    i have a season disc and handbrake wouldn't copy them all down just would let me choose one file. so i copied all the files and put them in a folder. i don't want to transfer them to iTunes because there is 20 files in there. how do i convert it so its like its on one disc then i can transfer it in? this is for apple tv.

    Drag the files to iTunes, ctrl-click on the first one, and click Get Info.
    In the Get Info box, click on the Sorting tab.
    In the Show field, type in "the name of the show".
    In the Sort Name field, type in "the name of the show S1E01".
    Also, under the Options tab, change the Media Kind to TV Show.

    Click the Next button, and add the Show and Sort Names, changing the suffix to S1E02. This will go quite quickly if you copy the name of the show and paste it instead of typing it each time.

    THe shows will now be listed under a single heading under TV Shows, on the aTV and in iTunes.

    The alternative is to merge the files, which is a more complicated process that I've rarely completed without problems. There are some recent threads on "merge m4v" if you do a search.
