    I'm curious if anyone has found a workaround for the custom ringtone issue on W10 preview build 10536.1004. I can not get any custom ringtones to show up in sounds settings. I've tried texting and saving as ringtone. I tried groove,OneDrive, and even ringtone apps from the store and still get the same message, ringtones cannot be set now, error loading them. Any help would be awesome!

    I've only tried one app for ringtones called Nokia Tones. Its free and its got a lot of ring tones in it. I haven't attempted to add my own yet mainly because this app gets it done for me.

    It only works for me when I copy / paste my custom ringtones to the Ringtones folders through USB on my PC.

    On a PC, convert any MP3 ringtones you want to use into M4R (free programs to do this on the net if you need them), then when converted copy the M4R files into the Phone ringtones folder (using Windows Explorer) via USB cable connected to the PC and Phone - job jone

    Same , couldn't get anything , but then the person above me saved my hopes, now I have all my custom ringtones, what's weird is you have to convert them to m4r files which are iPhone ringtone files, don't ask ne but it works like a charm!!

    Thanks bro. But, how exactly did you set it up as your ringtone. It doesn't show up in the ringtones list, I have moved it to the ringtones folder.

    For a long time I could not make my custom ringtones show up, I had to use some Nokia ringtone app. I have them backed up on my SD card and I always just copied them to the phone. Nothing. Then I read you have to copy them from a location not on the device, so I copied them from the SD to my C: drive and then back into the phone and then it worked. Bizarre, but as far as I know what to do, it's okay.

    I've done that in the first place, but when I open the ringtones folder it says its empty. Gonna play around a bit, try to find a solution.

    The m4a way is correct but you need to use the desktop version of the windows phone app and sync the tones in the ringtone tab in the app it definitely works

    I created Feedback for the phone companion app to have a Ringtones section. This will allow you to import anything and have it converted to the appropriate format and placed in the appropriate directory. Search Phone Companion and upvote. :D

    You have to make the mp3 file genre "ringtone" and copy into ringtone directory.
    File has to be less than 350K I think.

    Tried all of the suggested actions to no avail until I finally succeeded - I converted the file to m4r and made sure it wasn't longer than 40 seconds - that did it for me.

    So I moved the m4r file to the ringtones foldr using File Explorer on my phone, that didn't work.
    So I went to my friend, connected to his laptop, moved the m4r file from ringtones folder to desktop, than simply moved it back to the same folder and bam, it worked, looks like you just have to use your PC.

    I've been looking for a work around for the past week or so, thanks. I only hope this isn't the way it is with the final mobile build. Even the ringtone apps don't work with this preview build....
