    Why why why? I am trying to get the movies that are in my iTunes library to my iPad 2 and it's driving me mad!!! It is showing in my summary that there is 5 gb of video but every time I look on the iPad they are not there?? please please someone help, tell me where I'm going wrong (although I'm sure I'm doing it right?) so if anyone can help I would be very grateful.

    Many Thanks

    Are you sure iTunes video tab has the synch button ticked ? I also have several gigs of videos and they synch OK.

    I assume you mean the little box that says sync films? If so then yes :)

    Hi ballbagracer...where are you looking on your ipad? Forgive me if you have already checked there, but have you check for the movie under the Video app on your ipad?

    Yes skimonkey
    I have been looking in the video app, where I have a couple of movies already.
    I have tried to drag and drop, again no joy. They are mpeg movies.

    Cheers

    Thanks again. I've just looked and they are mp4 mpeg-4. I do have gplayer app that I have used for some other stuff, but just want to be able to sync movies normally.
    I'm sure I have sync'd before, that's how I got the other movies on.

    Thanks again, a confused ballbag :)

    Wow. I never knew you could convert movies to iPad format direct in iTues as mentioned in the second of the above thread. Never stop learning.

    To be clear, you would need conversion software on your pc such as hand brake to convert prior to syncing in iTunes to iPad.
