Yesterday I burned a DVD onto my MacBook using Handbrake. I'm now trying to use Handbrake to convert the file to make it suitable for play on my iPod. I get the message "No valid source found". Can anyone help?

It will not work.
Handbrake is simply for ripping DVDs, you could/should have selected the format the DVD converted to in the menu on the right and it would be in the proper format for it to work.

There are programs out there like iSquint that can convert video files on your computer without you needing the DVD. Best of luck!

You can drag the movie to iTunes, then right-click it in iTunes and choose Convert for iPod.
