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?

Re: Problems with playing

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.
