    Are you using the same PC to synchronise the iPad and transfer the DVD? If the PC you're using is synchronised to another iPad/iPhone etc then this might cause the problem.

    Avoid this by just dragging your DVD over to the iPad and don't try to do it through the sync tabs along the top of iTunes. I manually manage movies and music this way as I find it a lot less hassle.

    Hmmm....not sure. Does it come up with any message? I've had a message before saying the film will not be added as it will not play on an iPod, ie, in the wrong format. When i rejigged the film format, the copying over happened perfectly. I've never had a problem with copying to an ipad though. When you say a DVD, do you mean a digital copy of a film? Was it downloaded from itunes? When I add digital movies from my iTunes library to my iPad, I drag them from the library list in the main part of the screen, over to the iPad list on the left. As I drag it over, the iPad list changes colour and a '+' appears as it gets added. I wonder if it is the format it doesn't like.

    Huh?

    Sorry if this is off topic, but are you saying you can drag a DVD into iTunes and it will put the movie on your iPad???
