    Hi there...I don't have an answer for you, but maybe others will when they see your post.


    Welcome to the iPadForum! This Forum offers so much information related to the iPad and its use. The IPF has many discussion topics related to: Acessories, Help, Apple News, Hacking, Gaming, Business/Education, Special Needs and Health.

    If you have not done so, please take a look at the iOS 5.0 and 5.1:

    Hi, and welcome to the forum. it's good to "see" and I hope you enjoy your visits.

    SWF files are Adobe Flash-based files and, as such, will not play on the iPad. Flash and the iPad don't play well together, as you can see if you view this sticky: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-faq/54703-flash-ipad.html

    The best advice I can give you is to use a computer to convert those files to a type the iPad CAN support, such as MP4 or something similar. Unfortunately, I don't know of any video converters that can do this - but maybe someone else will (or a quick Google search may help).
