The videos are not in the proper format. Whenever videos don't transfer then there is a problem with the video.

yep this happened to me to so I gave up ;;

I think they have to be a certain size and stuff maybe? the one I can't seem to get into iTunes is a bit bigger than the other one that actually went in, but I haven't converted it again to test this out myself..

and some seem to go into iTunes, but appear black in my iPod ..I'm not sure why this happens either and again I gave up.

another one would go into iTunes and just not go onto my iPod with this problem I used iTunes to convert it and it worked *shrug*

it's a big pita ^_^;;

kyel and babypp2, I assume you are both having the same issue? You probably would have been better off starting a new topic rather than resurrecting a 5 year old thread covering a different issue with video not purchased from iTunes.

Is your new touch synced or logged into the iTunes account the movie was originally bought with?
