    I am excited about creating ring tones from my music on my new Centro. I have already tried MiniTones, which is free; but it has one drawback. It will not read AAC files. Most of my music is in AAC format and I really want an app that will read them. I really do not want to have to keep mp3's on my SD card. Fortunatley I have a few MP3 files as that was my original mobile and computer format. I looked at Butler and Phone Technician and neither will read an AAC file. Any suggestions???? Thanks.

    AAC files are usually copy protected. For that reason alone, you won't find an app to make ring tones out of them. Copy protection / Digital Rights Management = you play the music where we tell you & you can't alter the files / make something new out of them.

    None of my AAC files are purchased music. All of them were created from imports of my CD's in iTunes. I do not think they are copy protected as they do not act like it. I have used them and moved them in a variety of digital environments.

    Regardless, I've never seen an app that uses aac files for ring tones.

    There's a freebie called MusicTones that claims to supports aac, though I have not yet tried it. From what I read recently, this app works better for newer devices than MiniTones (no acc anyway) does.

    It sure been a while since I posted a link to PalmGear! :) If they pull the plug again, you can also find MusicTones here.

    You can't always be right. Over the last 5 years, more often than not, you have saved my life.

    You may in fact be right! MusicTones did not recognize my AAC files and my Centro crashed when I tried to convert an mp3 file to a ring tone.
