    I converted using DVD Catalyst, but can't figure out how to get them to the phone. I hooked up the usb cable but it does not show up under my computer?

    On home screen of the Droid at the very top you'll see the icon for USB mode.
    Drag down from that icon and you will see the menu item USB Connected.
    Click on it and select mount.

    I made a media folder on my card. Within there I have video, movies, clips, pics, music.

    Just drop your movies into any folder you want, then you can play them from your phone as long as they are in the right format.

    Like Christim said. For movies, it doesn't matter where they are located, as long as they are in the right format they will appear in Gallery, the default multimedia player on Android.

    Filetypes that are accepted as video are MP4. With Clone DVD Mobile, you should use settings similar to the iPod/iPhone profiles.

    If you need a few files to make sure you are doing it correctly, you can download some droid-optimized movie trailers from this thread. Download one (or more) of the zip-files, extract the MP4 from the archive and copy it to your phone.

    If you want to keep the AVI format, give this app a try:

    RockPlayer | Google ????

    If you can't locate files, download Astro from the market.

    For AVI, you can use "RockPlayer"

    I do recommend converting them to (H264) MP4 format, because that format is supported by the hardware (a dedicated chip) of your phone which saves on battery-life.

    I've found rockplayer doesn't work with all of the listed formats yet either. wmv files tend to play back without sound and in v e r y s l o w motion. It's still in beta.
