Converting Files To Put On Ipod

Question

I couldn't find any discussion groups for EMC 9 so I hope you don't mind me posting this question here.

I would like to put some camcorder video clips from my computer on to my 2Gen iPod Touch.

Is that possible using EMC 9?

 

This is what I have tried so far with no luck.

Under the Video section in EMC 9, I selected the "covert video" option.

Picked the clips I wanted converted.

These clips were in WMV format and I converted them to MPEG-4 Movie format. Everything seemed to go smoothly. No error messages.

I picked the MPEG-4Movie format because based on what i've read, the iPOD plays that format right?

After the files were converted, there were 3 options as to what could be done with the newly converted files.

One of the options was to upload to iPod however, that option was grayed out and I was unable to select it.

I had the Touch connected to the computer and iTunes running at the time.

So, I saved the files on my computer and figured I could import them using iTunes.

No matter what I tried though, I couldn't get iTunes to import them.

 

Apparently I'm doing something wrong and if someone can tell me what that is, I would appreciate it.

 

As mentioned, the files are in MPEG -4 Movie format and the have the Quick Time Player logo on them.

When I tried to open the files I get a error-2010 movies contain invalid data message.

Did emc9 come pre-installed on your pc or did you buy a retail version of it separate and apart from your pc? If the former, there could be limitations on your program ("that option was grayed out").

 

In any event, consider reading this thread in Apple's forum, same error code, but slightly different text message. You may have to play around with your files, either by simply changing the extension or maybe running them through a converter.

Thanks for the reply.

I found out how to do what I wanted to, due to the link you supplied.

It was actually quite simple but I didn't see the file conversion option I needed to use the first couple of times I tried it.

Glad it worked out. :)

 

Enjoy the iPod Touch, I've got an old-fashinoned Classic. ;)
