    Hi all,

    I recently downloaded Star Trek and Inception from iTunes for free as I got a free code with the blu-ray copy. I have these in my iTunes library and thought they would play on my iPad. So what do I have to do to get 'em on my iPad?

    Thanks.

    Plug your iPad to iTunes. Drag movie to iPad.

    Hmmm, I did this when I first plugged my iPad to iTunes but the movies wouldn't go on the iPad... :confused:

    it should work, i've done it with mine.

    is your iPad set to automatically sync videos or to manually do it?

    Make sure the iPad is connected and iTunes has opened and performed the back up and sync (if you have it set to do so when connected)

    Click your iPad down the left
    Click the Movies tab along the top of the summary page
    Ensure the movies you want are ticked to sync.

    (you may need to fiddle with the drop down boxes to ensure it's set to sync over what you choose and not choose for you what gets sync'd)

    Hope this helps, and doesn't come across as patronising.

    Movie On Ipad

    I put movies from Itunes on my Ipad all the time. My wife and I fly a lot and it really passes the time. I just synch and take it from Itunes to the Ipad of my choice.
