    When I touch the Videos and iPod apps on my iPad, the screen for each comes up for 2 seconds, then goes straight back to the home screen. I've turned it off and on twice and reset it once. Any more suggestions?
    Thanks!

    iPad software up to date? Jailbroken?

    Try that. There seems to be some corrupt file or something causing the apps to crash.

    Naw..I have Zombies and some SouthPArks that were working before I did the last update..I dont know for how long the video or Ipod has not been working cuz I dont use either very often...Both just flash for a sec then goes back to the home screen...

    Found the solution :

    Apparently its common after the last update on some of the IPADS
