How to create ringtone from my music?

I've been able to download some of my short music clips and use the clips as ringtones.  However, for the longer pieces of music, I want to use just 30 second of it.  I've already imported the audio file into my BB's micro SD card. 

 

The BB Media Manager Help Center provides the following instructions (below), but when I try to right-click on the file, I don't get the "Edit with Quick Sound Editor" function at all.  I've tried everything to get this function with no avail.  Please help!

 

 

You can create ringtones from existing audio clips—such as your favorite song—with the Quick Sound Editor.

 

To create a ringtone:

  • In Media Manager, browse to the audio file from which you want to create a ring tone.
  • Right-click the audio file and choose Edit with Quick Sound Editor.
  • If necessary, display the Trim & Fade view by clicking Trim Fade.
  • Move the play head to the beginning of the section you want to use as your ringtone, either by clicking Preview or by clicking the waveform.
  • Click Set Start.
  • Move the play head to the end of the section you want to use as your ringtone.
  • Click Set End.
  • Click Create Ringtone.
  • Specify a file name and location for the new file, and click Save.
  • To exit from Quick Sound Editor, click Close.
  • The ringtone is added to the All Music > Ringtone Smart View.

    Re: How to create ringtone from my music?

    When I try to take 30 seconds of my own songs, I don't have an option for Edit with Quick Sound Editor.  Is that something I can download? I'm really interested in using my own music to make my ringtones.

     

    Thanks for your help!
