I have transferred my own DVDs to mp4 format to play on my ipad2. I put them on a memory stick to save the moment in the iPad. I bought a camera connection kit/USB kit but I can't get the movies to register - is this possible to do or do I have to put them onto the iPad? Any help please?

    On a previous iOS version I copied films via the kit (I haven't tried on iOS 5+) into the Photos app and was able to play them - I couldn't get them into the Videos app and films bought from Apple copied to Photos but didn't play (I assume that they only play in the Videos app). The kit only recognises content that is in a particular format - the card has to have a DCIM directory off its root, with the photos/videos underneath it with filenames exactly 8 characters long (no spaces) plus file extension.
