    Have you looked in the Videos app? That's where they should appear.

    Click on your video icon, then make sure you are under the movies tab, if you don't see your movies you will need to connect your iPad to your computer open iTunes and click on your iPad in the left window then click on the movies menu and make sure our have sync movies checked.

    How many movies are listed on the device under Settings > General > About ? i.e. does that figure agree with what you think the number should be ?


    Also have you tried a reset ? Press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.
