    I downloaded several MP3 Ringtones from Zedge.com. I transferred them directly from my PC to the Rintone folder in my Nokia Lumina 1320 but when I open a contacts folder to edit and select their specific ringtone, none of the ones I moved into this folder show up. Anyone have any idea as to why? They are MP3, under 40 seconds, not protected.

    Download the Files app (by Microsoft) and check if you can find them :)

    It shows up in Files but I still can not assign it to contacts. Under contacts/ringtones, it doesn't come up. Also, when I open Files, the standard ringtones are not in that folder, just the one that I transferred from my PC. There is something I'm missing here as to why it's not being made available along side the other ringtones.

    Try moving them to the music folder or create a ringtones folder? Doubt that will work, but we can just try everything right? lol

    Another way to approach this:

    - upload a ringtone to onedrive and download it from there (doubt that will help)

    - create a zip file with all the ringtones, download an unzipper from the store, add the zip file to the phone and unzip it

    - create custom tones from songs with the ringtone maker app that comes with the phone

    Thanks, I'll try creating a new folder for the Ringtones and try to include the ones that came on the phone then move it en mass to a new ringtone folder in the phone.

    If you can play on your phone, it isn't protected with digital rights management (DRM), and it's smaller than 30 MB, then you can use it as a ringtone on your phone.
    It has to come from the PC, not the phone, not OneDrive, not a zip file. The ringtone folder in phone memory, not one you created on an SD card, not one you created anywhere.

    Put the ringtones in the music folder to see if they will play on the phone, do they play on the PC.
    You do not have access to the native ringtones on the phone. They are part of the system.
    When you select a ringtone for a contact it will be in the custom folder, not listed with the other ringtones.

    Im pretty sure you can create a ringtone with the ringtone maker and it will pop up in the "custom" section

    Ok great. I'll check all that out. When I went in to assign the ringtone to a contact there was not an option for a custom folder. I'll go back in and do everything from scratch and see what happens. Thank you.
