I bought my 7 year old daughter a mix stick in July for her birthday. Now she has to have a Mix Max! After spending some time playing with the Mix Max I am able to convert our existing DVDs into the correct format. I also purchased a 2 gig memory stick. So far I have stored 4 movies, 40 pictures, 30 songs and still have roughly 1 gig left between the internal memory and the stick. If Disney would have added a didgital camera to this thing it would be absolutely perfect. Now for how to convert files. Before you can use the Windows Media Encoder you have to rip the DVD to a readable form. I suggest using the software at
After you have ripped the DVD use the Windows Media Encoder.
Feel free to e-mail if you need help. Good luck."
Best of luck. If you find an easier way please let me know.
