Can't create ringtone for iphone from itunes???

I've been trying to create a ringtone from purchased music form itunes and a dialogue box keeps cumin up saying:

"itunes could not connect to the itunes store. An unknown error occured (11556). Make sure your network connection is active and try again."

Network connection is fine. I even tried it on home computer aswell as laptop! Driving me nuts!! Can anyone help, please??

Creating ringtones in iTunes is not available outside the US iTunes Store.

If you have a mac you can use Garage Band to create ringtones from DRM free songs in your iTunes library.

If you want to make your own on windows, there's a free program called iringer that will do it, and it will take care of importing them into itunes as well.

yeah iRinger is pretty coool, ive used it, but, if you want to use iTunes, you can cick the link here and it gives you a tutorial, you can then simply drag the finsihed file into your iTunes ringtones folder so essentially the same thing, the iRinger gives you 30 seconds i think you can go as far as 40 with iTunes route

no need for iringer or garageband. can make ringtones using just itunes.

1) find the song you want
2) right click then get info
3) go to the options tab and select your favorite 30 seconds.
4) go back to the new 30 sec song in itunes right click and convert to aac
5) then with the file change the extension to from .m4a to .m4r this can be done by dragging to the new 30 sec aac file to the desktop from itunes.
6) then change the old song back so i doesnt only play 30 secs of it.
7) the ringtone should now be in ringtones section. if not add the .m4r from the desktop.

takes about a minute to do after you get used to it. ive made about 40 now.
and its free too

There's an app called Ringtone Designer Pro you should check out as well. It costs 79c but it let's you edit and save the ringtones in the app itself rather than worrying with any of that iTunes stuff. You can select what part of the song you want, make it as long or short you need and you can also record your own sounds if you want.

I did this all up as far as part 5. I didn't know how to change the .m4a to .m4r I dragged it from iTunes to the desktop and the name didn't have .m4a in it atall.
I right-clicked on the song on the desktop and went into Properties, the file name was "MPEG-4 Audio File (.m4a)" I don't know how to change this. I looked up videos on youtube and still I can't.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
