    I have several movies that are not iTunes movies. iPad doesn't accept it. How can I copy my videos to iPad? Any suggestions?

    I've been going the handbrake method. It's free and it works. I use the apple tv preset, and then just drag the completed file over onto iTunes and sync.

    Converting dvd's take forever tho so if someone has a speedier recommendation that would be nice.

    Handbreak is great, it's totally free and powerful but a little bit complicated and not quite easy-to-use. I used handbreak for my iPhone.
    When I got an iPad, one of my friends sent me an aimersoft Mac DVD to iPad converter. He bought something else from them before and received a discount newsletter for the new product, so he bought it for only a few bucks and gave it to me.

    You have to convert those videos to an iTunes compatible format. It converts any video file format to that would be compatible to the iPad. Once done, connect your iPad to the computer and then copy it.

    I endorse this product. It may take a few hours to convert, but it is a very simple program for those who aren't all that tech savvy. I'm testing it currently to see if using Mac the Ripper to extract the video ts file then using the DVD to iPad converter to put the movie in mp4 speeds things up a bit.

    Video conversion requires a lot of horse power. I use Handbrake too and thankfully I have a powerful 8 core Mac Pro. Handbrake is very powerful also as it usually uses about 6 of those 8 processors on this machine and it means I am able to convert a 90 min movie in about 30 min. Now, if I use the same version of HB in my Mac Book Pro 2.0 it takes more than 2 hours.

    So you wont need another software but a powerful machine!. Sorry about that
