The Media Converter program that came with my Jazz DV150 runs for a bit then says that the conversion failed. I've tried using other programs, but I end up with a fuzzy movie with small colored bocks poping up around the edges. The specs page is not at all detailed. If I knew what they were more precisely (not all my mp3s play either) I think I could get everything to work fine but I can not seem to get any answers from either ArcSoft or Jazz. Could someone please help me?

Through a little research I found that most Jazz Cameras come with Arcsoft Media Impressions, and Arcsoft Media Convert which can be downloaded at their website. There is a free version of the Impressions software.
The Arcsoft Media Converter only recognizes a limited set of file types. I would download a program called Riva FLV Encoder, and convert the files that the Arcsoft does not recognize to AVI format (the product documentation for Riva says that it converts files to FLV format, but it is quite capable of doing the opposite). Once the video files are converted to AVI format, the Arcsoft Media Converter will recognize them.
Sounds like Philips reached an agreement with Arcsoft. Since the video conversion software is Arcsoft's, Philips does not support it. The last time I remember, Arcsoft charged for most tech support. Welcome to corporate America.
Download the upgraded version of the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter from www.usasupport.philips.com. If the upgraded version still does not recognize certain file types, download a free program called Riva FLV Encoder - it is supposed to be a program that converts video formats to FLV format, but it has the neat feature of being able to do the opposite. Any video file that the Philips does not recognize can be converted to AVI format using Riva. Make sure the audio feature is enabled in Riva or you will get picture and no sound. Once it is converted to an AVI, the Philips Media Converter will see it, and you can either convert the file to a folder, or you can transfer it directly to the GoGear. Note: the Philips Media Converter will not properly convert video files that are longer than 15 minutes long - in order to transfer an entire movie, you will have to use video editing software to break the long file into 15-minute chunks. You will then have to convert the chunks using the Philips Media Converter.
I have a feeling its going to have something to do with what Codecs your converter is using. To the best of my knowledge, the DV150 only supports a certain type of AVI. I'm sorry i can't be more help but i'm not really sure.
