Open Tunes, Click on your Library.

Right click on the song and click convert Selection to AAC
Right click on the 30 second version and select Show in Windows Explorer
The file that you open in Windows Explorer. The format will be m4a
Change the m4a format to m4r. So it would be yourmusicname.m4r. A message will popup about it being unstable, click ok when you see it. If you do not see the extension. Open My Documents, Select Tools, Folder Options. Select View, and uncheck “hide extensions for the known file type” after you change it.
Go back into tunes and remove the 0:30 second version from your library. Right click delete.
Windows explorer should still be open. Double click on the .m4r file and it should add the file to your Ring tone folder.
Now sync your library with your phone and the ring tone will be added.
Note: After you have created the ring tone, make sure you go back to the song and change the setting of the song length to the original. If you delete the 0:30, it will auto-fill in the full length.
