How to convert YouTube to iPad for Mac


I've got a bunch of YouTube videos and stored them on my Mac. Some of them are FLV formats, and some are MP4 formats with higher resolution. All of these YouTube videos couldn't be played back on my new iPad. Now I'm looking for a good <a href="http://www.videotoipadconverter.org/">ipad video converter</a> that converts YouTube to iPad supported video formats.<br /> Finally I picked a YouTube to iPad converter tool called iPad video converter software.

It just takes a few mouse clicks to convert YouTube to MP4 files using this YouTube to iPad Converter software.<br /> Here I'll show you how to <a href="http://www.ipad-converter-mac.net/guides/convert-youtube-to-ipad-for-mac.html">convert youtube to ipad for mac</a> supported H.264 videos for watching on the iPad step-by-step.<br /> Step 1: Download & install <a href="http://www.ipad-converter-mac.net/">ipad converter for mac</a>.<br /> We'll be using the very nice YouTube to iPad video converter software called iPad video converter for converting YouTube to iPad compatible video format. Next step is to install this YouTube to iPad Converter software.<br /> Step 2: Run iPad video converter and add YouTube videos<br /> Now run iPad video converter and click the big button "Add..." to add YouTube flv/mp4 videos from your hard disk, you may add as many YouTube videos as you want to convert to iPad H.264 videos for watching on iPad.

You may add a watermark in iPad video converter. Just select the title you'd like to add watermark, then click the button 'Edit' to launch video editing window. If you want to crop video or add some special effects, click the first two tabs.<br /> Step 4: Change the output settings to convert YouTube to iPad<br /> You'll find a wide range of preset video setting options avaiable for Apple iPad. You may select "iPad MPEG-4 (640*480) Video(*.mp4)" for converting YouTube videos to iPad supported videos. Remember that the output file size and converting speed mostly depends on the Bitrate you set. Larger Bitrate, larger file size and longer convertion time.<br /> Step 5: Start converting YouTube to iPad video format<br /> Now you may click the big button "Start" to begin converting YouTube to iPad compatible video files. Once the convert is complete, iPad video converter will place on your Desktop a new iPad format version of your video that will play on the iPad.

Hi there, I think it may be to do with the format of the harddrive - see if you used the Maxtor in a Windows XP environment it would have been formatted to suit that OS.

Is the Harddrive formatted to NTFS?

use your task manager to see if it is actually doing anything.Right click the task bar and select task manager,,,at the bottom of the task manager it will tell you how much CPU,Memory,and how many processes are running.You can look at the processes and see exactly which ones are using the CPU.Another way to get to the task manager is control+alt+delete click in that order and continue holding down each key untill you have pressed all the keys,then release all three at the same time.

Maxtor enclosure


With great difficulty , i dont have a step by step guide , but i did the same thing , if you do do this you wont have the external shell anymore i ended up breaking mine to bits , so i suggest dont do this if u still want a external shell.

How to open: get a flat head screw driver and try to pop it open with brute strength careful you don't touch the HDD enclosed inside and to keep the wiring intact. there will be hidden screws inside the case which i ripped off.

Sorry i cant be of further help and Goodluck! :)

Maxtor basics 160gb drive will not work with Vista


Hi Nuisance101, try downloading & run Maxtor's MaxBlast 5 software before you drive yourself nuts.
