    I'm wanting to take clips of songs from CD's that I own and make them into the highest quality ringtones for my Treo 600. I've read through a lot of the other posts, but became quickly confused as to what would get the job done. I of course want good voice and music quality. Just looking for the best all around solution.

    Thanks!

    I've used Power MP3 cutter in the past and seems to work well for me. Download the free trial version from www.cooolsoft.com, I think it lets you do up to one minute clips/cuts with the trial.

    You're in luck. Like you, I had to figure out the in's and out's of creating quality ringtones for my new baby. To ensure others would be empowered to have big fun, I published a series of posts over the weekend. Jointly, they point you to freeware for the tasks, and provide a detailed walkthru, including no fuss ripping from the CD, and then trimming the file in the precise manner desired.

    FWIW, I found it best, all the way around, to try to keep the files at roughly 30 seconds, which equates to 500-600kb per. I didn't want to sacrifice a huge amount of space to the ringtones, because I want to load up on full mp3's for chill-out purposes.

    I didn't look through the guides above but the way I would do it is to rip your CD audio to MP3 using CDex (it's free)... then Goldwave (shareware) to cut down the mp3 to just the sound you want (you may want to amplify the sound here too). From there, you just need something on your Treo that plays MP3s as ringtones (I like Phone Technician, personally).
