Re: Moive Copy

You must drag the movie into iTunes & then sync your iPod. Make sure that you have the option to sync movies enabled in your iPod settings when connected. See this Apple support page.

If the movie won't copy to the iPod after following these steps, chances are that the movie isn't in an iPod compatible format. Videos must be encoded in a compatible format to sync. See the Apple FAQ about iPod videos.

How should i put pictures and video

Plug your iPod into your computer, open the iPod folder go into pictures and all your photos are going to be there. Then minimize that on half the screen, open the photos in your library on your computer and minimize it to the other half
if your screen. You can either drag on pic from you computer library to your iPod library; or you can right click on the photo you want, click copy, then place the cursor on the iPod library and right click again, and click paste.

If your video is already in mp4 format, you can drag and drop it into iTunes library. Plug in your iPod to computer, iTunes will detect the iPod automatically, then click iTunes menu "File -> Sync iPod", the mp4 video will be transferred to your iPod.
Otherwise, you have to convert the movie to iPod compatible mp4 video, and this step by step guide will show you how to do that. This way works pretty well with my iPod touch.
Hope it helps. Feel free to email me if you need further help.

Cant watch dvd movie on ipod touch

I think you should change another DVD Ripper. Maybe you can try to use Leawo DVD to iPod Video Converter.

Leawo Free DVD to iPod Converter is a totally DVD to iPod converter free software, while Leawo DVD to iPod Converter Pro is an extremely powerful DVD iPod Converter that can convert DVD to iPod MP4 without limitations for iPod Touch, iPod Touch 4, etc.

How do i load movies into ipod

Hi, this is how I load movies from DVD onto my iPod Touch. Two programs are required, DVD Shrink and Handbrake. They are both available to download for Free. I use DVD Shink 3.2 and Handbrake 0.9.3 but other versions are also available. Just Google to find them.
DVD Shrink is used to extract just the movie from the contents (menus etc) of the DVD, and Handbrake is then used to convert the movie into an .mp4 or .mv4 file which can be played on your iPod Touch. Load the movie file into iTunes on your computer (File>Add File to Library) and copy it onto your iPod Touch.

Can not put music video's on my ipod

1 Locate videos. There are four main places where you can find legal videos intended for iPod use. The iTunes store (where videos can be directly downloaded) and video podcasts are certainly the most popular, but digital copies from DVDs as well as personal digital videos can also be put on the device.
2 Import your videos into iTunes. If you have downloaded the videos from iTunes or have downloaded a video podcast from the service, this step has been done for you (as well as step 3), and you can proceed to step 4. However, if you are trying to put digital copies, or personal videos on the iPod, put all of the videos in a central folder on the desktop. Go to iTunes and select the "Add file to iTunes" to import the contents of your folder to the iTunes program.
3 Convert non-iTunes files. iPods only work with MPEG-4 videos, so if you are uploading videos of other formats, such as AVI or WMV, they will need to be converted with the iTunes program. Highlight the videos you need to convert and right-click to pull up a sub-menu. Select "convert" to begin the process. Alternately, you can drag the files into the iTunes conversion queue, which is on the right side of the program. You will see a notice when your files are finished converting.
4 Sync your iPod. When your new video files are ready, simply plug your iPod Classic into a USB port and then drag the video files you wish to put on your device over the iPod icon. The icon will then change to "syncing" status. Wait a few minutes while the videos are transferred. Once the icon has changed back to normal, simply press the eject button and unplug your iPod.
i recomend trying the arcsoft media converter 3 for starters and go from there

Down loading movies?

Hey Chappy 2,

Due to the copy protection encoded into most DVD's, you won't be able to use the standard drag-and-drop interface that many MP3 players use if you are looking to copy a movie file onto your player. Additionally, most DVD's will contain movie files in a format that may not be able to be recognized by the Zune itself (such as .VOB and .IFO file types).

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the Zune currently supports .W4V, .MP4, and .WMV file formats while providing limited support .MOV (QuickTime) video files. Unfortunately this means that in order to copy a movie file over to your Zune, it would need to be present on the DVD or your computer in one of these recognizable formats.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
