    I use Windows Live Movie Maker. It is part of the Windows Live suite.

    You don't need to install the whole suite,just the bit you need.
    Download it from a Microsoft site.

    If your movies are in one of the formats listed above there is no "conversion" needed at all. Just import them to iTunes and hot sync. You're done. If they are in some obscure format simply use Handbrake to convert them.

    Hi,
    I have movies and music on my iMac computer and can not transfer on my iPad even if I see them on iTunes when I sync. What is it I do wrong?
