I rented three iTunes movies on my computer, then transferred them to my iPad to watch on an airplane ride. Once in flight, with iPad in airplane mode, I keep getting a message telling me that the movies cannot be played. What am I doing wrong?

I created the movies directly from within Quicktime (Share-> MobilMe gallery). Using Safari on my Mac everything works fine. Its only on the iPad that it fails!What is the matter here?

I transferred some videos from my grandparents camera to their iPad. It was already in .mp4 format, iTunes plays it fine, and it copied the videos over. The thumbnails are displayed under Videos, but when I play the video I only get a black screen whilst the audio plays (correctly) in the background. Also, when I tap the screen, no video interface comes up. ...|mp4-video-play-itunes-syncs-ipad-play

I was giving my aunt and uncle and iPad tutoring session yesterday and he mentioned trying to watch the iPad videos on Apple.com and that they would not work. Their iPad is using AT&T and I was thinking that might be the reason. If not, anyone know why these movies dont work on an iPad? Seems a bit silly!

Ive had my iPad for a couple months now, and all of a sudden my good pair of headphones wont play through it.When I plug them in and start any audio it plays through the built in speakers, but when I pull them out while its playing an ipod song itll stop, so it is recognizing it.The speakers arent broken because they will work with both my iPhone and iMac still. Also, other poor quality headphones will work in the audio jack, just not these ones, even though they have always worked before.Hope someone has a solution to my problem. iPad 32gb wifi...|headphones-play-ipad

My iPad doesn't want to play my music. I pick a song and it shows that it's going play but it doesn't count down or play anything. I know the volume is fine because I could watch and hear YouTube videos fine. I haven't heard my music in awhile, but early I bought some music from iTunes and transfer some music from my computer to my iPad. Some of the music were from CDs. Could that be the problem? I don't know what to do. I already restarted the iPad. Please help and thanks :)...|ipad-play-music

I have several dozen short video clips I shot. In my other iPods, if I put them into a playlist, they will play through one after the other. The iPad plays only one then stops. This happens whether I select the video from the iPod icon or the Video icon. I can select any vid from the list but it will only play that video then go back to the list.
