Movies File Wont Copy

Jun 29, 2010

I have a rip of Teletubbies I want to get on the iPad for my kid. It is a 2+ hour double episode DVD and is at 2.65 GB on my Mac's disk. I have it in iTunes and set to sync with the iPad. Halfway through the copying process, the iPad errors out with:

"Attempting to copy to the disk 'xxx's iPad' failed. The disk could not be read from or written to."

and then

"iTunes could not copy 'Teletubbies...' to the iPad 'xxx's iPad' because the file could not be read or written"

Is there a file size limit of movies or transfers? I'm pretty sure it is within the resolution specs at 976 x 544, h.264 AAC.

IPad 2 :: Copy File From Pc Folder And Paste Into My Default Itunes Library Called Movies

Jul 3, 2012

Finally decided to try hooking my iPad up to iTunes and attempt to transfer some movies that I have in m4v format from the pc to the iPad .. Easy enough ... Right?

Here's what happens... I copy the file from the pc folder and do a paste into my default itunes library called movies. Seems to cut and paste just fine. But when I do a "sync" , nothing happens.....

I am able to do a direct copy and paste straight into the "movie" area that comes up under my iPad in devices and the movie appeared in my video folder without performing a sync. Aren't things in the library suppose to sync with the corresponding folders in the device?

Am I doing something wrong?.... I have the preference setting to not sync automatically, but that shouldn't cause this behavior. So in the end, I got what I wanted to accomplish completed, but wanted to try and get a better handle on this iTunes thing.

When I Transfer music in my iPod, I put it In The music library and it seems to sync just fine to the music area under the device. Btw....none of this media was purchased through iTunes store.

IPad 2 :: 18 GB Free Space And Cannot Copy 1 MB File

Oct 8, 2011

My JB ipad2 32gb Settings indicates it has 18.5 mb free space. I have discovered that if I try to copy more than 750Mb to it at one time, whether one file or a group of files to it, I get the message "The item "" can't be copied because there isn't enough free space." If I copy 750mb or less, I can copy to the ipad and the free space goes down as it should.

Want To Copy And Watch Movies?

Jun 20, 2010

I was going to buy an iPad for one usage:

I have ripped lots of DVD that I own, into ISO files, which I played on Mac very easily.

Many of those DVD are lecture and eductional subjects. I want to be able to just copy on to iPad and watch them when I am on the train, travelling, etc.

When I went to Apple store yesterday, I was about to buy an iPad, only to find out that there is no simple way watch a DVD or DVD iso file on iPad. I was told that I would need to convert it, then put it in iTunes library, then sync.

What would be the simplest way to do this?

How To Copy Movies To Macbook?

Nov 23, 2010

Did a search on the forums and (surprisingly) didn't find an answer.

I have home movies I've made with iMovie on my iPad and am visiting relatives who'd like to keep copies. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a way to transfer them from the iPad to their computer or to my Macbook so I could xfer via USB.

Shouldn't I be able to just drag my movies within iTunes between iPad & computer? I sorta get it with copy-protected content, but why can't I move my own stuff around?

How To Copy Movies From Netflix?

Aug 10, 2010

If I rent a movie from Netflix, and I put the disk in my computer, can I copy the DVD disk onto my iMac and download the movie onto my iPad when I sync? Or won't it copy due to copy protection?

Do I have to rent a movie from iTunes?

I know I can download the movie and watch it on my home computer. I'm just not sure I can watch it on the iPad. I didn't want to use up all my data allotment by downloading movies directly to the iPad.

Unable To Copy Texts-program Jumps To The End Of The File?

Sep 6, 2010

GoodReader is proving a very useful app. But there is one thing in particular that I regard as a major flaw. I often use the search tool and then want to copy a text selection for pasting elsewhere. But as soon as I tap the central icon to get me into the mode that allows that, the program jumps to the end of the file!This means I have to find the text I want by scrolling, which for a long document frustrates me greatly.I get the impression that the app has been around for quite a long time? If so I'm surprised that this hasn't been fixed.Terry, East Grinstead, UK

While Syncing Cannot Copy Movies From ITunes?

May 1, 2010

I am trying to convert some MKVs to play on my iPad with a video converter software.

I have tried outputting in two different formats and am able to add them to iTunes, however, iTunes is unable to generate a thumbnail and the videos won't play. Furthermore, they won't copy to the iPad due to an error something like "this video will not be copied to the iPad because it cannot be played on this iPad."

I have tried converting videos with the following specs:

(1) H.264, 1280*720, 3000 Kbps, 30 frames per second with AAC audio as 128 Kbps, 44.1kHz, 2 channels

(2) H.264, 640*480, 1500 Kbps, 29.97 frames per second with AAC audio as 128 Kbps, 32kHz, 2 channels

The converted videos do play in VLC (as does the source)

iPhone OS 3.1.3
