i realize this post may seem really dumb.... but i need some clarification. 1.) i was told by a friend that the new ipods, nano + video, are not mp3 players and only play apple format music from itunes. is this correct? 2.) is it hard to convert .avi videos into the two apple acceptable .mpeg-4 and .h-something format? will i-tunes do this or do i have to buy another software? 3.) which do you prefer, black or white? 4.) video or nano? thanks!!!!
