Default Having problems transfering files to my cellphone with a usb cable

This involves the computer so I put it in here as the mobile section is pretty dead.

Why does my phone say invalid file type whenever I transfer a ringtone to it?

Ok, I have a samsung sgh - t329 and I had to buy a usb cable cause I guess I don't have access to the internet feature on it. I just got the cable and now when I try to transfer the files using the phone explorer that the cd installed, it says the file types are invalid. I got this (pu651d19.dm) ringtone from ventones and this (Go+Go+Power+Rangers.m4r) ringtone from myxer tones. Neither of them are considered valid. Help? Different program to use or what?

You need to convert the format of the ringtones....
What formats does your phone support?

Idk, I couldn't find anything about it in the manual. I found this page and it says it supports midi and mp3, but that can't be right because it didn't like mp3s either.

Edit: Well ok, mp3s work. I was just trying to put the file in the sounds folder instead of downloaded sounds. Recommend a converter?

nvm, I'm good
