    Please help a newbie...

    I searched the tutorials & can't seem to find an answer to my question. Forgive me if it is there & I missed it.
    I am converting via Nero Recode 2, which seemed to work. When I watch the new video in iTunes on my computer, it seems fine.
    But when I watch it on the Touch, it's all pixelated.

    What am I doing wrong?!
    Thanks so, so much for your patience & help in assisting this newbie with what I'm sure is an obvious problem with an easy fix...
    (Just to clarify, other vids work fine- one downloaded from iTunes, another from a different conversion program.)

    THANKS AGAIN!

    Try rebooting your iPod. Sometimes that actually works.

    Thanks for the input...
    Would rebooting help if only some videos are pixelated & others are fine?
    I just assumed I was converting somehow wrong or using the wrong settings when I converted.

    Forgive a further stupid question, but by rebooting do you mean to restore it?
    How exactly do I do that?
    Will I lose all my music, photos, playlists, etc.?

    THANKS again- a whole bunch-
    Robt

    no reboot lik restart it, hold down the sleep button, then when off, hold it down untill apple logo shows, hten try to watch a vid, if that doesnt work, repeat, if that doesnt work, reapeat a 3rd time or restore, if restoring doesnt work 'wich it should' take it to apple

    Thanks, but I have restarted a buncha' times, it doesn't help.
    (Should I try to restore? How do I do that & will I LOSE all my content (songs, movies, playlists, etc.)?)
    As I said, the other videos are fine, but the one I've converted using Nero REcode2 are pixellated. So I think it may be a mistake I'm making whilst converting.
    Is there something wrong with my settings? They play fine elsewhere, just blocky on the Touch.
    Thanks again...
