    Hi Wdperry - welcome to the forum! :)

    Well, you are asking about multiple issues: 1) How to get your DVDs & PP presentations onto your iPad; and 2) How to show them?

    As to the PP presentations, I use Apple's Keynote - this app simulates PowerPoint and can use that file format; not as powerful or full featured as the PC desktop program but should work fine for you (unless you use some complicated PP features not available in the iPad program?).

    For DVDs, these can be loaded onto the iPad either wired (e.g. iTunes) or wireless (multiple options) - the videos must be in a format that can be used by the iPad - not sure if you have gotten to this point yet?

    Finally, as to viewing these Keynote & DVD presentations, again multiple options are available; for myself, I 'mirror' the iPad using an Apple HDMI cable adapter (shown below) - this can be attached to a HDTV w/ the appropriate HDMI input; also 'wireless' choices exist, such as AirPlay (check HERE for further information); in addition, an iPad can use a projector to view these presentations.

    Please let us know if any of these suggestions help to solve your objectives - good luck! :thumbs:
