I use QuickTime for videos and they play just fine. Videos must be .mov to work. However . . .if you're trying to RIP a DVD movie to play on an iPad, you might be out of luck. Movie producers have placed anti-ripping measures on released movies to prevent theft. In such instances, I usually just rent from iTunes Store or stream via Amazon Prime Movies.

The video I'm trying to upload into the iPad is not a copyrighted video. I even ran dvd decrypter on it.

Tried every preset (apple TV, iPad, iPhone) etc. Tried all the formats, .mov, .mp4 etc.

Still no go.

Why can't they just make the iPad storage show up as a drive and let me drag and drop files like other tablets do? My Playbook will even do that via wifi.


The maps debacle is mind boggling. Google actually had 1 more year to go on a contract with apple to supply maps on their iOS devices. Apple should have used that time to make sure they have a solid maps app.

Google maps is only good no because they had years to collect map data and perfect their Google Maps app. Apple is basically starting off fresh with help from TomTom.
