Just open 'em in Windows Media Player classic.

What would that do?

Change the format to mov?

I don't think you can get AVI into iTunes except by converting them to .mov format. As for that, google around for "convert avi mov" or something similar.

New Question:

Is there a way to transfer the songs on iTunes onto my PC?

The guy at the apple store said there is a way but "he couldn't tell me how to do it, his boss would get mad at him"

Man...I didn't realize how tight Apple had all this stuff locked up until reading into this. First, they'll only accept their video format. Now, you can transfer music out of it unless it's onto one of their devices (iPod). Sheesh...

Anyway, I haven't messed with it (don't use iTunes), but here's a link that may help you out. They link to a couple progams that may do it for ya.

DMAC,

To convert any video file into an ipod video, download and install this free, easy to use program: http://www.videora.com/en-us/Converter/iPod/

As far as getting music from iTunes to the PC - I would take the music files from iTunes then place them on your ipod and the use SharePod (free) (http://www.sturm.net.nz/website.php?Section=iPod+Programs&Page=SharePod) to downlod the files from your iPod to your PC

Hmm, Videora seems to be having download problems...of course that just happens to be today.

Thanks though, I will get it.
