Problem getting files to go on an iPod via iTunes

    So I've recently been trying to get some of my Blu-rays on my iPod, so I've downloaded a few programs to try and get it to work.

    I got MakeMKV to get the files into MKVs, then I got Handbrake to convert them to MP4s. I can get them to play in my iTunes, but when I try to drag them from my iTunes to my iPod, I get a message that says "was not copied to the iPod because it cannot be played on this iPod"

    Its an iPod video, so I'm pretty sure it should be able to play videos. The dimensions for the video are 854 x 352 (the other films I bought via iTunes were the exact same dimensions, so I figured that when I converted it to an MP4 that these were the dimensions I was supposed to use).

    Can anyone give me any ideas on what I might be doing wrong?
