Videos show up in itunes but not ipod anymore

Ive had my ipod for almost a year now, everything worked great, all the vids worked on ipod fine with no problems. Then a couple of weeks ago i went to my movies section on my ipod and there were no videos there. When i went into itunes though, my videos were still showing up and working there. So today i updated itunes to the newest version and got the firmware update 1.2, thinking that might help, but it did nothing. Now in itunes when i go to the music section under my ipod, all of my videos are in there and i can't move them into the movies section. Anybody have annyyy idea how to fix this? Ive searched around but haven't found anything that helped.

Are these files you're referring to music videos or movies?

In iTunes 7, music videos will be organized in the music section alongside your audio tracks. Movies and TV Shows get their own section.

Unless the content has been purchased from the iTunes Store, you can change the video kind by selecting the track in iTunes and going to File->Get Info->Video and selecting the appropriate kind from the drop-down menu.

In terms of why they're not syncing to your iPod, this might be based on your sync preferences. In iTunes 7, if they are music videos, you need to ensure that the "Include Music Videos" checkbox is on under the iPod's "Music" tab (in iTunes, select the iPod from the left-hand side and select the "Music" tab).

For Movies or TV Shows, these are set separately from the appropriate tabs in the iPod preferences. You'll want to watch out for these two that you're not only syncing "UNWATCHED" Movies or TV Shows, however, as they will not be transferred to your iPod (in fact they will be taken off) if you have watched them already.

Further, if these are videos purchased from the iTunes Store, you may want to ensure that your computer is properly authorized for your iTunes Store account by selecting Store->Authorize Computer and entering your iTunes Store userid and password.
