I have music and films in my itunes library which are purchased and legal they all play on my computer through itunes but when i sync the ipad some will play and some won't. I can't see any difference in size or format.
Is there something I am doing wrong?

When you say legally purchased, we're they purchased through iTunes itself or are some of them ripped from DVD's you own?

thinking about this some more, could DRM stop the tracks from being played on a different computer/iPad than the one they were downloaded to.

Is there any DRM on music and movies which restricts to only one computer/device? Even Apple allow it on 5 devices.

Without more information on his problem it is difficult to tell. A wild guess might be that some films legally purchased on DVD but not ripped into the correct ipad format?

you are probably right...maybe he could tell us what format they are in and what app they are using to play them with.

@ angus: a bit more info is needed if someone is going to help solve your problem.

Thanks for the replies, answers to your questions.

All films and music were bought through itunes and were on the same computer that i am syncing to.

Still a mystery?

I don't have an ipad yet but I have a similar scenario with my ipod which is caused by the bit rate at which the music has been stored as the computer will play higher quality music than the ipod, does the same apply to the ipad?
