    A friend gave me two movies in .avi format, I copied them to my SD card and watch them perfectly :)

    I use dvd fab, it allows me to rip dvds directly to mobile format (avi). Also breaks copy protection and allows you to remove all those pesky fbi warnings. Its also reasonably priced.

    Try this link to a thread in another forum...
    Android and videos, how to get started | Android Central

    I have not personally used Double Twist, but have used HandBrake, and it transcoded Transormers over so I can watch it on my phone... Video and audio sinc perfectly...

    Hope this helps...

    You can also download use DVDcatalyst Free for whatever phone you have, convert the video, copy it to the phone, then open it under files

    Launch market, hit search, type vplayer, install, launch, browse to movie.avi/mkv/mp4..etc..etc

    If you don't see vplayer in the market it is likely your device does not support the needed neon CPU instruction.

    There is no need to transcode the movie, vplayer handles most formats.

    OK, So here is the process I use to get playable movies on my phone (Droid X).

    I create an "archival" backup of my DVD on my PC. I happen to use DVD Decrypter v3.5.4.0

    This will create a folder with multiple VOB, BUP and IFO files. These files are not playable on your phone.

    Next I use Handbrake to convert these files to an m4v file. I connect my phone to my PC via USB, and copy the file to a folder called Movies. This file is playable by your stock video player on your phone. No need to install additional software, unless you would like to.

    That's it... no more to it. It is really not exceedingly complicated, you just need the correct parts...

    I am not saying anything anyone else has told you is incorrect, this is just the way I do it.

    Hope this helps...

    a new wrinkle

    Ok, how about this.

    Recently purchased a blu-ray dvd that has a digital copy. (all legal-like)
    The digital copy requires either iTunes (which for various reasons, I refuse to have on my computer) or synch with Windows Media Player.

    WMP, of course, will not load it to my Droid X because it doesn't think that it handles DRM correctly.

    Any suggestions?

    Nevermind, I am a moron.

    Turns out it works much better when you set the usb mode to "windows sync"

    Duh.
