    What format are the files? A quick, easy way to do it would be to open up the file in iMovie, provided it is compatible, and choose share. Then just click iPod.

    i thought it was the right format... .AVI. i just used Mactheripper and Handbrake to put a movie onto the ipod for personal viewing and it put it into a .MPEG4 format and it went onto the ipod no sweat. is there a way i can change the format of the home video?

    this is the thread you need to read. I've followed these steps and it looks great (on my friends 5G iPod by the way).
