    That's very interesting. I assume the rule of thumb would be make the mp3 about 30 seconds?

    yeah its about 30 secs. but then again there were some ringtones that just didn't cut to the filesize limit at 30secs so just decrease the kbps. I use GoldWave to cut up my ringtones if that helps.

    you do not need to use myphoneexplorer. You can navigate to the same place using windows explorer when your phone is in 'phone mode'. If you cannot get MPE working try this instead.

    HOW TO:
    1) click 'start'
    2) click 'my computer'
    3) double click 'sony ericsson file manager'
    4) you should now see your phone. double click on the name of your phone.

    you should now see two folders, "memory stick" and "phone memory".

    5) drag and drop your .dm music files into THIS folder (not into "memory stick" or "phone memory")

    I can't seem to "drag and drop" from DRM Packager 1.35 after I have created the drm content file. What am I missing/doing wrong? Any ideas??

    I've had my k790 for two months now with the same sh*t ring tone! Thank you very much for creating this thread! Both the drag & drop and upload methods worked for me in MyPhoneExplorer.

    Thanks for the tutorial on this. I've had the same very unique ringtone for about 1.5 years and got the W580i and couldn't switch the ringtone drove me mental for about 3 days until I discovered this

    DRM packager 1.35 for windows

    Anyone have a copy of the packager 1.35 for windows? The one from SE site appears to be corrupted, as when I run it it just popup with a DOS window for 2 seconds then it closes and no further actions! Also when I run it in a DOS window it said "Program too big to fit in memory"!! Help anyone???

    Never mind, I figured out. Just rename the file to .zip from.exe and unzip it before running.

    Alright I got it to work, I'll see if I can post or email some pics to go along with the step-by-step. BTW, MyPhoneExplorer does, it tricks the phone into thinking it's a legit ringtone that's being downloaded. The phone creates the 'rights' file for you. That's what the *.dcf stuff is. It's the media without the rights. Anyone wants pics can email me @ [email protected] and I'll send you what I've got. Sandini you're a freaking genius!
