Ok, I'm at my wits end with this ipod. It's brand new, my eighth ipod this year ( when you count all the replacments I received as the 20 gig i had kept breaking) and they have finalls decided to upgrade my replacment to a 30 gig video/photo ipod.

right! to the point..

I, after much effort, have managed to upload some videos into the video library of my ipod. problems:

*I have uploaded a total of 10 videos into the library. After updating the ipod, and disconnecting it, it became apparant that only two of the videos, ( music videos) out of then 10, had succesfully been uploaded onto the ipod.

*after checking the properties of each video, it appeared that the 8 videos which unsucccesfully uploaded were titled 'unavailable' in their properties.

*I downloaded a converter called 'ipodvideora', or something similar to that, and have converted some videos. However, the problem being that when I select the option 'Encode New Video', and I proceed to select a video from the folder 'My Videos', the programme is only showing up certain videos in the folder. help ?

*most of the videos which did work in the converter, and whose properties were changed, are appearing as 'unavailable'. I can watch the video through i-tunes, however the video is non existent on my ipod after I have updated it.

I've searched through the forum, but no one else seems to be highlighting these problems and I have searched on the apple website for help, which was absoloutly useless.

any help would be much appreciated.

This free converter was posted in another thread, see if it helps:

I don't have a video ipod, but I have uploaded video to a PSP. Having the right software tools makes all the difference! Odd for Apple not to have a more user friendly solution.

edit: It looks like thier 'solution' is QuickTime Pro (for $29.95) :tazz:

Buying quicktime was exactly where apple led me, yes. There's no way I'm doing that. But see it's unfair, as I have checked the apple store for the videos I have in my documents, but seeing as it's mostly my friends who have just recorded bands, or music videos of underground bands, apple obviously does not sell these videos in i-tunes. So what can I do?

I have videora, and it is converting the files to m-peg4, however the files refuse to tranfer from the library to my ipod.. really no idea what I'm doing wrong.
