Hello everyone,
Haven't been here in a while. Anyways, I recently purchased the Transcend 8GB mp3 player. I was so excited to get it at a cheap price, and it seemed mac-friendly too. One problem: videos must be .mtv format (or so I've heard, read, and think). I've tried adding videos from other formats, but it's a no go. The player came with a CD that converts the videos, but it is windows only. Do you know any programs that could possibly convert videos to .mtv?
Thanks,
-Skull

bumping this up in case anybody knows the answer. I just bought 3 Coby MP610 for my kids (I thought it was a steal for $35 at Toys R Us!). The packaging says it's Mac compatible, but I have looked everywhere trying to find something that will convert my video files to .mtv files. It appears that everything is Windows based including the converter on the Coby website. If I can't find anything I'm just going to return them and buy a refurbished Nano (which I probably should have done in the first place). They'll just have to share (insert major headache here).

HELP....PLEASE....for my sanity.

Congratulations, you have discovered WHY Apple has 90% of the MP3/video player market conquered.

It's because Apple doesn't lie to you, and because they don't make cheap pieces of crap.

Now go and get a Nano. You might want to look at getting two older (refurb) nanos from Apple's refurb store instead ...
