    1) Do the videos look OK on your computer?

    Yes - then you Chipod doesn't play videos well try music instead.

    No - get videos that do play OK on your computer then see if they play on your Chipod.

    Note Chipods are made in China and usually are made from parts rejected from better player manufacturers. They usually have no warantee and some don't work right when brand new. You ought to feel lucky it is better than a boat anchor, if it is.

    funky subject.. these things use some bloody weird formats. I have still not managed to make working video for mine even though the films it makes itself (it's a mini dv cam as well) play just fine.. damn asf format using a proprietary microsux m2s4 codec but with the streams reversed..

    I worked for months and never got anywhere past the situation you have found.. splashes of colour with sound.

    Now please tell all.. whats the make and model ..numbers on sticker or instructions.. did it come with any "utilities" disk and if so have you tried that? Maybe my 2 years of research work with the nasty codec and it's family and friends will have the answer.
