Default Pulling A Movie Out Of Ipod: Can It Be Done?

Guys

I usually insert stuff manually on my ipod manually as I use different computers to insert movies and music. There is a movie on my ipod which I'd like to pull out. Unfortunately i converted the movie and discarded the file....would it be possible to pull this movie out of the ipod and convert it back to full dvd?

I tried looking on the folder inside the ipod but all i see is the my music folder, notes, calenders etc without anything on movies and videos

Please let me know

you are usually downgrading quality when you encode for an ipod and reduce the size of the video

Yes Phillip, it would be useless unless you transfer the Mpg4s back to your PC as is, and only to put back onto your iPod to view later on.

It will look like crappe if you were to convert it back to DVD since the bitrate has already been reduced down. Increasing the bitrate back up 'will not' increase quality.
