    Hi everyone, I am a newbie here, so forgive me if I've put this in the wrong place.

    I used Macthe Ripper to rip my sons chuggington dvd to my macbook pro, then i used handbrake to convert it, i managed to copy the converted file to my itunes library, but when i symc my iphone 3gs, it says it won't copy the file because it can't be played on my iphone.

    Several forums mention using the iphone/ipod touch preset when converting in Hnadbrake, now i may be a numpty, but i cant find this preset anywhere?! The closest thing i can see is an apple button/setting.

    when i selected apple and told it to play again, it said it would overwrite the prev converted verison. It took hours to convert the first time, if I do this, will it really work? Or will I waste another 3 hours?!

    Somebody help me?!?!:confused:

    In Handbrake
    Top right "Toggle Presets"
    Select the disclosure triangle next to "Apple" to show all the Apple presets
    Select "iPhone / iPod Touch"
    It will take just as long to do the second time, but should now sync

    Alternatively you can select the version already in iTunes, in the "Advanced" dropdown there is an option to "Create iPod or iPhone Version". This will perform the conversion within iTunes (in my experience much slower)
