    I backed up all my videos off of my X and tried to sync them to my iphone and only one video came on...it says that the others cant be played on the iphone, but they are all the same type of videos (shot with my X or BB) so why arent they working???

    as far as I know they are all the same format bc they were all either shot on my droid X or my BB tour...some of them came over but others didnt...I have to check on my home computer (thats where they are saved) to see if they are in diff formats...either way is there any way to convert them so I can put them on my new iphone?? Thanks!

    I'm thinking if they're not the same format then you need to change the file
    extensions on them on your PC first. The file extension that is used for the
    iPhone videos and see if it works then.

    Through the folder options you'll see an option to be able to view the file extensions on files overall. Once you set it up that way you can edit the filename and the extension.

    It's not as simple as just changing the extension of the file. You'll have to actually convert the file.

    Yeah, I think you have to convert the video file, just use Handbrake to help you, the new version 0.9.5 adds presets for the iPhone 4, use it~

    I figured that out Saturday night however after I converted the files they played the video without sound...could you recommend a program to convert them with? I cant remember the one I used - I deleted it. Thanks!
