      Can someone PLEASE instruct me on how to rip my encrypted DVD's to my 30gb video Ipod!?

      Alright. Let me be first state 2 main things. First, i am a total newbie to iPods, secondly, let me appologize for how much of a newbie i am and if this topic has already been coverded in detail, which im sure it has. but i am VERY much limitited on time. I am deploying for iraq in 48 hours, and im trying to do about 15 things at once. so please, if you could lend me your help, it would be greatly appreciated.
      my problem is 3 parts. but here is the back round. im going to iraq, all ready stated. i have a lot of music and dvds i would like to bring with me for my down time. cool. so i just bought an 80G ipod video. sweet. but i have thus far had 3 main problems with my ipod.
      first off, when itunes took all my music out of my media player on my computer, it didnt take all of them. it left at least 20 songs that are just individual songs that i downloaded. hmm. cant figure out how to get them from there to itunes to my ipod. thats one.
      2 is i have several videos on my computer that i have made myself, with my digital camra. things like me driving, medical videos, etc, etc, just simple videos. now these were taking from my videos on my computer and moved into itunes when i loaded it up, but itunes is telling me that they arnt in the right format for my ipod, though they are in quicktime format, and they play fine in itunes. WTF???
      lastly, how do i go about taking my probably 30 or more DVDs from there pretty little DVD-ness and actually rip them onto my computer to itunes to my ipod. i got PodMaxx07 to do this, but its not doing it. at all. i have a lot of DVDs that i want to have on there that i dont want to bring to iraq. sooooo yea. i tried addign them to my computer and everything, but nothing, and i mean nothing worked. are there some simple programs i can download to do this. podmaxx is throwing some error when it tries to do it, i am trying to down load an update for podmaxx at this time to see if that works. dunno though.
      im so clueless here guys. i have a couple computer savy people here, but they arnt much help because they dont know ipods. im sorry for such a long horrible drawn out post. and you dont even have to get back to me here. honestly it would be better if you emailed me directly at Cas420821-AT-yahoo.com or you can IM me on AIM at Sonicbullit21. im going to be in and out of my room most of the day packing various things and running to the PX as i need too. but please, if you have anything that could help me, i would SO appreciate it.
      thanks in advance.

      ....and even showing up in my iTunes then why the hell won't it "work" on my brand friggen new 80G iPod that i bought yesterday??? i cannot for the life of me figure this out.
      i have tried using Videroa AND Podmaxx07 to convert my movies that I recorded myself with MY digital camra then loaded to MY computer into the iPod format, but nothing is working. All of them show up on iTunes, but when they go to load up, itunes tells me that the format that they are played in is not supported by my iPod. So nice of apple to be so specific. what the hell do i need to do. I thought they were already in Mpeg4 format, yet they still wont work and they dont want to be converted. Podmaxx just isnt working and Videroa is telling me something about my video cannoot format due to bitrate, framerate or resolution settings. WTF?
      guys i hate to be a pain in the ass here, but im leaving to go to Iraq in less than 18 hours, i would like to get this figured out so i can load my DVDs and videos onto my iPod on the way over there and just know how to do it. Can someone who knows this stuff please contact me and help me out. it would be SO greatly appreciated. thanks

      I hope he figured this out before he left.
      If anyone else has this problem, this forum usually has the answers.

      Go to Movies under Library. Right click the movie that's not transferring and choose, "Convert Selection for iPod". Not sure why it won't transfer as I had the exact same problem...

      I'm talking beyond bad battery repair. Mine smoked its mainboard. I want a new one to replace it with, however I'm strapped for cash at the moment, plus I don't care about the condition (mine is scratched to hell), and the hard drive has a LOT of music on it that I don't have backed up anywhere.
      I've worked on ipods in the past, is there anything I should know about the current (well 5, not 5.5) gen mainboards before I get one online?

      Just make sure you get the mainboard from the same GB model as you did before. I know that it's possible to get a different one and get it to work on the earlier models, but the newer (gen 5+) are more tricky or impossible to do from what i've heard.

      Restore it and then try reloading your music onto it.
      Look online for methods of resetting it if it is locked up.

      I just got the corrupt ipod notice too. My pod was getting stiction (drive reader arm sticking...therefore songs skipping and pod freezing)really bad for about 6 months. Then just the other day I plugged it in to update and I got the corrupt notice...so warily I restored it and plugged it back in...got the same notice. Now I'm stuck with an empty ipod that won't update I've tried everything I could find and nothing worked...lame!
      Don't like something? Report it. We can't be everywhere at all times.

      Replacing my mainboard in my 5.5gen ipod. Will the hard drive need to be reformatted once I put the unit together?

      It shouldn't but it's hard to say. At the very least you'll probably have to do a restore, but you might get lucky. It's hit or miss.

      I'm trying to put songs onto my dads ipod and it won't let me sync more than 54 songs in total onto the ipod.
      His computer is a new dell duel core running vista. The itunes is the latest version and this is a 5.5 video ipod, 30 gig.
      Any idea what's up? I can't manually import them either. I have a mac and when I drag 120 songs into my ipod, 120 songs go into my ipod. If I drag 120 songs onto his on his pc, 54 go onto his ipod.
      they are all acc format songs. I'm lost. I tried resetting the ipod to the factory settings and it didn't help.

      The only thing I can think of is if they are copy protected tracks that have exceded the 5 computer/ipod limit...

      nope. But I got them onto the ipod. They would only load by making a playlist on itunes and automatically syncing the playlist. I can't get more than 54 songs onto the "music" part of the ipod.

      Check your 55th song, there may be an error on it?

      Get Winamp and the Ipod PC plugin for Winamp.
      iTunes on the PC is pretty buggy at times, even I had my own issues that requires reinstalling multiple times to fix it.

      Uhh..this is *WIERD*
      Long ago, I bought Ben Harpers "Picture in a Frame" from "Both Sides of the Gun". I went back through the iTunes story account history and verified it was one of the two I bought off of that album.
      Fast forward to today. I go to play the song on my iPod (it says "Picture in a Frame"), and it's not even remotely the same song. I click on the arrow link, which takes me to the iTunes store, and I'm taken to "Engraved Invitation" from the same album!
      Double checked again, and I never bought Engraved Invitation! I know this, not only because it's not in my account history, but because I had never heard it before!
      I'd be happy for the free music, but I lost a good song

      My iPod is formatted for Macintosh. I lost the use of the Mac that had all my playlists on it. Is there PC software I can obtain that will let me upload the contents of my iPod to a WinDoze machine so I can reformat the iPod drive to WinDoze format and then push everything back down?
