MASTERforge is on a distinguished road

MASTERforge is offline

My sister offered to buy my Ipod nana and I choose to upgrade to Ipod Video.

Now I have the Ipod Video I realise its not a simple case of drag and drop any more I need a PHD in video editing and several programs to convert media.

I don't know anyone else that has one so they cant guide me through it. I would like to know what people are doing with theirs? Are they watching DVD's? Downloading podcasts?

How do I get started? I have handbrake which has been quite unsucessfull as it crashes?

Can anyone point me in the right direction for using this piece of equipment?

Isquint to get the file to mp4. Once in mp4 just add it to itunes. from there you just need to plug in the ipod and go to the movie/tvshow/podcast tabs...from here just click the playlist/movies you want transferred.

As for podcasts just go to the itunes store and get some for free. I have a few of the national geographic and discovery channel type deals.

QUOTE Thanks
