I've loaded air video onto my ipad2 and also my lap top. Yesterday i downloaded a movie via DVD encrypter, it loaded onto my hard drive, & played on my PC. I opened air vid on the ipad and it located the hard drive folder on my PC, played the movie on the Ipad and then by transferring to itunes button it downloaded into my Itunes. I then synced it onto my Ipad and it plays fine.
Today, I repeated the same thing, my Ipad picks up the folder destination on my PC but shows nothing in it although there is a downloaded DVD. :-(
Back down to earth with a bump. Anybody esle out there faced the same thing and terefore could help me sort it?

The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-
Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2, 4.3 or 5 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.
Hi Tim, have tried all those but now the pad won't pick up the wifi router. The initial problem was it picked up my home router but then it showed the files were empty although they had downloaded dvd's within them. Worked fine yesterday, now nothing..
