Going on vacation I had spent many days downloading movies with the help of Handbrake so I could watch them on my fifth generation iPOD while on my trip.

The movies are on iTunes but not on the iPod. What did I do wrong?

After you put them in iTunes, did you connect your iPod and copy them to your iPod from iTunes? Do they show up in iTunes as Movies in the Movie category?

2) How did you RIP them in handbrake? They need to be ripped as "iPod High-Rez" (for viewing on TV) or "iPod Low-Rez" (for viewing on iPod only).

Actually the Handbrake presets have been updated to be much more clear and produce smaller files and better quality.

Click on the little action wheel at the bottom of the preset window and choose "Update Built-in Presets" (this will not disturb any custom ones you've made) and your presets will be updated to the latest and greatest ones in the Handbrake 0.9.3.

For example, the original Apple TV preset didn't bring over the 5.1 surround sound properly, so I made my own. Now it does, so I can use theirs which produces a smaller file too.

You can either use the one called iPod for a 320x240 movie or Universal for a 640x480 movie. Your choice depending on what else you might watch it on. If it's an iPhone or iPod touch, of course use those settings.

Yes to Donna
Yes to Bibo except I choose to Preset iPod Low-Rez
My movies showed up in iTunes although greyed-out when I updated to the iPod. They would not mount to the iPod.
Terry--I am using Handbrake 0.9.1 because I have a Power PC not Intel which I had forgotten to mention but I still clicked on the wheel.
The only mistake that I can see is I hadn't clicked on Low-Rez iPod which the average bitrate changed to 700 instead of 1500, if that makes a difference.

I am copying another movie now. This movie is copying in 6 hours instead of 12 hours.
