    There's an app on the Google Market called Ringtone Maker that works fine. You can search all the sounds on your phone with it.

    I used a app called ringdroid in the past. Any music on your phone worked.

    In my opinion Ringdroid is not good anymore... at least not on the Galaxy Nexus. The app has some kind of social aspect to it now and it just didn't work right for me and kept force closing. It used to be the best ringtone maker but it just seems broken now.

    What's wrong with just using Audacity to clip snippets out of your favorite songs, boost their volume and save them as MP3s? Then just place them in your ringtones folder. Works for me. Or are you looking for something that will actually make the ringtone on your phone without needing a computer?

    Nothings wrong with just using Audacity but if you can do it on your phone without needing a computer, why not? I think its nice to have both options really.

    I've got a similar problem. Neither Ringtone Maker nor Ringdroid will recognize the music that I've loaded on my Galaxy Nexus - at least without some work. I uploaded from iTunes using Google Music and made all music available offline. Neither program found the music. I finally got Ringtone to view the music files after connecting to my PC and locating the files using "Browse" and going into the /sdcard folder (arriving at /android/data/com.google.android.music, etc.). I can now see all of my music files, the the names of the files are meaningless (/1.mp3, /10.mp3). Short of testing each one out, I don't see how to get Ringtone Maker to view these songs with the normal song names. Any suggestions?

    Google Music doesn't download it as a straight simple mp3 - it adds its own coding.

    I create all my ringtones on the computer and use Dropbox to sync

    You can actually save your google music as an mp3 to your sdcard. Select your tune/album & select the option "Make Available Offline".... Your tune/album will now be found in the following folder (mp3 format): /sdcard/android/data/com.google.android.music/cache/music

    It will be renamed and have no tags attached, but you will be able to edit it now in Ringdroid as it is now in mp3 format.

    I use the ringtone maker, previously ringdroid. I recently had my phone factory restored and have had to recreate all my ringtones. The problem is I cannot locate them in my ringtones file. I cannot change my texts to anything other than the default tones on the phone. Is there something I am missing?

    Sounds like you're suffering from ID3 tag garballing. MP3s are a pain. Especially if you download load them from the interweb. MP3s encoded from random sites can have some very weird ID3 tags, with foreign languages and sometimes URLs with crazy symbols.
    So the real problem is Android usually forces apps to read the ID3 tag and not the file name, which is what a browser displays. Additionally if the ID3 tag is crazy Androids menu won't even let you see it so you can assign it as a ringtone.
    One thing, if you use an ID3 editor, sometimes you have to cut-n-paste the MP3 to your PC, then back again for the changes to work.
