    If you go to your documents on your pc-find the movie and point your mouse to that file. There you will see the format, or extension that Chays is asking for. Usually the extensions are: .avi, .mov, etc.

    I have used handbrake app for iPad when I transferred a DVD from my pc to my iPad. It took about 45 minutes to convert, but it was very nice! Hope that helps!

    Okay, let's try this...
    Go to app store and download a free app called GPlayer lite.
    Plug your iPad into the comp, open iTunes and under your iPad, under apps, there should be a file sharing block. Copy the video into here and see if it plays in that app, once you have synced and disconnected...Let me know

    Regards,

    This is a computer program.
