    Hi all,

    New to iPodTouch ( new to iPods full stop ) - I have a few clips that I'd like to sync to my iPT. They have been taken on various phones, and are in .avi, and .mov formats. I've loaded them into iTunes noo problem, and they play fine.

    In the sync window they show up fine, but when syncing I get the message:

    " 'Name of clip' was not copied to your iPod because it can not be played on this iPod "

    Also, can you use .WMV files?


    cheers:)

    Got the answer yesterday - place you clips in iTunes ( if you try to sync them now you'll be told the iPod cant play them so they weren't sync'd ) - in iTunes, highlight the clips you want to sync, then go to 'Advanced', and then 'Convert Selection for iPod'. They'll now copy over.

    case solved
