Part 1. How to transfer iPod recorded video to computer on windows and Mac
Step1. In order to transfer the video computer, you have to enable iPod disk use at first. Plug in your iPod Nano to computer, run iTunes and select the iPod in the device list, go to the Summary tab. Then you will see the “Enable disk use”, check it and click the Apply button. It’s the same for Mac user to enable iPod disk use.
Step2. Because iTunes prevent you copying the non-purchased file from iPod to computer, you need an iPod transfer software to copy the iPod video, I have tried many iPod transfers, and this one works best for the iPod Nano recorded video. I have scanned it with Norton Virus Protector, it’s safe without any virus and spyware. Download and install the iPod Transfer, connect your iPod to computer. Then run the iPod Transfer, it will search the iPod automatically;
Step3. Choose the recorded video that you want to transfer, and click “Export” to begin the transfer; it can help you copy the recorded video to computer or iTunes, that’s all. You can also use it to transfer music and photos from iPod to computer, it's really use when your computer crashed and you lost all the files.
If you are Mac user, this iPod transfer also has Mac version, the operation is the same, enable the iPod disk use at first, then choose the recorded videos and export them to your Mac.
Once you transfer the video from iPod to computer successfully. You may want to add them into Windows Movie Maker for further editing or burn it to DVD. Because the iPod recorded video is H.264 video, and Windows Movie Maker doesn’t support that video format. You have to convert it to WMV video at first, and then you can use Windows Movie Maker to edit wmv video. I have tried many video converters, and this video converter works best for the iPod recorded video.
Download and install the video converter, then click “Open File” to import your iPod recorded video, click the profile to choose the “WMV- Windows Media Video (.wmv)”, and then click “Convert”, it will take a few minutes to convert the video. And the converted video will save in C:Documents and SettingsAdministratorMy DocumentsCucusoftConverterOutput
After that, you drag the converted video into Windows Movie Maker for editing or burning.
As said above, the iPod recorded video is H.264 video, and YouTube, MySpace, Facebook both support AVI and MPEG video. If you want to upload the recorded video to YouTube, Myspace or Facebook. You have to convert the video to the right format at first. The video converter recommend above in the Part 3 also do a great job for that. The operation steps are the same, I’m not repeat here. Just select the “AVI – Audio Video Interleaved (.avi)” as output video and wait for the conversion, then you can upload the video. Please remember that are file size and time limitations for the YouTube uploaded video.
