How many batteries are you carrying in your pocket for your phone?????

And are you that bored that you want to watch movies on a cell phone? Why don't you just get an iPod or a PSP?

Windows Movie Maker should work for this.

hi,You would need the data cable. The d807 has NO memory card, so sorry that won't work.

The D807 has a microSD slot that you can use for memory and with one of the microSD cards you can buy a USB adapter that makes it easy and fast to transfer files ,and if you are wanna to listen to music by your phone ,you need search a type of audio converter software to finish your work ,here's a link, you can check it ,

Think of windows movie maker but i don't guarantee the quality as i havn't had much experience with it,

Or you can try AoA DVD Ripper. When loading DVD, click on "Import from dvd disk" and then select the ripped dvd movies on your hard drive.

If your Windows Media Player is not 9 or above, you need to install Windows Media Runtime to convert dvds to wmv..

My video iPod

Nowadays, what's the most popular personal stereo now? Most of people will remember iPod video! On my birthday, I got a video iPod from my father, how happy I am! But, another problem comes in front of me, how to rip my favorite DVD video clips into iPod compliant videos, which iPod video converter should I use? ???

Do you have the same problem with me? Have you ever been confused about which software to buy? Have you spent hours online or at the store trying to decrypt the marketing mumbo jumbo? I took three days to try many iPod converters, and then took several good iPod converters for reviewing. Hope this helps! My reviews are honest and straightforward and I don't represent any of the companies whose products I test.

What is the standard of the ideal application to rip DVD video to iPod? There are some points we should take into consideration.
1) Cost/Performance: Everybody wants to gain more with less money.

2) Video Quality: Someone often uses the video iPod to watch movie, so the output video quality should be considered seriously.

3) Audio Quality: iPod is the most popular personal stereo in the world, so the music enjoying is the basic function. Can you stand a piece of engaging music with bad conversion quality? I can't! So never choose the one that make your ears and brain suffered.

4) Speed: Convert DVD often takes time, an hour DVD movie takes around thirty minutes to convert to mpeg-4 movie, if you have multiple DVDs to be converted, a high speed converter would be your best bet.

5) Easy to use: There are still many iPod users knew little about computer, so complicated parameter settings will strain their brain, as a result, a application with simple interface and steps is the acceptable.
First , Cucusoft DVD to iPod Converter
Launch the program; you will be impressed by its simple interface. It supports the conversion of DVD to mpeg-1\2\4 \AVI There're a series of parameters for you to set, you can get more details from here.

second, ImTOO DVD to iPod Converter
Its interface is plain, but you can feel the expert. The layout is clear and in accordance with the habit of users. It supports DVD to AAC\ MP4 \M4A \MP3. For more details concerning the parameters please click here. Comparing with other iPod converters, it supports three languages (English, Chinese, and Japanese). This is good news for those asia users.

Third, PQ DVD to iPod Video Converter
Its white interface would show you the snow feeling, moreover, the icon has the Mac style, this is quite popular with users. It supports the conversion of DVD/ Tivo to iPod video. The preview Window takes half area of the interface; in addition, you can use the scroll bar to set the aspect ratio and the output size, it's convenience.

You can test them by yourself, if you are interested in them.

Uzoma Anumudu chose the newcomer when shopping for a portable digital media player last month.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
