Just get a professional to do it. When I bought my Ibanez, I had the people at the store tune it for me. Haven't had to tune it since. If you're wanting to go back and forth between tunings, a Floyd Rose style bridge isn't for you. I would get another guitar that is for a different tuning.

You obviously can't have done that much research. You can't just detune a floyd. You need to adjust the springs in the back.

yeahh, i got an edge 3.... changing tunings isnt the easiest of things to do sucessfully............

just keep tuning it, it will get better as the strings get worn in a bit, i dont get why people get so many problems with tuning guitars with tremolos on, its not exactly rocket science.

ok, after trial and error and just messing with it, i got it in tune.... Now one reason i wanted the guitar is because there are very many good reviews, i wanted a tremelo for the effects, and i wanted a good metal guitar... i knew it wasnt goin to be easy to tune it down but i do know its possible.... The majority of the time i keep it in the standard tune, but i wanted to know how to do so for the off occasion i want to learn a song played in drop D....if anyone could explain or send a link to where i could do find out how

Theres no point using a Floyd if you change tunings alot. Its way too much hassle. If you really need to change tunings alot, get a hardtail guitar for drop tunings and use the one with the Floyd for standard.
That, or get a Tremol-no, then have it set up for standard, and block off the trem when you want to drop tune.

It's not that difficult, so dont worry. I cant remember exactly how close an Edge III is to my jacksons LFR but basically you unlock the nut, tune to the tuning you wanted, lock the nut, if your going lower the bridge will most likely be pitching backwards (up) so to correct this you take off the back plate, use a screw driver to tighten the springs up (clockwise to tighten I believe), replace the back plate and use the fine tuners to tune, if you can't tune with fine tuners unlock the nut and retune and your good to go. Would probably take anyone whos gotten some practice with it 5-10mins but I'm sure many people can do it faster.
