i think you can capture a section of a song using real player but im not sure
Try googling
"how do i capture a section of a song for my phone"
or words to that effect,you can usually see something that seems to relate to what your looking for
Asking these type of questions in a google search as opposed to asking on a bike :? forum
Gets you quicker answers
i use this method when the computer f$%^& up to quickly localize the problem :D

Use Cool Edit (or similar package), load the MP3 and snip the bit you want and save it as a new file, copy to phone, job done.

Cool Edit has now been bought by Adobe and is known as Adobe Audition but if you sniff around you will find old versions of Cool Edit you can use.

If you have Nero on the PC for burning cds then you can use the Nero Wave Editor that comes with it to cut&paste the section of audio you want into a new track.

Failing that, drop me a PM and if you email me the audio I'll edit it for you! :)

I was more than just a little surprised when I simply dragged n dropped an itunes track straight onto my Sony Ericsson - no issues whatsoever...

Cool Edit Pro was the name of the older versions :D
