I just purchased the 80 gig i-pod and am having a hell of a time with i-tunes. It seems like it might be ok for small capacity i-pods but for the 80 Gig it is a major pain in the ass. Does anyone know of a program that might be easier. Also how to convert avi files to play on i-pod.

An alternative program to iTunes is a program called SharePod (http://www.sturm.net.nz/website.php?Section=iPod+Programs&Page=SharePod) which is freeware. You might want to give that a shot.

To convert an AVI file to an iPod file you can also use a freeware program called Videora iPod Video Converter (http://www.videora.com/en-us/Converter/iPod/)

Hope this helps

Hope this helpsIs this the only good converter for iPod? I used DVD Fab today to convert one of my DVDs and it only took about 30 minutes for a 104 min movie. The end product looks decent until you expand it to fit the screen and everything is annoyingly stretched. I also messed with Super C but it takes way too long to encode. After 30 minutes it wasn't even at 5%.

Anyone tried other converters with any success?

For Windows or Mac?

For Mac, I use either DVDRemaster Pro (For DVDs) or iSquint for every other kind of file to convert.

Yeah, Videora is the shit.I need to see if I could have it shrink my digital copy of Dark Knight. That damn thing is 1.6gb. No reason for it to be that big on an iPod.

EDIT

Damn, it can't do a copyrighted file. Why the hell does it have to be 1.6gb for crying out loud.

Does anyone know how to shrink a copyrighted m4v file? I can't find anything in my searches.
