after posting about the external harddrive i tried this method

"You must have missed the memo. Just open your avi files in quicktime and do a save as normally (alowing dependancies). This is basically a 1Mb shortcut file that can be added to your iTunes library. It will then play your avi files right within iTunes and AppleTV as well."

But when i open it in quicktime and saved it, it said it couldnt find the movie or something of that sort what should i do? Thank you for your help

that method should not work in the AppleTV. I am not sure who told you to do that, but that is wrong, unless you have hacked your apple tv to play the unsupported codecs.
