    I feel like a dunce, what am I missing?

    I bought a 30-min kid's video from the iTunes Store. It shows as a 'Protected MPEG-4' file, and plays fine in iTunes. But I can't get it to sync to my 4G nano. Other MPEG-4 movies sync and play fine.

    Is there a setting I'm missing, or is this a restriction? Thanks!

    Which version of the nano do you have? AFAIK, the "fatty" and the newest one can play it. The first and second gens cannot.

    I have a 16GB 'skinny' (4G). Do I need to 'authorize' my ipod to my itunes?

    Bump

    Anyone have an idea why I can't copy a video purchased using iTunes to my 4G nano? Thanks!

    Please don't bump your post. However...

    That is very odd. So just to check. Does other purchased content (e.g. music) work on the nano? Does other non-purchased video work?
