    I am using BitPim 0.7.12 and VX4400. Every time i try to drag mp3s over to the ringers menu in bitpim I get the same exception. I have made sure that the mp3s are properly formated and I have tried renaming the files. Most of the mp3s I have tried are downloaded off of various yahoo groups so I know they should work. The exception I get is the following:

    An unexpected exception has occurred.
    Please see the help for details on what to do.

    I have searched around the web and I have not found anyone with this problem. Dragging midi files over works fine so i'm not sure what's going on. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    hmm, nice link, but everything I have read so far says nothing about converting the mp3s to qcp. Maybe because the link is geared towards the VX6000? In any case i'll give that a try and see if it works.

    Thanks.

    you convert the mp3 to wav and then teh wav to qcp.

    complicated eh? thats why i dont suggest ppl do it and i tend to not tell ppl how to do it. its just to much of a pain and you can do it w/o your computer or a data cable. (see the sticky at the top of the forum named 'How to send ringtones and pixs to the vx6000' to learn how to make mp3 or any other kind of audio as a ring tone!)

    Does sending the file the way you described in the sticky work for the vx4400 as well. That is the phone I am using, which is why I was wondering why these instructions don't work:

    http://www.wirelessadvisor.com/waforums/messageview.cfm?catid=26&threadid=37064&STARTPAGE=1

    "ok get a mp3 edit program. im using the program cool edit 1.2
    open your mp3 file and edit the file to 25 seconds or less
    then click file, "save as"
    name your file and click on options,
    then click the tab that says convert to mono
    and make the bite rate 16kbps
    then look on the right hand side of that save as screen. u will see a button that says advanced

    click that and it will load up an option where u can modify how u save the file
    change the sample rate to 16000.
    save your file to anywhere.

    now u must rename your file.
    lets say your file is named "happy".
    your file would say happy.mp3
    rename it to happy.mp3.mid
    upload it through bit pim.
    enjoy

    it works!!!!
    now everybody show me some love and respect. !!!! "
