Default How to transfer pictures, video, & ringtones for Motorola RAZR V3

Is this the best way to transfer JPG pictures, MP4 videos, and MP3
ringtones back and forth between my new Motorola RAZR V3 cellphone and my
Windows XP computer?

After much googling, I came up with the following procedure which worked
for me (and which I'd like you to help us improve).

0. Obtain & install Motorola Phone Tools v4.3.6
http://direct.motorola.com/ens/MPT/MPT_FullSpecs.asp
1. Connect your Motorola phone via a standard USB cable
to the Windows XP computer (bluetooth would be better)
2. In MPT "Multimedia Tools", bring up the "File Transfer Studio"
to transfer pics & videos back & forth between the telephone
& the Windows XP computer
3. In MPT "Multimedia Tools", bring up the "Melody Studio"
to create, edit, & transfer ringtones & music back & forth
between the telephone and the PC
4. In "Multimedia Tools", bring up the "Video Studio"
to edit & transfer videos back & forth between the telephone
and the WinXP computer

Is this the best way to transfer your pictures, videos, and ringtones back
and forth between the Motorola RAZR V3 cell phone and the WinXP computer?

Or do you have a better way to transfer files back and forth?

One problem I had was that every audio ringtone I created by singing into
the microphone using Motorola Phone Tools had an audible annoying whine.

After googling for a while, I found out about the wondrous
alt.comp.freeware Audacity and Lame programs which instantly eliminated
that whine using the exact same equipment.

If you have a BETTER method of creating ringtones of your own singing
voice, then please post the better solution here!

CREATE YOUR OWN RINGTONE:
0. Install Audacity sound recording & editing freeware
http://audacity.sourceforge.net
1. Download & unpack Lame MPEG Audio Layer III (MP3) encoder freeware
http://www-users.york.ac.uk/~raa110/audacity/lame.html
2. Start Audacity & tell it to point to lame for MP3 encoding
Edit > Preferences > File Formats > 'Find Library'
After you select the LAME "lame_enc.dll" file you unpacked,
MP3 exporting will then be available.
3. Start a new project to create .mp3 ringtones by pressing
the RECORD & STOP buttons in Audacity.
4. In Audacity, "File > Export as MP3" or "File > Export as WAV"
to save your ringtone to the WinXP computer disk.

TRANSFER YOUR NEW RINGTONE TO YOUR MOTOROLA RAZR V3 CELLPHONE:
0. Obtain & install Motorola Phone Tools v4.3.6
http://direct.motorola.com/ens/MPT/MPT_FullSpecs.asp
1. Connect your Motorola phone via a standard USB cable
to the Windows XP computer (bluetooth would be better)
2. In MPT "Multimedia Tools", bring up the "File Transfer Studio"
to transfer pics & videos back & forth between the telephone
& the Windows XP computer
3. In MPT "Multimedia Tools", bring up the "Melody Studio"
to create, edit, & transfer ringtones & music back & forth
between the telephone and the PC
4. In "Multimedia Tools", bring up the "Video Studio"
to edit & transfer videos back & forth between the telephone
and the WinXP computer

Being brand new to the Motorola RAZR V3, I ask if there is a
better way to create, and transfer JPG pictures, MP4 videos,
and WAV/MP3 ringtones back and forth between the Motorola
RAZR V3 cell phone and the WinXP computer?

My first ringtones were distorted and almost blew the speakers so here's
what I found out that I WISHED I had known when I created my first set of
ringtones.

Hints on creating Motorola RAZR V3 ringtones.
- Create a 21 to 25 second WAV file using Audacity freeware on WinXP
- Don't go any higher than a sampling rate of 22.05 Khz
- Effect Fade In at about 2% and Effect Fade Out at around 19%
- Make sure you "Split Stereo Track" into a single track
- Then, close one of the two tracks
- Ctrl+A, Quick Mix,
- Increase volume with Ctrl+A, Effect, Equalize to +9 db at 1000 Hz
- Remove base with Ctrl+A, Effect, High Pass Filter, 150 Hz
- Compress to MP3 with RazorLame freeware
- Set constant bitrate by unchecking the variable bit rate (VBR)
- Set bitrate 32 kbps mono, set sampling rate to 22.05 kHz
- The final ringtone file size should be less than 120 kb on disk

Transfer the ringtone to your Motorola RAZR V3 using Motorola Phone Tools
or P2KTools.

According to NineToez at
http://www.ninetoez.net/moto/maketones.html
"The Vxxx series is incapable of telling the difference between
stereo or mono, but the purpose for splitting the track here
is for saving file size. You will need to make the single track
a mono track as well...The software will recognize a soliatary
track and mix to mono automatically"

However, the date of this otherwise excellent ringtone-creation tutorial is
Sept. 23, 2004 - so maybe the Motorola RAZR V3 made later can actually play
stereo ringtones. I don't know. If the Motorola RAZR V3 can't play stereo
ringtones, then we're wasting space giving it stereo if it can't handle it.

Does anyone know if the Motorola RAZR V3 can actually play stereo files?

What format are you trying to transfer?

Try JPEG and GIF at the native resolution of your phone, 176220 for the
original RAZR V3, 240x320 for some later versions.
