(My task was to export a new iMovie project created in iMovie 11 from my Mac Book Pro to my new iPad 11). It appears I corrupted my iMovie project trying to correct a 'Missing Media notice' when trying to export to iTunes then iPad11. Apple telephone support helped me solve the Missing Media alert but all the moving & recreating resulted in my background music being attached to the storyboard project clips ( blue background) (plays OK) and I now I also have music attached to my event Library clips. The video in the Event Library is the same as the scoreboard project with transitions. I can export it to iTunes (it plays there OK) but when I connect my new iPad 11 and open it in iPad Devises/Movies it will not sync to iPad. Checking back video icons I tried to sync, they were grayed out but still checked. Also I can't delete the 'attached' background audio or use the event library since they are no longer separate clips and contain the background music & transitions.

Hello, my name is Dan.
I will do my best to help you, the only stupid question is the unasked one.
Are you having fun yet?
Before I can answer that I need a little more info.
What version of OS X are you using?
Can you give me some background on what the Apple support had to do, I really don't want to cover the same ground.
You do realize that the iPad cannot use standard format video that iTunes can.
It may only be the format that it is in.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
