I am unable to export a slideshow from iPhoto to iTunes. In trying to export this slide show from iPhoto, I selected the Slideshow in the left column, clicked on the export button at the bottom, In the Export window.  Next I selected "Large" and checked "Automatically send slideshow to iTunes".


When, after several tries, the QuickTime movie failed to appear in iTunes, I dragged the .mov file from my iPhoto movie folder into the Movies folder in iTunes.


I have an iPad I with iOS 5.1.1.  When I try to sync this QuickTime movie to my iPad I get and error message, "Can not be copied because [name of movie] can not be played on this iPad.  This movie can be played normally in iTunes.


These are my selections for the Export:

Export is set to "Movie to QuickTime Movies",

This the window I get after I check Large and export:
