  • iDevice is forced to be restore (please don't do that).
The causes of the problem could be.

Along using the additional program beside iTunes in order to transfer music or ringtone. One thing you should know, whether iTunes or the other file transferring programs have different methods in transferring music or ringtones to your device, therefore you better not using program other than iTunes (if you don't really need it).
