So i followed some advise for getting rid of the registry entry [in Windows Mobile 6.0 on my Blackjack i607] that limited the size of a ring tone to 300kb. I deleted the entry and now when I try to set an mp3 as a ring tone, it says "The file size cannot be larger than 0KB"

Can anyone help me with this problem? I don't know if I can download the registry entry somewhere or write a new one [which I would have no idea how to do].

Please let me know ASAP as I would really appreciate the help.

What reg editor are you using and what exact key did you change?

Emjay.. Check out step 2 and 3.


Samsung BlackJack II Tips for MP3 Ringtone (Get Rid of 300KB size-limit). WMExperts has come up with an interesting workaround and registry edit that allows you to not only set any MP3 of your choosing as a ringtone, but it also gets rid of that annoying 300KB size-limit.

Yes, Now you can use any MP3 file, of any size, as your ringtone!

Here’s the ‘Step by Step’ to do:
1. Save your MP3 to your Samsung BlackJack II’s memory (I like to put my files in “My Documents”).
2. Use your BJ2’s “My Stuff” file explorer (there is the standard Windows Mobile File Explorer and the “My Stuff” file explorer - use the latter) to navigate to your MP3 file.
3. Highlight your MP3, hit “Menu” and set that MP3 as your ringtone.
4. The “My Stuff” browser will ask you if you want to move the file to your “My Sounds” folder - do it. The file gets copied, not moved, to “My Sounds” so your original MP3 file is still chillin’ in the “My Documents” folder.
5. Now to edit the registry to nix that300KB file size limit:
- Go into HKEY_Current User > ControlPanel > Sounds
- Delete the key of FileSizeLimit
6. Done, You should now be able to set any MP3 as your ringtone.

Thank you for posting this for me. Actually, this is the exact process that I followed originally. Now I am faced with the problem from my original post. I followed the above steps and now I get the message previously stated which is why I think I may need that registry key put back in and probably edited with the correct values.

Emjay,

You could use the registry editor to rewrite the correct reg entry. That may help if you know excatly which reg entry you changed.

For the entry to be correct it should include:

Value Name: FileSizeLimit
Value data: 307200
Base: Decimal
Value type: REG_DWORD

The other alternative if to save all your data and contacts off the phone and give it a hard reset. It will wipe the phone clean and rewrite the registry to original. Caution you will lose data. This is the last resort method.

Also in the future you should backup your registry before tweaking.
