    You need to convert video files to MPEG-4 or something along those lines, if you google "videora" that will take you to a link to download a conversion program. Once converted you can import the video onto itunes and then onto your ipod...

    I used to use an avi convertor to convert to mp4 or ipod files. worked fine for me, cant remember what the convertor is called though sorry

    I use software called Cucusoft to convert to MPEG4 format and drag them into itunes.
