    Question Transfer movie to iPad?

    I used DVDFab to rip and convert a movie to a .m4v, added it to iTunes, but when I sync my iPad, the movie doesn't go over to the pad.....

    Whateber=whatever. Also, I have moved videos to ipad by opening the computer folder window in a smaller size over itunes and dragging the file from that folder to the videos folder in ipad.

    Try converting the files to .mp4. To get itunes to see the files automatically, save them to the itnues watch folder. I forget where it is but there definitely is one.
