it as a drive? For Christ's sake, Android doesn't have a problem being seen by a Windows computer, but did anybody at Microsoft Central think about how Windows 10 would interact with their Windows Phone platform? Ringtone Maker...problem solved? Sure, if the file isn't too big; it's cake, but what if it isn't. Text message! I like that one. And how big are those? It drives me nuts the lack of common sense developers put into their hardware. All I want is my ringtone; that's it. Who in God's name uses the one on the phone to begin with? Never have I been more aggravated than I am now. After all Android has the Launcher 8 app and the best part about those tiles is you can bind any app you want to them. What I miss most about the old days is customization; a phone that can be personalized and not be pasted with all white outlines like the notification bar; what I would kill to be able to add some color to it.
