    Hello everyone, first post here. We are getting ready for a big trip and I tried to put some of the movies our son watches onto the iPad. They ripped just fine and are in iTunes. But when I synch they show up blank on the iPad. It's just a white box with the movie title that won't play. Any ideas how I can fix this??

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    This happens to me sometimes. Resyncing with itunes has worked for me, hopefully that will work for you if you haven't tried it already.

    I tried that :) and it's not just the new movies I ripped, the ones that I had on there before and worked perfect I took off to make space, well I just tried them too and they r doing the same thing. This is an iPad 1 if that helps at all.
