    i ripped my entourage dvd using handbrake and added four episodes to my itunes..it went under "movies"..i see the four movies there and when i sync my iphone, it doesnt sync the movies!! i clicked "sync movies" and tv shows but nothing happens..the files are in .MP4..any insight? when i right clicked one of the episodes it gave me the option of converting to iphone/ipod format..but its been about 25 minutes and its only done converting about 1/4 the way!!

    I have always found I need to use Handbrake and then use Visual Hub to make it usable for the iPhone!

    Right click the file in itunes and click 'convert for iphone'

    Job done.


    edit: I should learn to read before offering advice. The conversion option does take a while, but it does work.

    ive found that the best way to solve this is to make sure the "insert ipod atom" box in handbrake
