    I ripped a DVD using Handbrake and it said it would be compatible with the iPhone. I tried to add it to my iPhone when it said it couldn't be played on it. It's a mp4 file. I also tried the right click and clicked "Convert to play on iPhone" but it takes too long. Is that all I can do?? Please I need help on this

    Have you added the ripped DVD to your iTunes library? I use Handbrake and either rip my DVD's in Low Res for my Nano 3rd Gen or I rip in iPhone/Touch for my wife's touch and my iPhone. All have worked just fine after adding them to my iTunes library.

    Well I don't know what happened with Handbrake, but I just went with the Convert to iPhone option in iTunes and then my sister shut down my computer when I had about 15 min. left. I takes about a day to convert, but I started over and it's converting as I write this. Thanks for your input people! :)
