Default Video Conversion problems.

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys, I love my Storm but there is one issue I have that is driving me crazy.
I cannot convert any video I have to full screen on my Storm.
It mainly has massive borders with a film strip in the centre of it in landscape view.
I have tried to convert in 16:9, 4:3, changed resoltions as nothing seems to convert to 360x480, tried fit to screen, auto options...nothing works.
I have at least 4 or 5 software programs I have used and all with the same result.
I have tried converting to mp4 mainly but did give wmv a go as well and it didnt make any difference.
Even the media manager wont convert to full screen.
I dont want to have to squint to watch my movies play on part of my screen when I have such a large screen to look at.
So what can I do or use that will get my vids to full screen?
Thanks for any help given

Not sure what software you're using to convert your video, but if your software has this option, change your zoom level from "Letterbox" to "Pan and Scan."

I know of 2 software suites that offer the Pan & Scan option in both DVD Ripping and Video Conversion jobs.

Imtoo and Xilisoft - in their various video software packages

Thanks for the reply mate.
I have just about every coversion package there is so lack of software isnt a problem.
I tried ImToo with pan and scan and the screen was bigger but I had the movie set on iphone settings when I converted it (avi movie) and the image just kept freezing up.
So I'am trying again with different settings and see how we go.
