Load Itunes - and import into it -> it will convert to mp4 and then you can sync to your iphone and it will be able to play.

I dont think it will directly play an avi - it must convert to its format.

You need to change the AVI to mp4, Jodix iPod Free Converter does that very easily.
If you put the AVI files into iTunes you'll be able to see them INSIDE iTunes but they wont be copied to the iPod, you need to convert them first.
