Ringtones & the new ROM for Fuze

I installed the new ROM last night and for the most part I'm pretty happy. 

 

I do have one problem that I can't seem to solve though.  In the old version of the ROM I could use mp3s as ring tones.  Even though I put the ring tone I used before I reflashed the phone in the ringtones folder, the phone doesn't seem to recognize it. 

 

Could this be size issue?  The ringtone is 29 seconds long but 463Kb in size.

 

Any suggestions?

I found a solution but it still was easier in the old ROM.

 

I broke down and read the docs.  It turns out if you can use the file explorer to set a ring tone.  Use file explorer to find the ringtone.  Using the stylus, click and hold.  One of the items on the pop-up menu is 'set as ringtone'.

 

 

However, you still can't select that mp3 from the TF3D ringtone interface or the notifications interface.

 

So I'm still looking for suggestions.

Experienced same problem - since I like to have individual ringtones for multiple contacts, found it easier to revert to shipped ROM.

With the exception of the new Radio, I have upgraded everything else (thanks to XDA) to conform with the specs of the new ROM.

With the new rom, all you have to do is open the contact, then edit, then select the ringtone you want for the contact.

I tried dper1's suggestion.  Yes - his description describes the steps but my mp3s don't show up in that list either.

 

I'm still looking for a solution that allows me to use mp3s as ringtones.

He followed the link provided in one of the posts in the thread. From there, there is a link to a .cab file that allows you to use larger files for ring tones and not as limited by Windows Mobile 6.1 for 400 or 600 kb

You need to transfer the .cab file to the phone using either active sync or windows mobile device center.  Once on your phone, find the file you just transferred and click on it.  That will install it.

Another way is to install a windows program called CabviaActiveSync.  This adds an install menu when you right click on a cab file within your PC windows environment.
