    Can someone tell me how to save videos to the Pre?? I noticed that when I go to email someone the Pre now gives you prompts to send saved VIDEOS, pix, and songs.

    Not seeing the reason for the send video prompt yet, since we can't make videos!!! *scratches head* But it does make me feel warm and tingly inside that we soon will be!! Lol.. Someone hook me up with some info! TIA!

    You can always transfer them to your pre using the usb drive function, that's what I do anyway.

    I'm using the RealPlayer conversion set for the Pre. Works excellently, and I don't have to think about codecs, sizes, etc. It is free saving in H.263 format, if you want H.264 you have to buy a fancier version for about $40. Video on the Pre is not important enough for me to do that (If I am going to be on a long plane flight or someplace that serious portable video is desirable, I take along my Creative Zen player in my shirt pocket).

    There is a lengthy thread elsewhere with detailed instructions on settings, etc. for Handbrake that seem to have worked excellently for many people, but for me Handbrake did _NOT_ work, even following the instructions carefully.
