    Hey guys. I'm in a bit of a pickle here.

    I'm trying to get some videos onto my 30GB iPod video.

    At the moment I have 6 on there but iTunes won't let me add anymore into my video library on there. :confused: It was working a few days ago when I got it but then it just randomly stopped working for no reason what so ever. :(

    I've been doing it exactly the same way that I was doing it before and it's still not working.

    Anything you can suggest?

    Cheers for any help. :)

    How is it not letting you add videos? Does it come up with an error message or anything?

    Have you tried simply adding the files to your library (File -> Add file to library, or Ctrl+O), then dragging the videos across to your iPod in the left-hand sidebar? Providing the videos are in the correct format, you should have no problems transferring them via that method :)

    They just don't show up in iTunes.

    Sometimes when I pulg the iPod in I get a message saying:

    "The iPod "Lees iPod" cannot be updated. The disk could not be read from or written to."
    Yet when I add more music to my iTunes library and plug my iPod in it updates just fine? :confused:

    Do I have a ****** iPod? :(

    You might want to take a look at this support article related to the "disk could not be read from or written to" error message :)

    Cheers for that. I'll try what it says now. :)

    I've updated the iPod too, from version 1.0 to 1.1. Now I can actually get photos on there which is promising. :D

    Still having the video problem though. :(

    Bit of a bump here.

    Still can't get the videos to work. Is there any other software that I can use to put the videos on?

    That's probably my last resort now, I think. :(

    I got a new 30GB ipod video as a thank you off my employer and sold my old ipod. TBH I have had this problem a few times now, and others. Totally sick of this ipod and am considering swapping it for something else now. I have heard of a few others with problems with the latest ipods as well.

    It's all sorted now. For some reason iTunes didn't want to take the 2 videos I was trying to put on it. :confused:

    Topic can be closed now please. :)

    Who do you work for? Sounds good if they give you pressies. :p

    I recommend ignoring iTunes for the video aspect, use Videora to convert, then put them into iTunes.
