I have had a Sony Ericsson V800 for a few days now and I am trying to get
some ringtones onto the phone. I have ran the ringtone files through the
DRM software and now my files have the extension .DM

However, the part I am struggling with is how to actually put them on the
phone. The only new thing I can see on my PC is a 'Removable Disk' in the
'Devices with Removable Storage' section when I click on 'My Computer'. So I
click on the 'Removable Disk' and went to the following folder \MSSEMC\Media
files\audio and I placed the ringtone files (.DM files) in the folder.

When I went to the phone to select them they did not appear.

What I am doing wrong? It is probably something stupid but I just cannot get
it to work.

Can someone please help me sort this problem.

I hope you can help.

I appreciate any help or information given.

Thanks!

Hi Neil,

As far as I can tell, you did everything correct.

Did you unplug the USB cable before checking for the files on the phone?
The Memory Stick (that actually gets connected as "removable drive") is
not accessible by the phone while the USB connection is enabled.

Apart from that, I did the exact same thing as you did. - the .dm files
should then be shown as .mp3 files with a key icon.

You only have to put the *.dm files into the MP3 folder. The phone will
recognize them as mp3 files, will decode them as mp3s and they will
work.
