    :confused: Hi:)
    I'm sure its been asked before but here goes. I've just bought the ipod 5g. Downloaded part of an mp4 off lime wire put it on and it worked no problem. So I tried to do another and it won't let me. I got the message that it needs converting and went on the instructions and followed them with the sample video.
    It says when you have imported the sample into your library go to advanced and click "convert to ipod". sound easy but mine says "convert selection to aac". This just gives me the audio.

    I'm sure your all far better at this stuff than me so can anyone solve this mystery please. Its my first pod and I'm a dumbass.

    Cheers:(

    I use Handbrake to rip DVD's and iSquint to convert downloaded files. I use Likewire myself.

    Both programs work well.

    You're dang right.

    I haven't even turned my PC on since I bought my Powerbook a year and a half ago.

    I'm over it.... Done with the drama.
