    I have several hundred movies in itunes that I used Handbrake to copy over, however I am unable to transfer any of these movies to my iPod. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    And this site gives the information which formats are supported by the iPod touch e.g.

    If you're trying to put them on a Touch there's a workaround, regular iPod I think you're screwed.

    Apple broke that a few versions of iTunes ago. Sucks because I had a bunch that played fine and then after an upgrade - poof. Won't play, transfer or show up on the iPod.

    As cinematographer wrote, Handbrake, iPod preset.

    I have been using the following presets:

    iPod Legacy

    Format: MP4 file
    Large file size= checked
    iPod 5G support= checked

    Video Codec: H.264 (x264)
    Average bitrate (kbps): 950

    2-pass encoding= checked

    Movies play great on my Apple Tv with these settings, however I can't transfer them to my new iPod classic.

    Any suggestions would be helpful
