Cisco Custom Ringtones

I am trying to make a custom ringtone for the 7940 phones.   I  have found the ring tone in wav format (24 CTU) and converted it to raw using cool edit.  However when I transfer it to the cisco system there is a problem playing the tone.  It comes out of the phone all distorted.  

I have checked the setting and it all appears OK.  

Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like maybe you are not making the RAW file to the right specifications:

    * Raw PCM (no header)
    * 8000 samples per second
    * 8 bits per sample
    * uLaw compression
    * Maximum ring size  16080 samples
    * Minimum ring size  240 samples
    * Number of samples in the ring must be evenly divisible by 240
    * Ring should start and end at the zero crossing

(Make sure your sampling, bits and compression are correct!)
