    I wanted to try a movie on my new Droid so I ripped Terminator 3 with the trial version of DVD Catalyst 3 and copied the mp4 file to the Droid. I found the video in the Gallery but when I try to play it a message says "Sorry, this video cannot be played".

    Anyone know how I can get it to play?

    Did you use the Droid setting in DVDCatalyst?

    Does the file play properly on your computer in Quicktime or VLC?

    I used the Droid HQ setting in DVD Catalyst.

    Quicktime can't play it either.

    then something caused the conversion to fail.
    This could be for a number of reasons.

    Please try the conversion again.

    Maybe the non HQ profile or the HQ2 profile.

    A few people have mentioned some issues with the Droid HQ profile.

    Ok, I'll try it again with the non HQ profile.

    Thanks
