Custom Ringtones Show Up in iTunes Folder, but Not on iPhone

I've recently upgraded from a 3GS to a 4G. I have a few custom ringtones that I created from .MP3 files (converted to .m4r files). I had these same ringtones installed on my 3GS and want them on my 4G.
I transferred to my 4G by dragging them from the Windows folder to the iTunes device folder. The 5 ringtones show up in iTunes under the Ringtones folder. Only one of them shows up on the phone as being transferred.
I had done this a couple of days ago, and noticed then that only one ringtone was being shown under Custom Ringtones on my phone. Tonight, I uninstalled them all, rebooted my phone, and then re-dragged the files as per above. Again, all show up in the folder on the iPhone in iTunes, but one shows up on the phone. This is now a different one than a couple of days ago.
Soooo... what can be causing this? The files are apparently on my phone, but not appearing in the usable list. I need some help in resolving this. I've looked through these forums and seen similar issues. There doesn't seem to be a 'proper' way to do this. I manage my phone manually, and have not done a 'sync' with the ringtones as they show up in the folder... (I don't really see the need to sync if they're appearing in iTunes as on the phone).
Thanks!

Hi
having the same problem with my both devices.
already have custome ringtones and wanted to add more, followed the instruction and now i have them in iTunes under the Ringtones section.
my devices are iPhone 4 and using OS 4.21

    Do you still have the "Music Video" Smart Playlist in iTunes? If you right click on a video file, which normally shows up under "Movies" you can pick the video type of Movie, Music Video, or TV Show. When you select "Music Video" the video file drops out of the Movies section and if the Music Video playlist is present will show up there.
    You might have deleted that playlist so it wouldn't be on the iPod either.
    So create a Smart Playlist where the rule is Video Kind IS Music Video...

  • My purchased items are showing OK in iTunes Store but not on My Movies or My TV shows why

    My SONY Laptop (which is my Authorized PC) is showing my Purchases in iTunes, (when I look up my Purchases for either Movies or TV shows)
    However when I look up My Movies or My TV shows its empty - No Content
    Funnily enough when I look up my account I can see all my hidden shows
    Why am I  getting a blank with my Purchased Items in My Movies or My TV shows when I can see them in the iTunes Store purchased items.

    They are showing in your account's purchase history (via the Store > View Account menu option), but not in your iTunes library (they won't show there unless you've downloaded them on that computer or copied them into that computer's library) and/or in the cloud for redownloading - is that what you mean ?
    If you've hidden them then they won't show in the cloud for redownloading, nor will they show in the cloud if you've changed countries since buying them or if the rights-holder has removed them from your country's store.

  • Duplicates in iTunes folder but not iTunes

    Hi,
    Through Spotify I figured out that my music library on my Mac contains duplicates of many of my songs. Since this is a problem in the User > Music > iTunes folder, the usual "Find duplicates" won't help. I have over 5,000 songs, so is there any way to isolate and remove duplicates within the folder?
    Thanks!

    Use File > Add Folder to Library to add the iTunes Media folder to the library.
    Existing tracks will be ignored, new tracks will be added.
    Use the Option+File > Show Exact Duplicates feature to show exact duplicates.
    Sort the list on Date Added.
    Delete the duplicates added today.

  • Why are ibooks purchases/downloads showing up on my iPad but not my iPhone?

    I'm also seeing Notes on my iPhone, but not on my IPad. Thanks for any help!

    You can use same ID on both devices.   It's common.
    If you don't want to see contacts on both, just disable it under settings - mail,contacts, calendars - select your account, disable contacts

  • I see/play TV Shows in iTunes view but not on iPhone

    When I connect my iPhone4S to my MBAir and view the iPhone's files (via iTunes) I see that there are 37 "TV Shows" listed.  I can even click the play button and they play (in iTunes, on my computer).  My iPhone shows (at the bottom of the iTunes window) that it thinks it has a lot of "Video" (over 3.5 gb) stored on it.  However, when I fire up the "Video" app on the phone itself there are NO videos.
    Sync doesn't help since these videos are not on my MBAir -- they are only (now) on the iPhone.
    Am I using the wrong app to view them?  How can I get to them on my iPhone, to watch them there?
    Thanks!

    thanks
    john

    Check the songs are really not in the Music section of the library by clicking the magnifying glass in the search box and unticking Search Entire Library if it is ticked, then typing in the name of the album. If the tracks still don't show try closing iTunes and deleting a hidden file called sentinel from inside your iTunes folder. This should make iTunes run an integrity check on the database when you start it again. Make sure the tracks are checked before you try syncing again.

  • I purchased a text tone from Itunes.  It shows up in my library, but not as a text tone.  Is there a way for me to set it as a text tone for all texts?  Or I am stuck with factory settings?

    I purchased a text tone from Itunes.  It shows up in my library, but not as a text tone.  Is there a way for me to set it as a text tone for all texts?  Or I am stuck with factory settings?

