    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    I saw your question about loading and playing movies from your Sony camera. I have one too and there's no problem. However, unless you have a very recent Sony camera that supports the SD card format too, you're probably stuck with dealing with the proprietary Memory Stick format cards. So, you either need a card reader or a PC that reads Memory Sticks (like my Sony Vaio). If you have a card reader then you can either transfer the movie to your PC or Mac and then onwards to the iPad or, if you have the optional iPad camera connection kit, it will read the movie directly from the card reader.

    I found a little difficulty transferring the files from my PC to the iPad so I used GoodReader.

    There is a program that most all iPad users have called GoodReader. It's the 'Swiss Army Knife' for the iPad and it can store files all together and in folders - or however you want them - and can transfer files to and from your PC using either WiFi or USB without the need for iTunes. It's built in web-browser can download files too, something that Safari doesn't offer - except for PDF format. From within GoodReader you can open those files in any app that supports that type of file. Having said that, though, when a compatible app does open that file it makes a local copy that it works on, so the original copy in GoodReader is left untouched. If you want to store the modified file in GoodReader you have to transfer it back there by some means.

    GoodReader can also attach several files to an email and then send them using the iPad's native Mail app - something you can't do from within Mail itself. It also gives you the opportunity to annotate PDF files and save the resulting file so that it can be read on a PC or Mac.

    One GoodReader has got your video files onto the iPad you can open them and play them from any app that supports that file format. I've not yet found a way to get them to play using the iPad's native Videos app, so I use oPlayer, which handles most video formats without a problem. If you still have a problem after reading all this waffle of mine, don't hesitate to get back to us.
    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.
