I used cucusoft's DVD to Ipod convertor software to encode a test dvd to mpeg4-10 or H.264 file format. They seemed to play fine after being encoded onto the hdd. Used USB thumb drive to bring the files over to desktop. Downloaded Itunes+quicktime. Added them all to itunes playlist and even added them to Ipod. Only problem, is that now all the files just show pink static and sound. When I open the files with real though, they work perfectly. Any ideas?
