    I use my iPad for trade shows and demos. I used to use my laptop and may have to go back to it. I have several product DVDs that I need to get from my PC to my iPad but can't find a way to do it. I bought two expensive converters but they didn't work properly when viewing them on my iPad.
    Can someone please help me?

    It's all about having the right converters and using them correctly. Which ones did you buy and what types of files are you trying to view on your iPad? This should be very doable.

    Well, I'm not sure. Not even sure how to find out. I just have some product DVDs that I need on my iPad. And I'm using a pc.

    Try Handbrake to encode the files for your iPad. There is a specific iPad preset, should make the job easy.

    Since you have your converters probably all you need is to customized the resolution of your output file. The Ipad 3 has a maximum resolution of 2048x1536. Setting it to this value will result to a large file. Other resolution that you can try are 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080P profile), 1280x720 (HD 720P profile), and 1024x768. Choose the output format MP4.
