I have the season 5 of niptuck I want to add to my iPhone. It's in the library and everything but it will not go into my movies or tvshows section and will not sync onto my iPhone. Yet it's in my movies section. I don't understand how to get it onto my iPhone. It's in iTunes and converted and everything.

I use the Cucusoft DVD to IPOD converter. Its a nice program and you can even pick your bitrate to save space. Just put Blue Harvest on my new iPhone this morning, it looks great!

Cucusoft and Xilisoft are the best for PC. I have found that the best by a very large margin though is Toast Titanium if you have a mac. It is a CD/DVD burning software, but it flawlessly converts all video types and automatically syncs it to your iTunes. Just one click, wait, and drag into your phone and its there, easy as that.

If you have a Mac and need a new program to put on it, I recommend Toast because it converts, but does much more as well.

I have been using DVD Fab Gold with mobile option for awhile now. It is an excellent program that will format the movie specifically to the iPhone. It is spendy at around $50. Works flawlessly on my PC. Does not work for Mac

I didn't want to pay for a converter and found a free one. Is that why it didn't work? I mean the episodes are sitting in iTunes converted to iPhone and I just can't seem to get it to recognize it. How do you put it on? Mine is sitting in the movies section and I tried dragging onto my iPhone and it just wouldn't let me

Convert it on Handbrake and it should be fairly simple.

Maybe. Depends on if you can put it onto a DVD, and possibly rip it off of the DVD itself using Handbrake, the best video converter out there... and its free!
And no, its not a silly question at all. I'd try putting it onto a DVD and then ripping it off the DVD using Handbrake. Hope this helps.

linkage for handbrake?
I forgot the name of the converter. I'm on the phone and I'm on. 5 hour trip that I wanted to watch the season on. I'll have to look at my computer later. And yes I clicked on the video tab and it didn't even show the files to sync to iPhone. It was only in my library but wouldn't sync to iPhone

Did you click on the video tab and select which videos you want to sync?
If the files are in iTunes they are in the right format. Do what jarofclay has suggested. Open iTunes, plug in your phone and go to the Movies tab once iTunes recognizes your phone. Your movies will be listed there. All you have to do is check the ones you want then click Sync.

that's not true milehigh. I've had movies formatted that showed up on iTunes but wouldn't sync over. For both iPhone and iPod.
