Some phones automatically treat any audio file smaller than a certain size (such as 300 KB) as a ringer, and files larger as music.

For standard-length songs (4 minutes or so) recorded at a decent quality (bitrate of 128 or better) this is no problem.

Look at the lists on your phone. If it's the shorter songs that are treated by the phone as ringers, than this is probably the issue you're running into.

If your "songs" are really smaller than 1 MB, then they are unusually small song files. I suspect you have ripped your music at an unusually low bitrate like 32 kbps. That's great for fitting more songs onto your phone, but the sound quality is absolute crap. Most people prefer a bitrate of at least 128 kbps for decent sound quality, ...
