Problems with playing

I know this might sound like a dumb question, but i just receieved my Archos and i am extremely satisfied with it. The only problem i have is that when i try to convert my movies so that the player can read it via Windows Media Player 11, it says the player doesn't read it. Can anyone help me?

The player only supports MPEG-4 encoded AVI files like DivX, XviD, etc. It WILL NOT read Real Media files, Windows Media 11, etc. There are a bunch of programs out there to convert different media into AVI's. For converting VOB files, try FlaskMPEG. It'll take an MPEG 1 or 2 and convert it to AVI.
