I have an ipod which runs video. The bonus is as it is so small I always have kid entertainment in case we get stuck in a queue or whatever. Also battery power is greater.

The dvds are good if you are spending an awful long time in the car though as the kids are looking up, whereas I think that they are more likley to be carsick if they look down.

ok next question. how do i get my dvds onto my ipod?

storminanecup - that looks fantastic but out of budget.

We have a double dvd player for the car, two screens. They can play two different dvds or just one, depending on how compatible the children are feeling wink

Wouldn't be without them at this stage for long journeys

oh cod what would xenia say! emancipate yourself and load up some dvds (and then tell me how to do it)

gin - we only have dd so splits screen would be overkill!

Storminacup, how do you record DVD's onto your archos. I've got the 605 and don't know how to do it.