    So it is conseidered a customized text tones even if it was purchased through iTunes?  Confusing.  Since I bought it through itunes as a text tone I assumed it would work.  OOOPS
    Thanks so much

  • HT1844 Library Issue:  I just imported 2 CD's into ITunes.  They show up in "Recently Added" and on my other devices via ITunes Match, but NOT in the ITunes software on the computer where I added them.

    Library Issue:  I just imported 2 CD's into ITunes.  They show up in "Recently Added" and on my other devices via ITunes Match, but NOT in the ITunes software on the computer where I added them.  They show up in the search box, but when I click on the results it just kicks me to ALL my music.  I have imported thousands of songs/CD's before and this is a new one.

    Something may have gone wrong with the index of the Music playlist. Making another change to the library such as downloading the current iTunes Free Single of the Week, or deleting one track from your library and reimporting it, should fix the problem.
    If that doesn't work close iTunes and delete the hidden file sentinel from inside the main iTunes folder, then start iTunes again. It should run a consistency check when it starts up which ought to correct things.

  • How do I restore my iTunes library when "Previous iTunes Library" is not showing up in iTunes folder?

    I turn off my PC with Windows 7 for an hour, turn it back on and suddenly the only songs that show up are ones in the Cloud.
    I looked through a bunch of questions on the Apple Support Communitities and they all say look for the "Previous iTunes Library" in the iTunes folder, but it's not there.
    Thanks.

    If you have AVG AntiVirus the issue may rear its head again. See this post.

  • TS1702 Hi, I have 209 apps in my iTunes store but in my iPhone it shows only 176 !!

    Hi, I have 209 apps in my itunes store but in my iphone it shows only 176, some apps are not shows in my phone even with sync, I can see them not highlighted in my istore, in my phone ther is 11 screen with 16 apps in each one so total of 176 app, is it the maximum screens in the phone 11 ??

    You can make folders with the apps. I believe I read that each folder can hold 16 apps and you can have 16 folders on each page. That allows you to have 2,816 total apps.

  • I copied mp3 files from a usb stick and they appear in music folder in finder and on iPhone/ipad with itunes match but not in iTunes?

    I copied mp3 files from a usb stick and they appear in finder in my itunes media/music folder and on my iphone and ipad with itunes match but not in the itunes library?

    Not working.  And it didn't used to be a problem.  iTunes can find the songs with Search Library, but doesn't show in any index (by song, artist or album).  Finding with Search Library offers to play or add to Up Next, but neither actually does anything.  Using File-Add to Library does nothing as well.  The only way I can get the new files to play is to find in Finder and Open with iTunes.
    I suspect Apple is trying to drive me to buy from iTunes store.  Not gonna happen.  If they don't fix this, I'll find another player.
    This worked fine before OSX 10.8.

  • Voice Memos shows in computer iTunes but not on iphone

    Now, I have iphone 5, OS 8.1 (Powerbook Pro OS 10.6.8).
    Earlier OS, I used to be able to enjoyed and managed the Voice Memos from iPhone to the computer iTunes Playlists, then selected and dragged it to a new playlist. Once I synced the new playlist back to the iphone, I could play it back repeatedly under Music on the iphone. (if play under the Voice Memos on iphone as you know it won't repeat and stops all tasks).
    Now, even though the new playlist with the voice memos shows in the computer iTunes,  but once I sync it to the iphone the new playlist with the voice memos will no longer show on the iphone. (again, the reason I do so, because, if played under the Voice Memos it won't auto repeat and stops all tasks).
    Suggestions Please.
    Thank you!
    Note: I tried to converted the Kind from ACC to MP3 or MPEG.
             I tried to drop the Voice Memos item to the old PlayLists( songs), once it synced to the iphone the playlist will show with songs in it but not the voice     memos item.

    Haa..
    Instead of converted the Kind from ACC to MP3,  just changed the media kind from voice memo to music.
    It works again now! It took me 6 months to get to this point.
    Happy journey!

  • My ipod shows up on my desktop, but not in itunes 7.

    Let me start out by saying I've never had any itunes + ipod probems before. Everything has run smoothly up until now.
    Last week I upgraded my OS to 10.4.7 because I had been running on 10.2.8 since 2001 and itunes wouldn't let me download albums containing music videos. So I decided it was time for the upgrade. I also upgraded to itunes 7 and had been previously using itunes 6. This is when the problems started. Now whenever I plug my ipod into my computer with my firewire cord, my ipod shows up on my desktop, but not in itunes and I am completely clueless on what to do. No error messages pop up or anything. My ipod charges and that's about it. I tried doing the 5 R's, but none of that helps. I have a feeling it's itunes's problem and not my ipod's. I was thinking that maybe if I uninstall itunes 7 and re-install 6, everyting would work again; but I don't know how to uninstall itunes and I don't want to risk losing my library. I'd just like for itunes 7 to recognise my ipod and update it. Can anyone help me?

    My iPod is a click wheel...I think that's fifth generation?
    I've always used my firewire cable to update my iPod. I've tried using USB in the past but for some reason it always says that my iPod has low battery and won't let me update it, so I just use firewire. Can I not use firewire with itunes 7?
    I'll try using the USB again. It's laying around here somewhere. Just gotta find it.
