    ipod files

    hi all,
    just wondering if i could get some help. I recently started using itunes for my ipod video. the problem that i am having is that when i convert files from mpg/mp3 format to mp4, i lose the sound on the ipod. The video works perfectly well but without sound.
    Is there anything I can do to prevent losing sound.

    thanks

    What software are you using to do the conversion?
    What audio setting? - I believe I heard that 48Khz is the highest the iPod will handle with MP4.

    im using itunes because it has an option that converts music videos to ipod (thats what it says on the drop down list). I have no clue about the audio setting. What does it mean?

    It probably means the difference between it working or not <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    You may find some other info here at the iPod FAQ - #16 covers the basics - but I would have thought iTunes would have been able to get the setting right!
    I'm afraid I'm not an iPod user myself, hopefully someone with real-life experience may chip in shortly.

    (Edited by HansV to make URL clickable - see <!help=19>Help 19<!/help>)

    From iTunes help:

    Converting a video to work with iPod
    If you have an iPod that plays video, you can copy videos from your iTunes library to your iPod. An iPod that plays video can only play videos that are optimized for iPod. You can convert most videos to work with iPod.

    If you try to copy a video to iPod and a message says the video can't play on your iPod, you must convert the video.

    1.

    Select the video in the iTunes library.

    2.

    Choose Advanced > "Convert Selection for iPod."

    Note: Converting a video for iPod can take several minutes to several hours, depending on the length and content of the video.

    When you convert a video to work with iPod, the original video remains in your iTunes library. You may continue to see the message saying a video can't play on your iPod.

    For more detailed information on converting and copying videos to an iPod, go to http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=301461.
