    Mac to iPad movie transfer?
    Hello All,

    I would like to transfer movies that I have downloaded intp VUZE (not in iTunes) onto my new iPad Air. My iTunes is 11.1.5 (5) 64 bit and my iPad is IOS 7.1. Thank you for the help.


    Respectfully,
    Fred

    If you copy the movies from VUZE into your iTunes library, they can be synced to your new iPad Air. You don't necessarily have to download movies or other media via iTunes in order to copy them into your iTunes library. We do this all the time with home recordings so that we can sync them to iPods.

    I posted on another page using Handbrake (that has been suggested here by others also) to convert a DVD to the HD. Then it's easily dragged into iTunes and synced to the iPad. It's very easy to do.

    Yes you should be able to import to library directly from the 'Vuze Downloads' folder that is automatically created.

    Backup everything on your iPad to either your Mac or to iCloud. Then when you sync with iTunes on your Mac (new library) you can restore from backup. You can also copy your library elsewhere before you sync. Afterward, import the movies and music into your new library on the Mac.

    And as I answered you in your other thread its is possible,(http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/swi...nstead-pc.html) and it won't necessarily delete your iPad, and I'm not sure why it says so, but I know it won't, because I get it all the time when I'm on a new Library, as long as you have the same Apple ID.

    And please only post once on the subject so we don't get the run around from thread to thread

    Cheers

    Maybe a merge is needed Charlie ??

    To explain a bit farther- when I went to sync the new movie to the old ipad, a warning came up from itunes that stated, "If you sync this library, then you will lose your old library in the process- Do you want to continue?" or there about those words. This is why I was looking for a workaround- Thanks again!! Will only post once- but saw the same almost area and decided to jump in...
