    I have the 60g Ipod video and I vaeve never been able to play video properly on them. I had the Johnny Cash video Hurt and the video played but no sound. Then i put like three movies on there and the opening scene is in a little box to the left and it plays it as audio. The proper format is mp4 right?

    60G ipod supports mp4, m4v and mov formats below 480x480.
    If your files are not mp4, you need to convert them.

    1. Soft reset, (Press + hold 'menu' & 'middle' buttons together for 6 seconds until apple logo appears)

    2. Restore; (Hook iPod up to PC, open latest apple updater sotware & click 'restore')

    It's just looks like you do this for a living. Do you know anything about games for the ipod.

    Well, there is such thing as iPodlinux which allows you to install other applications, but is very hit & miss. I would advise against using it. Apart from that, no, there are no safe games that can be installed onto the iPod. Sorry ;-)
