    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

    This is a computer program.

    You will have to do a google search and find it for your PC-than download it. It is not an Ipad app-but works well for apple devices. I have uploaded several DVD Xmas movies onto my Ipod Touch 4th gen--which has been wonderful! Once the conversion is complete-I simply opened itunes and and dragged the file to my ipod/ipad icon on the left side. Hope that helps you. There are also other ipad movie apps that have been mentioned in previous posts also-you might find it worth your while to see what others have used. Good luck, Wullie! :)

    Convert your movies on your PC using the free programme called Format Factory to avi format. And then side load to the iPad using VLC as the player. That's what i do and it is easy and works and the films don't take up too much space on the iPad.

    I just use

    Cucusoft to rip the DVD to my computer then move that one (not three or more) file to iTunes. Finally simply sync.

    Try videora. It is what i use. I don't think it ha viruses but it's free so make sure your virus scanner is up to date. I have been using it for years and never recieved a warning from AVG.

    Also I'm not sure but I think it converts DVD. I have always converted avi and used DVDripper or something to get them to avi.
