    When I click on "Watch the Latest Episode", I get this popup: "Unable to retreive required files for playback. Please try again in a few minutes. Error code 300-2". I have a 3G model. New Ipad user, please help!

    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!!

    OK - someone else has had this exact same problem today - I will try to find their post!! If no one else gets back to you (iPad Forum members are the repositories of all iPad information!) then I'll have something soon - it's in the back of my mind, but I just can't recall....must get a life....

    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.

    Apple - Support - Manuals

    It’s free too.

    Were you on 3G or WiFi? Many of the streaming apps will only allow WiFi. Even the ones that allow 3G often choke on streaming.

    I have the ABC app, and I'm running 3G. I'm surprised to hear it won't stream with 3G! How else will I get streaming programs, movie downloads, etc.?

    Try it with WiFi and see if it works.

    abc app

    I just downloaded the abc app and it said it was installed, but I can't find it on my iPad. Where will the app appear? How do I access the tv show I want to watch once I find the app?

    ABC player app not working

    I click on the video, it acts like it's going to play and loads a half screen of video but then flickers and goes back to the video selection screen. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times. I even contacted support 6 times with no response. Any else have this problem and find a solution?

    I see that this is an older post, but I am having the same issue. Even when I am at home and turn off my 3G and connect to my wireless, I am getting the same error message. But I am able to connect to ABC.com on my laptop and stream shows.

    Any ideas?
