i have converted the office episodes into .mp4 files using the cucusoft software. and when i add it to itunes i can play it but when i try to sync it says that the iphone is unable to play this file. any ideas?

I have found itunes not liking long file names which seem to be the common on some downloaded files; simply rename them and you should be good to go assuming the video size is correct. Also, I am new to iTunes so this could all be wrong speculation.

I use Cucusoft and it works well, but lags on anything more than 2 hours long. Is this only me?

Great tutorial - thanks! I actually just resort to purchasing movies from the app store (if it's under 9.99) if I thought it was really great.

It's quite long since i have been looking to convert DVD to iPhone, and finally i could find a reliable DVD to iPhone converter software that did it for me, i am using Windows. Now, i have managed converting the videos to iPhone and need to transfer the same, so can this be done with the utility itself or i need to opt for some other way out. Thanks for any advice of yours and yes thanks for the conversion guidelines.
