Is the video in the movie library file of itunes? If yes,as i assume...Only click on the video once (blue-highlight it, don't open it), and you can usually have the Advanced..Create iPhone version be open not ghosted.

No it's not

No it's in a folder on the pc with several other movies off the internet, They are in Xdiv format. I want to comvert 2 or 3 of them and move them to my Iphone 3g to watch during work break!

I think it has to be moved to itunes first (open with itunes), then you should be able to make a iphone version. I might be missing something though. I see you said a PC, can you have the option to open it with itunes? or drag it into? i know some programs on mac has make phone, ipad, etc. versions(imovie will),that go to itunes ready.. sorry if this don't help..
