I've been using my iPad 2 for game playing and news / book reading exclusively. Someone from work sent me a MP4 video file to view to become familiar with the topic. He said it was iPad compatible. I thought - cool, I can use my iPAD for a work-related reason, and watch it in the kitchen while I'm prepping dinner. Alas, I am not smart enough to figure out how to view this video on my iPAD. ---------- Following instructions from iTunes Help on my Windows 7 PC, I tried to add the MP4 to my iPad by: 1) in iTunes, File --> Add File to Library 2) in iTunes, checked to sync 3) Sync'd with my iPad However, on my iPad, I can't find this MP4. In the iPad's iTunes application, I only see all the movies that Apple wants me to buy. But maybe my MP4 is buried there somewhere and I am just not seeing it? In the iPad's iPod application, I only see music, podcasts, etc (audio). ---------- Next thing I tried: In iTunes on my PC, I tried dragging the file on top of the device "iPad". That looked like it did move the video file to my iPAD, but I still can't find the MP4 anywhere on my iPad. ---------- Other evidence it might be on my iPad: From Windows 7 iTunes, if I click on my iPad device, I can see the MP4 there, and I can play the video But I still can't find it on my iPad once I disconnect it from my PC. Using iTunes usually makes me feel like an idiot. Another example: I spent time religiously doing something iTunes calls "sync". However, I still need to perform another action that it calls "transfer purchases", or else bad things happen. If I'm doing something called "sync", and I have sync apps checked, why wouldn't that transfer the apps I've purchased?
