Hi all, first post on these forums so hope i'm in the right place!

Im off on holiday in a couple of hours and I downloaded a couple of lectures off of iTunes U to keep me entertained on the journey, however they aren't syncing to my iPhone (running 3.0, obviously!)...When i connect my iPhone to iTunes and navigate to the video tab, half of my movies appear normally for me to tick and have them sync to my phone, however some (including the ones I just downloaded) appear grayed out and even when I tick them they don't sync to my phone...

Any quick help would be much appreciated,

Thanks!

When they are greyed out that means they aren't in the right format (MPEG-4) for iPods/iPhones. I've converted some videos from .avi to to "Apple TV" format and they will play in iTunes and on Apple TV, but they are greyed out and won't sync to my phone.

They'll still work, you just need to convert them and then add them back in. Do you have an iPhone video converter program/app?
