First off, You should make your own ringtones, I don't even think the Hero will play .dm files.

Second, it WILL play mp3 files as your ringtones.

Use Goldwave or some other music editing program to make the tones, save them as mp3's.

Plug your phone into the computer, change the connection type to disc drive.

EVERYTHING IS CASE SENSITIVE FROM THIS POINT ON!!!!!!!

It'll probably be "Removable Disc F:\" or something like that, In that folder you need to create a folder called "media" and inside the media folder create 3 folders: ringtones alarms and notifications

Then move/save your ringtones that you made into whichever one you want them for, notifications are your voicemails, sms, e-mails, etc. and the other 2 just speak for themself.

If you need anything else, let me or someone else here know, Welcome to the forums!

Once again someone says get an app. Load any mp3 you have or like in your phone. Use your factory ringtone trimmer installed on phone from factory to trim out any part of song you want. Save as contact ringtone or phone main ringtone. Use search for ringtone trimmer. Been covered a lot.

Different strokes man. I prefer to do my music editing on a 19 inch screen instead of a 3 inch one. I'm a perfectionist with my ringtones though so I like alot of playing area.

I have almost 60 tones that i've made on my phone right now, heh...

Huffman, what kind of music do you like? I have my ringtones in a zip file that i could just send you if you wanted, depending on your taste in music you might enjoy some of them.

That's fine, You just made it out to be like I was wrong because I didn't use the trimmer.

huffman, i'll send you a PM with the file attatched, you'd probably like most of the stuff i have in here. It's mostly rock/metal. or you can give me your e-mail address.

Sorry bout sounding like that. Not wrong and a million ways to do same thing. I just think most don't even know trimmer os there. And I tried a couple apps and trimmers was just as easy for me. Didn't me to sound like a asshole. Lol. Guess goldwave must be pc and not a app.

I don't think they should show up on your music list? Lemme check and see if they're in my folder...

Hmm. My ringers don't show up in my music folder, that's weird. This is what your SD card should look like as far as the ringers go.

Make sure you don't have the ringtones copied into your music folder, that should be the only reason why they show up in there.

P.S. I e-mailed you the zip file full of ringtones. In case you were wondering this is how I use mine:

Main Call Tone - Abduct
Voicemail - Dirty Work
SMS - Hey You/ Fire In My Eyes/ Sulfur/ 30/30/150
Alarms - Awake And Alive


And I have about 15-20 set for different people's ringers I.E. "Home" for my Grandparents

this is how I have things set up:
Sd card/media/audio - this is where I have my music
SD card/media/audio/ringtones - this is where I have my ringtones
SD card/media/audio/notifications - this is where I have my notification tones

but my ringtones still show up in my music app but not my ringtone list

****nevermind I fixed it****

Might not be much of help to suggest an app, but I like Ringdroid if you are looking into making your own ringtones.

It's alright, happens to the best of us. I had a music folder on my SD card when it was in my instinct so when I put it in my phone originally it was already done for me.
