    Do you know what file formats you are transferring across. I've had very little trouble so far with .mp4 and .avi formats which were obtained by 'ripping' my own DVDs. According to the ARNOVA site, your 8 G2 will accept .avi, .mp4, .mkv, .mov and .flv. Is it possible that your downloads are .m4v files? There's a fair deal of information at

    iTunes: Frequently asked questions about viewing and syncing videos

    about what you can and can't do, and to where!

    Also have a look at

    How to Convert iTunes Protected Movies to MP4/AVI/WMV/MPEG

    - there's a very telling paragraph in there which starts with "iTunes online store provides both latest and most popular movies download service. It is easy to access tons of excellent movies through purchasing and downloading. However, the apple DRM laden with iTunes Movie restricts you from playing your iTunes movies on any other non-Apple portable devices and media players."

    The good news is that it goes on to explain how you can make the files suitable for non-Apple gear.
