    Hi, I have a couple of video files that I can't get to work on my ipad. They were ripped from Handbrake with the Apple TV preset. I havent used handbrake in a while as I have a G5 imac and only get about 3-4 fps, I usually use and eyeTV Turbo but couldn't as one of the DVDs had subtitles.
    What happens is the files seem to sync to the iPad, they show up in iTunes on the iPad but they don't appear in the Movie App. I have tried restoring the iPad too.
    Both videos play happily on my iPhone 4.

    Any ideas?

    thanks

    Found out what was wrong. I had enabled parental controls when I got the iPad and forgot about it, so file would copy over but not show. I expected the file to be greyed out or have a red cross over it, not completely invisible.
