    How can I fix this?

    I want to watch movies off the free movie websites and I need adobe flash player to run so I can do some of my college assignments.

    If I cant get this resolved Im going to have to return it because then its not worth the money to me

    Umm... the iPad does not support Adobe Flash. Not sure how you missed that as it's been a HUGE topic for a very long time. Steve Jobs has even brought it up a few times.

    As for WMV files, you can always convert those to MP4. There are various converters around the Web, like the one by Jodix (it converts lots of formats to MP4... it's free and fairly speedy).

    Umm well I guess shame on me for not researching it more but sorry I dont follow steve jobs says.

    When you keep hearing the ipad can do anything it didnt cross my mind that it doesnt support adobe.

    I just want to go to letmewatchthis and youtube and watch some damn videos on my ipad

    Safari wont let me download Jodix and Ive tried doing firefox and that wont work

    YouTube works just fine. Just use the app.

    I need flash player to work more importantly or this thing is worthless to me.

    Whats the point of buying college books on the ipad but not be able to use the ipad to login online and take your tests or go to some links that you may have to go to?

    Anyone have a solution?

    And does anyone know if the Xoom will be adobe flash compatible?

    The point is that the iPad isn't a laptop. It's a tablet. It does a lot of really cool things. But... it's not a laptop, even though it has similar features.

    Honestly, I'm really sorry it's not what you expected. But, all of these issues you bring up have been known before the iPad 2 was launched.

    Luckily, you should have no problem unloading it should you decide to go with a Xoom. The iPad 2 is quite popular these days.

    Yep it sounds like a xoom is what I need. I want a light portable computer is what im looking for. Not a bigger size Iphone4 which I already have.

    I tried searching but do you know when the wifi only xoom comes out? I see the one out now is $600 and the wifi only should be cheaper. Thats a big plus to me since the ipad2 I bought was 600

    Sounds like a legitimate laptop is what you need.
