For iPad use buzz player (really good for .avi) and avplayer hd ( nice for avi, mkv, flv, iso etc...is your iPad recognizing the USB device? You can link your files to those 2 app so there's no need to copy movie files to iPad
Iphone 4S, 6.1, Straight Talk Unlimited Talk & Text & about 2gb of true 3g data with working MMS, $45 a month no gimmicks, no unlock Bitch!!...PS..Hit the thanks button sigs are lame!

then all you need to do is launch ifile and put the ipad in the diagonal position. open the key on the left panel and click edit on the folder that has the films. select the files you want to play and click copy/link. i have cinexplayer and i browse to the app folder then documents inside the app folder. i then click edit again and link file. you cant remove the key or cck if you link the files or obviously the player wont find them. i then launch cinexplayer and all the files i linked are there. play away

P.S just tried avplayerhd on my ipad 2 and keeping it. it plays files with ac3 which cinexplayer does not. same applies though. transfer to the documents folder within the avplayer folder
If something seems too good to be true, it most certainly is.
Always look a gift horse in the mouth, unless you don't much care whether it has teeth or not.
And remember you can't cheat an honest man.


Don't forget to click thanks if I helped you!

I've worked it out now, just tried to watch .mkv in buzz and it was pretty bad! Has anyone else had this using buzz? Or it could be a slow mem stick?
