Can someone tell me why this ringtone is not working?

I created this ringtone using Blaze Media pro. It follows the norms
1) File size is less than 1MB(615KB)
2) Duration is less than 40 Sec (39 sec) and
3) I didn't impose digital Media rights on it

When I copied this file into my Lumia 900 using Latest version of Zune. It was able to sync into my Lumia 900, is even getting displayed in Music player but not getting displayed in Ringtone list. Can anyone find out what is wrong with this file?

When you locate the song from Zune, you should be able to right click it and select Edit. There it will have a box for Genre which has plenty of preset genres, but you can write there "RINGTONES" instead and that should do it. Sync it up and should be good to go.

Lets hope they made that process a bit easier on WP8...

Yeah making ringtones is a pain. I use the free ringtone program and it works very well for me. I've only had to make a few of my own or download from other sources.

However, once you make like 40 ringtones the whole process is pretty easy :)
