    Several apps will allow you to do that. Do you want to cut out a specific part of the song (for like a notification) or just use the whole thing?

    :welcome: to the forum. I use this Free software: video converter, ipod converter, mp4 converter to get stuff from youtube videos. You dont need another sd. There should be instructions on their web site or in the program.

    It shouldnt be much different from a TB to a D1, so once you have them edited, make a folder on your sd. One called "notifications", for those, and one called "ringtones", for those. Place them in the folder according to how you want to use them. I dont believe you need to be rooted to do this. But note, this isnt how I've done it. This is from what I've seen suggested on the forum. I'm rooted and use a file explorer to place the in \system\media\audio then either \notifications or \ringtones.

    If you run into problems, just google "using ringtones on a droid". Or something like that. Or just ask for help here, or start a new thread here: Hacking Help - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    The TB has the largest one available....32gb.
    I highly doubt you'll need another.

    Thanks Justis, CJM and BlacknBlack.
    I have downloaded the software. I will try your suggestions in a few days.
    It took me a while to figure out TB is Thunderbolt and D1 is Droid1.

    I think this forum will give me lot of info to deal with issues I would have struggled with. I'm going to stay off "Rooting" for a while.
    Thanks again.

    Sorry bout that. I was posting in the new members section, wasn't I. Let us know if you have any questions about making those ringtones.

    Thanks CJM. Please dont apologize as you are helping me.
    I am not very "HI-TECH" and will take probably forever to learn all this and also do stuff.
    I guess I need "Notification" rather than the entire song as a ring tone. I'll work on it this weekend.
    Thanks again.

    Increasing Droid Thunderbolt battery life

    Hi Guys,
    First of all delayed thanks to CJM, BlacknBlack and Justis.
    I now know how to make ringtones and use them.
    I am getting familiar with "TB'. I have dowmloaded lot of free apps which have resulted in decreased battery life. I have a few "App Killers" but no matter how many I 'kill", same and other apps again pop up in a matter of seconds. Is there some way to control this? I know I made a mistake in allowing several apps to have "notifications". Even in "setting" disabling notifications etc does not help.
    HELP

    Dilip :mad:

    My recommendation would be to get rid of your task killers. For a detailed explanation of why check the link in my sig, otherwise I'll write you up a short and sweet one tomorrow (its 4 A.M. here and I'm a little tired lol)
