I have several hundred movies in itunes that I used Handbrake to copy over, however I am unable to transfer any of these movies to my iPod. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Which preset did you use to create the files in handbrake?

And this site (http://www.apple.com/ipodtouch/specs.html) gives the information which formats are supported by the iPod touch e.g.

If you're trying to put them on a Touch there's a workaround, regular iPod I think you're screwed.

Apple broke that a few versions of iTunes ago. Sucks because I had a bunch that played fine and then after an upgrade - poof. Won't play, transfer or show up on the iPod.

As cinematographer wrote, Handbrake, iPod preset.

I have been using the following presets:

iPod Legacy

Format: MP4 file
Large file size= checked
iPod 5G support= checked

Video Codec: H.264 (x264)
Average bitrate (kbps): 950

2-pass encoding= checked

Movies play great on my Apple Tv with these settings, however I can't transfer them to my new iPod classic.

Any suggestions would be helpful
