Signals’ advice, as always, is excellent.
One additional piece of advice…
On occasion, Fab encounters a problem when converting directly from the dvd as the source. Try ripping the flick to your hdd first and then convert it to mpeg-4.
I’ve done a ton of Ipod conversions over the last year and a half and these “problem discs” have only numbered a few. Still, as a rule, I generally rip first and then convert. It only adds about 5-10 minutes to a process that will take 1-1 1/2 hours anyway, so it’s no big deal.
It just seems to be a smoother, glitch-free process.
Quite a few R1 users had problems converting Iron Man. Once you ripped it and changed the location of the layer break…no problem.
