Well, there are several problems that could be happening:
1. You can make sure you converted it right by converting it through software such as Handbrake (Google it)
2. Make sure that your computer that you are trying to get the video from is the computer that you normally sync with. You cannot get video or music from any other computer except for the one you sync with.
3. Either turn off "automatically sync my iPod with this computer" or import the movie into iTunes first and then transfer it

How to watch DVD on iPod touch 3G?


It is great that Apple's new iPod Touch 3G can hold up to 80 hours video, but as we all know, DVD files cannot be played on iPod, because all the iPod devices do not support DVD format. You can only enjoy the high quality DVD movie under the premise of owning a DVD player. But if you want to watch the DVD movies on portable devices like iPod touch, you need an application which enables you to convert DVD to video formats, for example, mp4, mov, m4v etc.

In fact, there are dozens of third party solutions that will enable you to convert DVD to iPod. Some of them can work perfectly, while some may not. After trial experiences, I may introduce a powerful DVD to iPod Ripper for you.

How do i get movies from a dvd to my ipod nano


You need an iPod converter software. These are available throughout the web. I would check out DVD FAB. You can try the Beta version 8QT for free for one month. The software is very straight forward. It has multiple formats for multiple devices. Check it out for free and then decide if you want to use it. Or download the beta version for a month and compress as many movies as you can in thirty days. hope this helps
