    I need an app that will convert media files into iPad format. 90% of the files that I try to copy to iPad says that they are not supported. I am tired of this... I have mp3 audio files and they are not supported according to my iPad (even thou apple website says that they are). I need an app that will automatically convert everything into iPad playable format. Any suggestions??

    The VLC app is what you need and it is free and it works.

    I didn't have much luck with VLC, but I can recommend AirVideo. You can live convert and stream from your PC, and if you like it'll convert and add them to your iTunes.

    not saying it works for everything but VLC's been great for me, when people send me songs through emails it usually works to play them

    Just buy the Air Video app and then download the Air Video server. You can convert the videos on the fly and watch them, or convert them and copy them to your iPad for later viewing, it's an excellent program and ridiculously easy to use.

    Got a mac? Use "Miro Video Converter" then just play - they automatically go to iTunes - unless you already changed your defaults.
