Re: downloading movie length DVD to iriver x20

Yes, you need to convert all your movies to a format iRiver and understand and play.

Here's a link:
Movie Converter for iRiver and instructions

I'm not sure whether Movie Converter supports original DVD files. If that is not the case, then you'll have to convert DVD video into a format that iRiver X20 can use, and then feed that new video to Movie Converter.

However, that would be a bit redundant: to save on time and quality, you could use other video Conversion tools, such as SUPER:

After loading your DVD, you set the parameters to mirror those accepted by your iRiver model. In case of iRiver X20, those parameters are:

Extension: AVI [[also known as container]]
Video Codec: WMV9 SP, MPEG-4 SP [[MPEG-4 = XVID, DIVX]]
Video Resolution: max 320 × 240
Video Framerate: max 30 fps
Video Bit Rate: max 512 kbps

After successful conversion, upload your new video file to your iRiver X20 and play it back. If it plays [and plays correctly] - then congratulations - it works! If it does not play, then you might have made a mistake while setting the output parameters in SUPER.

Hope it helps. Rate me. Thanks.

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.

IRiver X20 movie problem

yea the iriver x20 isn't very reliable when it comes to video files. there could be like 10 things wrong with the codec and even if u fix all of them it doesn't help. your best bet is to convert to wmv using the iriver program or another program like winavi converter. its really fustrating i know but its just how the iriver works.
