Movie "was Not Copied - Because It Cannot Be Played

I have a movie that I ripped a long time ago to play on my AppleTV but since I still haven't gotten around to watching it I'm going to put the movie on my iPad.In iTunes, I drag the movie onto the iPad to copy it (I am manually managing) and I get this error:"movie was not copied to the iPad name because it cannot be played on this iPad."So I select the movie and from iTunes' Advanced menu I choose "Make an iPod/Apple TV version" and I get the error:"One or more videos were not converted because they are already in the correct format."

IMovie Export Cannot Be Played Or Copied To It
I have created an iMovie project. Every time I export it and try to load the movie onto my iPad, I get an iTune error saying the movie can not be played on my iPad and therefore was not copied. I tried to export using .mov and .mpeg formats and tried loading on my iPad via Movies and iPhoto. Neither won't copy. But, when exported movie is in iTunes, I can play the movie via shared library with ZERO issues.

Purchased Movies Get Error "This Movie Could Not Be Played"
I'm trying out my new 3G 64GB iPad and noticed that my purchased movies (Star Trek in HD and UP in SD) both get the error "This movie could not be played". The movie does come up to show a single frame, then stops and gives the error. Some free movies and TV shows appear to be working fine.

Syncing File Name Were Not Copied To The System
This problem has bothered me for a couple of weeks. Copied here is the exact error message iTunes delivers when I try to sync a video library over to my iPad."Some of the items in the iTunes library, including "file name", were not copied to the iPad because they could not be found."What is so weird relates to the randomness of it. I have 19 video files that show in iTunes. When I sync to the iPad, I only get about 5 that move over correctly. The others get an error message as noted above.Does this issue have to do with the files (i.e. attributes, type (.mp4), or any thing

Some Items In The ITunes Library Not Copied?
I synched my Ipad with my windows computer today using Itunes and it deleted four movies from my Ipad saying they were not authorized on my computer. They were all installed as digital copies, has disney started expiring digital copies or something? The exact message I get is:

Somee of the items in the iTunes library, including "Monsters, Inc.", were not copies to the iPad "Edward's iPad" because you are not authorized for them on this computer.

I did what they suggested authorizing the computer, it made no difference. These movies were copied to iTunes from the original DVDs included with the movies. The only reason I can see that they would no longer be authorized is Disney and at least one other studio "expired" them. They were working fine on both the iPad and the computer before today, though I haven't synched since July because I was out of the country for over a month.

However, for the applications I have downloaded and need to modify, the png's that I copy onto my desktop to alter are all blank. No matter what program I use, they all are blank. I must be doing something wrong. I've googled it for hours and haven't found any solution.

A Way To Lock The Screen / Copied All Iphone Apps
I really would like to lock the screen so it doesn't change position if I move it a little bit. Anybody know if this is possible?

Why the heck did it copy all of my Iphone apps onto itself even though I told it not too? Not too happy about that...

Otherwise I think it is absolutely amazing. The touch screen is very responsive. In fact, I think it is perfect.

Doesn't Allow Certain Videos To Be Played?
I recently purchased an iPad and have been playing around with it. I've noticed that the YouTube app doesn't always return all the search results that I know are available. Namely, I can't seem to find any music videos. I've even tried doing a search on my laptop for a music video, then do the same search in the YT app, and nothing. I even went as far as sending myself the link to the video, then accessing the link through Safari, but even that won't play it. Is there some kind of censorship going on that doesn't allow certain videos to be played?

Error Message - Was Not Copied Because The Video Format Is Not Supported By The IPad
I made a purchase of Mad Men season 1 and I cannot transfer some of the episodes from iTunes to my iPad, when I try and sync my tv shows I get this message: 'was not copied because the video format is not supported by the ipad' Now note that I am downloading the same series, same season from iTunes. I did not download this from a P2P site. I went and checked the files that were transfering fine and noticed a difference: 

The files that transfered fine were in 1280 x 729 dimensions The files that DID NOT transfer were in 1920 x 1080 dimensions Everything else like the codec, audio channel, format is the same. I also tried to go to advanced in my iTunes and create an iPad version of the file, could not. I even tried to use Quick time with no luck as well.  how can itunes download two versions of the same product?

Cannot Be Played On System - Sync A Subset Of Media
My iPod is 27.84 GB, so besides compressing my songs, I only sync a subset of my media. So I got the largest iPad I could get, and sync all of my media.I have a song and a video that tell me:"Fan video - Terminus Est by Per Maim" was not copied to the iPad "Howard Brazee's iPad" because it cannotbe played on this iPad.I don't want to click to not show me again - because I want to know when I have other problems. But I don't want synchronization to stop either. This .mp4 plays fine on my Mac's iTunes.So - my first goal is to get that video playable. If that is impossible, I want to not delay my synchronization, but have the ability to find out which songs and videos aren't getting synchronized.Home workgroup

Ipad Movie Size - Actual Viewable Area Of A Movie (wide Screen)
I plan on buying an Ipad soon but need to know the actual viewable area of a movie (wide screen) when shown in the 4:3 format. In other words, how much real estate does the picture have after considering the black bars on top and bottom of screen? I know the Ipad is 9.7 or close to that diagonally. Obviously black bars take up a fair chunk of that when watching a 2:35 widescreen movie though. Could you show me pictures of a movie on the Ipad just to get an idea of what it will look like?

My second question is about the rumored Ipad Mini. Will this device be next to useless showing movies on. (too small) If the big Ipad has a lot of real estate stolen by black bars, wont that mean the mini will be close to the iphone in terms of viewing area or am i getting confused? Would the mini be 4:3 ratio or 3:2 similar to iphone?
