    Thanks for these great instructions, however I am having some trouble transferring the file to my phone. . I was able to transfer to my phone however when I try to select to use as a ringtone it does not allow me to highlight that option, it says cannot be used as a ringtone? what did I do wrong?

    The following shows you how to use MP3's as ringtones. If your using a Sony Ericsson phone you'd be using their software you got with your phone. If your using a different phone, use that software. I would however like to say out loud... I DO NOT TAKE ANY CREDIT FOR THIS!!!! I have done a lot of riesearch over the last while to find this information. The example I'm using is by using my Sony Ericsson W580i. I'm pretty darn sure this will work on any Rogers phones. If not, please say something so I may edit it.


    Step 1.

    Download and install the Sony Ericsson Digital Rights Management Packager
    Windows : My Account
    Mac: My Account

    Step 2.

    Select a mp3 you would like to protect (use as a ringtone).

    Step 3.

    Run DRM Packager
    Start->Programs-> Sony Ericsson-> DRM Packager-> DRM Packager
    Go to File, add files and select the mp3 you would like to use.

    Step 4. (Configuration)

    Go to Options -> Configuration -> and select combined delivery and also uncheck
    “ Place rights in separate folder” and click the little box with the … on it and place where you want them to go (ex. My Documents/My Music folder) click OK
    A window will pop up saying “Before proceeding with the combined delivery…. “
    Click OK. Use the following info to fill in the blanks.
    Content ID: myCellPhone @
    Enable right = checked
    Check Start time checked and date set to (which ever today’s date is)
    Check End time checked and date set to (which ever today’s date is but year 2015)
    click OK

    Step 5 Creating the dm file(s)

    Click on your MP3 file to highlight it
    Click on Create DRM content
    Now you can send this file to your device , you will be able to set this mp3 as a ringtone.

    Adding new file to your phone

    1. Plug in your W580i or other cell phone. IMPORTANT: Choose Phone Mode
    3. Then go to your little phone icon by your clock (bottom right corner)
    4. Right click on phone icon and scroll up to File Manager and click on it
    5. MyPhoneExplorer. Will open, click on “Your phone” icon so Memory Stick and Phone Memory folders show.
    6. Minimize that window so it takes up only half your screen. Then pull up the folder you put the “adjusted” MP3 file you wanted to use as a ringtone. Minimize that too to half the screen so you can see that window AND the MyPhoneExplorer window at the same time. High light the .DM file you made out of your MP3 and drag it to the MyPhoneExplorer and put it under the Memory Stick folder and the Phone Memory folder.
    7. IMPORTANT: Do not go into memory stick or phone memory. It will take a bit of time to transfer. Check your phone. It will have a pop up saying you have transferred a music file, click yes to install it into the Music folder.
    After that another pop up will come up asking you how to use it. In the list of options, choose "Ring tone" and you are done!

    YOUR DONE!! Now enjoy your ringtone!!!
