    1. Click on the Start button in Handbrake
    2. A command line/DOS window will open and start to process the video conversion
    3. Once the conversion is done, mount your DROID X on to your computer via USB
    4. Once mounted, create a folder named Video in the root folder on the DROID X
    5. Copy converted file into the Video folder

That's it! The converted video can be played on your DROID X using the Gallery app now. It should look fantastic on the DROID X's screen as long as the original source was of good quality.

A few things to keep in mind when converting video:
1. The DROID X does not like video file sizes over 2GB (the settings in Step II should help insure that the file size is kept under 2GB)
2. Your converted video will only be as good as the source video
3. If your source is over 854 x 480, you must be sure to set the width and height to a maximum of 854 x 480 as noted in Step II
