    Hi,
    When i connect my iPad to my computer to download the TV shows I like, it gives a message that there is no room left. The part of the bar that indicates video in the lower bar takes up more that 75%.
    I have very little media on it as, however, I have been watching TV shows from the cloud lately and not the ones I normally download.
    I did 2 soft restarts, holding my fingers on the home button and on the on/off button.
    Still looks exactly the same.
    Any help out there is appreciated.

    Hello - if you held both the ON-OFF & HOME buttons simultaneously, then that is call a 'Reset' - did you wait until the Apple logo appeared followed by releasing both buttons together allowing the device to reboot?

    What is the storage capacity of your iPad and how much is available - check in Settings -> General -> About? When plugged into your computer w/ iTunes open, can you do a screen capture and post back to this thread (below is my iPad which has 64 GB storage - as you can see, I do Audio and not Video on the device) of your storage bar graph (mine is shown below)? Dave :)

    Hi again - sorry about the 'Reset' not helping - sometimes the 'capacity' reporting will re-adjust. Your iPad has plenty of capacity @ 64 GB (same as my iPad Air 2).

    As to a 'screen capture' (SC) depends on whether you are referring to the iPad (iOS), a Mac (OS X), or Windows - I no longer do windows ;) - SC on the iPad is done by pressing the ON-OFF & HOME buttons 'quickly' - you should hear a camera sound and the image is saved to your Photo App where you can do the desired manipulations.

    If you are talking about a Mac (I usually use my MBPro w/ Yosemite 10.10.5) - SCs can be done using a combination of keys, e.g. CMD-SHIFT-3 will capture the entire screen or CMD-SHIFT-4 will allow you to select a portion of the screen (I use this method often on a daily basis) - then Preview (again on OS X) can be used to crop and re-size your captured images - let us know if that is what you want to know? By the way, the storage image I showed in my previous post was from my laptop using CMD-SHIFT-4 followed by some editing. Dave :)

    Sorry. Could not figure out how to do a screen shot of my Windows computer with the iPad connected. Is there any other way to eliminate the very long line of "Video" when it does not match the connection. I have very little space available but only about 10 TV shows on the iPad.
    Any help appreciated.

    Restore your iPad using iTunes. This should rectify the problem with your storage space. It's possible to restore from a backup after restoring, so make sure there's a most recent one, iTunes or iCloud - no matter which one you prefer.
    If this doesn't help, you might need to erase your iPad and set it up as new.

    Hi again - sorry, my last experience w/ Windows was Vista on a laptop & XP on a desktop - but for many years on PCs, my wife and I used Snagit to do 'screen captures' - I'm sure there are other options and likely some built into current Window versions.

    Now, you've told us that your iPad has 64 GB capacity, but back in my Post #2, I asked 'how much' storage was left on your iPad? And 'how much' is your 'video' occupying? Can you delete 'old TV shows' and does that recovery any storage for you? Dave :)

    @ RAM - I was hoping to avoid J.A.'s suggestion which would have been my next recommendation; if none of my ideas help, then you need to 'bite the bullet' and do something more drastic - sorry. Dave :)

    Hello Vuut - first, welcome to the forum! :) Second, you have hijacked another's thread and likely will not receive the attention you deserve - please start a new thread of your own in an appropriate forum - Dave
