    Try this:

    Copy MIDI file to Treo

    Copy it to an SD expansion card: This method is a bit tricker than the others, so don't try it unless you're comfortable with file structures.

    You'll need a USB SD card reader for your PC. First, download the MIDI file to your desktop computer, and transfer the file to the SD card, making a mental note of its location on the card. Insert the SD card in your Treo smartphone, and launch the Web browser (don't worry, you don't need an active Internet connection to do this, and no kilobytes are taken out of your mobile data plan).

    In the web address bar, enter the location of the MIDI file in this format:
    file:///(folder)/(yourmidifile.mid) (Use the root directory to keep it simple, so it would be file:///filename.mid).
    * file:/// - enter this text exactly including three forward slashes
    * (folder) - the folder where you stored the MIDI file
    * / - use a forward slash to indicate folder contents
    * (yourmidifile.mid) - the filename of the MIDI file.

    An example address would be file:///MyMIDIfiles/BestRingtoneEver.mid. Or in the root directory, file:///MyMIDIfiles.mid.

    Once the address is entered, hit Go, and the file will be transferred to the MIDI Ring Tones database.

    I hope this helps.

    Even easier...

    just email the midi file to yourself and access the email via the Treo...
    Once the download is complete, select Save or Open with Sounds...

    the midi file will automatically appear in the Sounds database with your other sound options... no pdb conversions necessary

    I have the same problem... but I have an mp3 file I want to transfer to my Treo 600 and make into a ringtone. I have Ringo installed, btw, if that makes any difference. I don't believe I have the version that supports mp3 tones. Do I need to convert it beforehand to a Treo-friendly file? What do I do?
