Open iTunes (install it if you don't have it) Import those videos into iTunes then attach your iPad and sync those videos to your iPad.

Another way. You can use a USB flash drive & the camera connection kit.
Plug the USB flash drive into your computer & create a new folder titled DCIM. Then put your movie/photo files into the folder. The files must have a filename with exactly 8 characters long (no spaces) plus the file extension (i.e., my-movie.mov; DSCN0164.jpg).
Now plug the flash drive into the iPad using the camera connection kit. Open the Photos app, the movie/photo files should appear & you can import. (You can not export using the camera connection kit.)

What format are they in? (What's the file extension?)

it's in .avi format. The files are located on my Windows 7 laptop.
I have itunes on my laptop but still don't know how to upload the video files to the iPad3

You'll need to either convert them to H.264 MP4's or use a third-party player to play them back. The former requires Handbrake, the best (and free!!!) converters available; the latter can only be done if your video isn't full HD but, say, standard definition only. Note that most non-camera AVI's have MSMPEG4 or DivX / XviD (but NOT the only supported M-JPEG) video stream; therefore, even if you try to import them via CCK, they remain unreadable.
I've posted in several AVI-specific threads here; see e.g. https://discussions.apple.com/message/18444371?ac_cid=tw123456#18444371

if you have real player if you don't download it
open real player, select your video and select convert to on the left and select your device and select ok then start
when it is finish select ok and it will add to iTunes then open iTunes and select your device when is connected to your computer when you are converting your videos when you select your device select sync....

I don't think it's worth preferring other video converters to HandBrake. The latter is far better than anything else out there - and is free!
