iTunes Plus + Ringtones = 0

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just started making a couple of ringtones with the new feature in iTunes, just to check it out, so to speak. It just so happens that a good deal of the music I have purchased is iTunes Plus. In what seems like a rather odd twist none of my iTunes Plus files can be made into ringtones. Don't get me wrong, these files are qualified to be ringtone-afied with the little bell icon. Unfortunately after editing them and trying to purchase I get a rather annoying error message.

"Could not create ringtone. An unknown error occurred (-42160). Please try again later."

However, I did successfully make a ring tone, but it was a regular old DRM'm file from the iTunes store.

What gives? Anyone else having this problem or is this the penalty one receives for spending more money on a song with no limitations (supposedly) from Apple?

That's very silly.

You could always chop up the audio how you like in GarageBand and do this.

I've tried it with tracks I didn't buy on iTunes and it works flawlessly.

I know this, however, I was willing to pay the .99 to just quickly get it over with and though it strange to hit this roadblock.
