    Recently I've put several videos on my iPod, but I'm facing a problem. The video works fine, but there is no accompanying sound. How can I fix this?

    Is there sound if you watch the video on your computer? I've had a similar problem...

    What format are they? I've found that converting MPEG-1 or 2 videos using QuickTime or iTunes will result in a loss of sound.

    They are MPEGs. Is there any way that I can stop this?

    I'll assume they are not from the iTunes Store.

    Did you rip them from a DVD or acquire it somwhere else?

    Somewhere else. They are clips, not a full episode of a show or a movie.

    I believe that iSquint can convert them successfully. The preferred format for the 640x480 iPods is "optimise for TV" with H.264 turned on.
