    Hi can someone help me pleas? In have transferred some videos I have converted to iPad format onto my iPad and they are in the videos section. I tap on them to start playing them and they play then about halfway in they stop playing and go back to the videos folder. Why is this happening and what can I do to stop it?
    Thanks

    The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-

    Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 or 4.3 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
    Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.

    OK - sorry that didn't work. Does this happen for absolutely every video you've converted or are there some (any) that play OK? Do you have any videos that you've downloaded from the iTunes store and do they play OK? (If you don't have any videos from the iTunes store, it might be worth downloading a free video or free preview to see if the problem still persists.)

    Thanks. I tried another movie I had converted and it works. It's only the one particular show, numerous single episodes, that stops halfway through. Does this suggest something wrong with the files?

    Yes - it certainly sounds as though that might be the case. Is it possible to convert one episode again and see if the problem persists? I can't think what could cause this, though, but it would be useful to see if, when you convert an episode again, it stops playing at exactly the same point as it did before.
