    This is all new to me. Do I just add the folder containing the movies in iTunes?

    It no different to how you put movies on your ipod, if your iphone is ony manually manage just make sure the movies are the correct format and drag them onto the phone.

    I don't have an iPod and I set iTunes for auto managing. I think I know what I have to do now...

    thanks

    if you download a program called handbrake, you can rip dvds and encode them into the proper iphone format with just one click (then drag that file into itunes) - works wonderfully!

    What sort of file sizes are you seeing with the handbrake compression? I did several movies months ago for my 1g iPhone and they were anywhere from 400-700mb depending on the length of the movie. I stopped messing with it since I only had an 8gb phone and not enough space, but now I've got 16gb so it's enough for movies and music.

    I usually do the 2x encode option at the standard iPhone template they and an 1.5 hour movie is like 800-900 mbs - its not bad.

    Before I got the iPhone, I laughed at the thought of me watching movies on it but I downloaded a BCS game on it and have watched the game several times on it while waiting for someone in the office

    How to get my own burned movies over to my iphone

    I had the first gen iphone and had no problems getting movies over to the iphone from itunes. All my movies in itunes showed up under the movie tab in the iphone device section when syncing. now with this new 3G phone all i see are available movies that i rented and tv shows, nothing for any movies. All my movies are in the correct format. Is there something im not doing right? This was one of my favorite features of the iphone so it is sorely missed right now

    any input would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Nothing whatsoever has changed with iTunes Movie Syncing between iPhone EDGE and iPhone 3G.... Absolutely nothing whatsoever...

    I guess I'll keep trying. For some reason it will not let me drag things into the iPhone tab
