I've added the whole Super Mario Bros. original soundtrack and replaced the genre from soundtrack to ringtone in my new Lumia 800 from Zune.
I thought the 40 seconds/1MB requirement was a joke because none of the older phone models required that.
After adding the album of ringtones, I noticed that only the ringtones below 40 seconds made the "Custom ringtones" list.
Now I'm wondering where the other songs of the album are.
Do they consume memory?
Where can I delete them?
Did the phone delete the other songs automatically?
Did the phone even bother adding the songs that did not fit the requirements?
Can someone provide an explanation?
I'm a little obsesive compulsive about this.
I hate loose ends.
Thanks for answering!

When I swipe across songs in Zune Music+Videos, the ringtones genre is not there.
Is it normally there?
Is there a music folder in the phone?
Zune Music+Videos is the folder that every song I transfer pop up.

No need to mention in the subject line..but in your post (..anyways its already there..)
BTW, did you check in the MUSIC Folder on the device ?
@ 93tid - OP has mentioned its Nokia Lumia 800 in the very first line in Message 1 ..

I've figured out what music folder (I think) you guys were referring to and none of the custom ringtones I currently have are there.
By handset, do you mean the model of the phone?
I didn't know you had to write down the model of the phone on the title when you can write it in the description.
Sorry, my bad, I did re-read your post twice but must be going blind not to notice it.
Suggest you add just one song (thats not falling in the prescribed limit) to the Ringtone folder and see if it throws any error ..

I just did farby's advice of trying to drag a ringtone that doesn't meet the phone's requirements.
When I did that, it showed itself on Zune.
When I removed the USB cord to check the song library and ringtones, it was not there.
When I plugged it back in, the song disappeared.
Thats what it seems.. When you put something more than the prescribed limit to the Ringtone folder..its getting rejected.. But better if it gave some message ..
