    Oops ababx3 just beat me to it with good gear. But here's my contribution:
    Hi m.s.m. You're familiar with the need for iTunes on your PC and compatibility of videos, I assume the MP4 format, so that's a good start.
    Then plug in your PC to iPad using the syncing cable, open up iTunes on the PC, and select your iPad as your device (up top). From the summary choose the folder to select your videos and check which videos to sync. Then click Apply (or Sync...I can't remember which) and you should get those videos onto your iPad. Give it enough time.

    That should also work. BTW, you can call me by just ab or abs. I gave this name just to keep the username of the games which I play.:)

    Glad to ab. I thought about abs, then peered down under my iPad while lounging on my couch and thought better not be thinking about abs too much. Not much there to think about really;)

    dear mr.andrew
    as you have suggested, i connected the ipad to pc plugging in a drive (say "g"). i also opened itune in my pc.
    but the device name is now shown. but there is a line showing "device" and when clicked a screen appears
    with my ipad name. when i clicked on it, some updates are done and only "camera" icon appears.

    when i clicked "movies", i find that there are 27 videos clippings.

    i understand that in normal course, the device name should appear on the left side columns.

    i am trying many a times with many methods, but i could not sync the videos to my ipad.

    your suggesstion/help pl.

    Here is a link from Apple directly covering the syncing procedure.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1386
    That, and the helpful assistance from the post/link from abababababab above, if both are read carefully, should have been of assistance. It leaves me to wonder from where and how did you obtain those videos and in what format they are. There are apps available to convert videos to a format acceptable to the iPad.

    Hello msnarayanan further to my post above, it has come to our attention that you have now made two separate posts requesting assistance from members regarding the same syncing problem that you are experiencing. This fragments the conversation and may be confusing to members as to which post to reply to, and that is in fact what has happened.
    Please note that duplicating posts is against the rules (read the forum rules in the link below).
    Normally a duplicated post would be deleted, but as members have gone to the trouble of assisting you in both posts, we will let them stand as is.
    See the rules here >>> http://www.ipadforums.net/forum-rules-help-info/2119-forum-rules-everybody-please-read.html
    Thanks for your understanding,
    Andrew

    dear sir
    i am really very sorry that i sent duplicate post in the forum. i was confused as to
    which topic i should use for posting and hence the duplicate post. now i am very
    clear how to post and to which forum.
    once again, i apologize for having sent duplicate post.

    while on the subject, my problem remains unsolved.
