Do the movie file play on your ipad?
If the file transfer was succesful, try vlc. If it can't be opened with that, then something is probably wrong with the file.

Firstly, I need to sort out my typing. Secondly, I just get an error message saying
"No suitable decoder module: VLC does not support the audio or visual format "undf" Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this."
So no, it didn't work sadly.
Strange thing is, it plays on the iPad, so the cant be anything wrong with it can there?

Appears that something happend to the file during the transfer to the computer. Windows media player, quicktime and the multi-format vlc does not play it.
Importing personal photos & videos from device to your computer

Seems I'm not going to be able to solve this one, but thanks for the help. Is there anyone that can come up with a way of getting this large file onto a PC or laptop in a viewable form? Importing doesn't work, I've tried onto a laptop and a mac, and obviously the photo transfer app didn't work (waste of £1.99 there!) so I'm still looking for any inspirational ideas about how I can get this video onto another computer of any kind.

VLC plays *everything*, so something really got screwed up if it doesn't recognize the format.
What transfer app did you use? I normally use Picasa to pull videos off the devices, and have never had a problem with them.

Thanks, but all no good. Tried Dropbox but it couldn't find the video, as for phototransferapp, that's what i had already used. I think I'll have to ask a new question and see if any new geniuses are about today to answer, but I fear I'm going to have to save little bits and delete the rest. Bummer

Did you say this was a PC? If so, the iPad should appear under "My Computer" as a digital camera. Right click->explore... and it will open like a disk drive. The pictures and videos will be .jpg and .mov files. You should be able to just copy it like any other file.

It's a laptop. When I connect the iPad, it will import photos and small videos but doesn't recognise this huge file. Also, when I explore iPad (it doesn't appear as a digital camera) it still doesn't find this file. Am flummoxed. Currently trying a free trial of Sharefile, which is aimed at businesses but even that can't transfer anything over 2gb Sioux downloading flash - obviously not an option in the ipad. Am flummoxed.
