    1. Convert them with an iPod-friendly program like HandBrake, then add them to your iTunes library.

    2. They are out. Speck Products has released theirs, for one.

    Forbidden, you do not have access to that server
    you could also use just an ipod case if you wanted to.

    Invisibleshield, invisbleshield, invisibleshield!

    This is one of the best ipod products I've ever used. At $24 or $29 or whatever it is, it is WELLLLLL worth it. My ipod is still scratchless (received a few days after the announcement), and i carry it bare in my pocket... with pens... and change... and the headphones...

    Look into it.

    Ok, HandBrake is more for takinig a DVD movie, and turning it into something digital on your computer. One way to take a digital movie and turning it into something for your iPod is using Quicktime Pro, which will cost you $29, but for me, it was worth it since most of my stuff is ripped from DVD into mp4 using HandBrake, but if its Divx stuff you downloaded from kazaa or something, then it wont work. The other program I have used is iSquint, which can do batch output, so I can do a whole season of a TV show and not just one episode, then have to start the next one. www.versiontracker.com is a great place to find software. Thsi is what I found when looking for ipod video: http://www.versiontracker.com/php/s...on=search&str=ipod+video&plt[]=macosx&x=0&y=0
