Here is full instructions for making your own ringtones using a song from your iTunes library, and iTunes itself to convert it. Before someone accuses me of flooding or whatever its my own post just copied from another thread to make it easier for this guy..or gal to do it.
Right click on the song in iTunes and select "get info"
Go to the "options" tab
Type in start and end point ie (0:00 - 0:30) the tune cant be any longer than 30 secs then click OK
Now the song will only play that section in iTunes, now go upto the top of iTunes and select the "advance" tab and "convert selection to AAC" this will now creat a new file under the original song of the ringtone clip that you want.
Drag that new clip onto the desk top (or folder) and delete it from itunes library (this is important) select move to recycle bin.
Now go to the clip you have dragged and change the extension from "ringtone.m4a" to "ringtone.m4r" and you will notice the file will change and now be a ringtone clip.*****
Double click on the file and it will automatically appear in the ringtones tab in iTunes.
To be able to use multiple tracks on the iphone you must now right click on the on the ringtone in the ringtone tab and select "get info" and clear all information in the "info" and "sorting" tabs, only leave the ringtone name, get rid of all track numbers etc and also remember to set genre to none.
You can now add as many custom ringtones onto your iphone as you wish. All you now need to do is remember to reset the time in the original song you used or it will only play that 30 sec clip.
*****You should be able to change file extentions by just highlighting over whatever file extention it is and replacing it with the one you want.
To do this just right click on the file, and click on properties on the pop up menu. then where you see the name of the file just hightlight and change the file extention which is the .XXX on the end. Windows does however hide the file extention by default so if you can't see the file extention on the end of the name then you need to change your settings.
Go into control panel > folder options> view> and under the advanced settings, clear the 'Hide extensions for known file types' check box, and then click OK. This then allows you to display file extensions, and can therefore be changed as described above.
Let me know how you get on with it and whether or not i can be of further help
