Movie "was Not Copied - Because It Cannot Be Played
Dec 5, 2010
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."
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.
I synced my ipad and my iphone3G S with my MacBook Pro, everything else is fine apart from you can't watch any youtube videos on the ipad when the ipad connects to the wifi network. however, you can watch the youtube videos when the ipad connects to the 3G net work; i haven't changed any sittings at all. For my iphone3G S it simply does't play any youtube videos at all. Does anyone know what the problem is and please help me!!! When they both don't play the youtube video the error message is "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.
I have just won an ipad in a competition and am still trying to find my way around it. It is a 16gb model. By mistake I copied all my mp3's onto it and now it's nearly full. how to delete certain ones?
I recently noticed that my wifi only iPad 4th Gen had lost 2 m4r format ringtones that were on there. I have still got the ringtones in iTunes, but for some reason it now says that "ringtone not copied to ipad because it can't be played on this device" when I have tried to put it on the device via iTunes.They have been on the device before, because one of them was used as the default for incoming e-mails.Â
What I can do to get these ringtones back on my device. The tones themselves work fine on my iPhone 5s.Â My iPad is using 8.1.2, and I am using iTunes 188.8.131.52.Â
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?
Im torn as what to buy...Wife wanted tetris so i got it for her and now im trying to figure out which game is worth it for me?...I was thinking the Real Racing HD looked cool but i never played it on iphone....
When I drop a JPG or PNG from explorer onto my iPad in iTunes, it reports:"filename.jpg" was not copied to the iPad "..." because it cannot be played on this iPadI have tried different images ranging in size from 100x100 to 3000x3000 jpg's as well as png files. Nothing works.
I got an IPad, but I have a huge problem. I have a website, which contains some quictime stream video. but IPad cannot play them at all. Movies have a black screen, in the middle there is a paly button which is crossed out.
I copied a couple of DVD's to my computer, copied them into Itunes, synced them to the Ipad, but how do I play them? Is there an app for this obviously there is or several)? Would someone give me a hint. Thanks
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
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.
I have an MP3 file on my Windows desktop that I want to play on the iPad. I connected my iPad to my desktop, opened iTunes on the desktop, and added the MP3 file to my iTunes library. It plays fine there. Then I dragged the file to "Music" underneath DEVICES > Owner's iPad. But when I go to the iPad, open up iTunes, it's nowhere to be found.
Just got my iPad 3. And I started loading it up with iPad apps, some that are not on my iPhone. Later, I looked on my iPhone and lo and behold, there are the apps that I do not have on my iPhone!! How do I stop apps from my iPad being installed on to my iPad? I have not synced either one of them yet. I am not using iCloud. How did this happen and how do I stop it from happening?
