Angry How can i make an mp3 an alarm sound?

I cannot figure out how to make an mp3 an alarm sound. When you tap on the "bell" above the time in the alarms tab, you only get a few items to chose from. In the sounds folder, I have changed the sound for "reminders" to the mp3 i want to play for the alarm, but the alarm setting conflict with it. Help!

Somebody can correct me if I am wrong but I believe that for alarms the sound has to be in .wav format and it has to be short in length and it has to be dropped into the windows folder.

It probably wont play if its not encoded in wma properly. Just go get a conversion tool to convert it back to WMA

If you have winamp you can convert the mp3 to wav format. To trim you mp3 to lenght, use something like MP3Trim(google it, its free).

did you download winamp from winamp's website? If you use winamp to convert mp3 to wav, press alt+s, go to plugin, output use out_disk.dll and remember to change it back to what it was earlier
