    I converted two DVDs using Handbrake, but when I synced all my files to Touch, the touch synced them all except the movies and said could not sync the two movies because they could not be played on this ipod, and then in detail it says wrong file format? huh? They are both mpeg-4 and they play just fine in itunes..

    Hey so does handbrake work with any dvd? Because I tried to rip MI 3 and it told me that it was unreadable. Is this normal or is there something wrong?

    Once there in I-Tunes right click on the movie and click convert.

    You have to decryp it first to your HD on a PC.

    After using handbrake to rip the DVD, use VisualHub to convert it to iPhone format. Works perfectly for my iPod Touch.

    I use DVD43. Just keep it running on your pc in the background, pop in a movie, and handbrake is good to go.

    I can't seem to get them to open in iTunes.

    I convert the video using PQDVD to iPod and then try to drag the files into iTunes but they just dont seem to appear. If i try drag them directly onto my iPod Touch it just comes up with the error message basically saying that the file is not compatible.

    I dont understand this as it worked perfectly with my 30g Video iPod.

    I've also tried using Handbrake but that wont open either avi files or any DVD I try to use with it. :confused: :confused: :confused:

    I tried Videora, and it stopped at 92% finished and then a box comes up saying something like, can't save or access the disk? It's not on a disc, but on the HD.

    Why can't I get a converted Handbrake file to convert?
