Solution2: How to convert AAC to M4r manually using iTunes (Windows, Mac)?
That ringtones and song files are only distinguished by file extension. The file extension for Ringtones is "M4R".
1. To add a ringtone to your iPhone, using Windows Explorer or Finder just duplicate and rename any AAC file with a "M4R" extension, then double-click on it. This file will be added to your iTunes library automatically. (Some are reporting a size limit for the music file, so if you have trouble, using a smaller file may help.)
2. Now, click on your iPhone in iTunes, and go to the ringtone section. You should now see your new ringtone. If you want to be sure about the sync, feel free to click "selected ringtones" and check off the file explicitly, though this shouldn't be required.
3. Now SYNC your phone. You're Done!
How to convert AAC to M4r using software (Mac)?
Download iRing (freeware) or iRing2 (freeware). It takes the AAC file, turns it into an m4r file, lets you move it to your iTunes Ringtone folder, then converts it back to an m4a file after its there.
I’ve successfully uploaded 2 rintones to my iPhone using it. If you don’t have a Ringtones folder in your iTunes Music folder you will need to create it for iRing to run the scconvertt properly.
Note: iTunes must beclosed for it to work. If iTunes is open, it will not add the file to the Ringtones tab on your iPhone.
