Noobie Help Needed

Just got an N8 which Nokia gave me after my N900 packed in - hope you guys can help as struggling a little bit with some things. Most I have found doing some Google searches (saving WAN passwords, converting Maps to use MPH and finding out there is NOTHING you can do about the blue bookmark shortcuts giving no info on your web page! Grrr)

I have many video clips in .avi format which the N8 does not play - the USB options for Nokia OVI Suite and Media Transfer state you can sync your media files - how do I do this?

I have installed OVI Suite and I am not not too sure how to use it - I selected folders to add (pics, music & Vid clips) but they only appear on my OVI Suite on my PC not on my phone. Do I hjave to drag them into the appropriate folder then? How do I ensure they are snych'd correctly then?

Am I missing something so obvious I will kick myself? Hope you guys can help.

I always just copy and paste or drag and drop videos and photos and files straight to mass memory or sd card from PC. I don't use Ovi Suite for this, only for updates, backups and some app downloads.

If you have the phone connected and Ovi Suite connected, then select the video, or other item you want to transfer to the phone, right click on it and one of the menu items is "copy to device".

You can use synchonisation to keep phone updated with (for example) music, but I tend to use this method as I usually want to copy some items, but not all.
