    OK, another dumb question. I copied a couple of DVD's to my computer, copied them into Itunes, synced them to the Ipad, but how do I play them? Is there an app for this obviously there is or several)? Would someone give me a hint. Thanks

    Go to your movie icon on the home screen and they should be there to watch.

    I don't have a movie icon. That is what is confusing me. Maybe it got removed in sync or maybe it was never there(doubtful).

    The icon is videos and it works like a charm. I downloaded an old movie from iTunes to watch and found it easy to watch, but a little difficult to FF and Rew.

    Thanks, It looks like my problem was that the movies did not actually sync. Doing that now. Thanks again.

    Videos icon. Yes. That should do it. Another option is the wonderful free app Airvideo. It does live video streaming from your computer to Ipad. Enjoy!.

    My bad guys, I meant to say videos icon. By the way, with air video app, if the movie has drm, it will not play. It will show a black screen.

    If you copy DVDs to the Mac/PC then rip it first and then copy the m4v file into iTunes.
    Rightclick on the movie and in the tab information, you can edit cover, details etc.

    What program did you use to rip it first. I use Mac the Ripper, but it doesn't give a m4v file.
