I use handbrake to convert the movie into an MP4 and when I swing it over to my Micro SD card and check the video through my phone, It doesn't work. I have sound but no video. I have tried formatted the SD card and am at a loss here. Any help?
I have a 2.4 GHz macbook running snow leopard with the newest version of Itunes.

My BEST guess is the mp4 does not contain video in the correct codec that your phone will play.

Handbrake defaults to H.264. Look up your phones video capabilities, and in the video section of handbrake you may just want to try adjusting the codec to another setting (ie: Mpeg-4 (ffmpeg).

My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)
