Karthik Gunasekaran: Hi, I am planning to buy innotab 3s for my 3 years old son. I have chosen innotab over leappad 2 because of the this feature. So please confirm whether it is still possible to have our own movies converted to innotab format. Otherwise i have to go for leappad itself.
Jessica McCoy: So does this mean all the other settings are the same and we choose H.264 instead of XVID? Or did the other settings change too?
Monica Street: Looking forward to the next video with H.264 instructions- can't get it to work right now even though I preset the AVI converter to both divx and H.264 :(
travisgrindal: I don't know for sure. I don't have a computer with Windows 8 yet. Try it and let us know.
Jessica Mojica: This tutorial has helped me put alot of my 4yr old's favorite movies. My last laptop failed on me and I now have a laptop with windows 8, will the DVD passkey that you have outlined in this tutorial still work?
Hellybells1974: I have uninstalled the Freemake and then reinstalled an older version. I'm using 4.0.0. but not sure if this makes a difference or if just uninstalling and reinstalling helps. When I've done this, it works. Saying that I have DVD's that do work, and some that dont. I'm sure its a mixture of versions of Freemake,etc thats confusing the situation. Try it, its wored for me :-)
Hellybells1974: I have the same problem. My newly installed Freemake version is 'not responding' when opening the DVD drive. I'm guessing its something to do with a new version?
bjackdog: Hi Tavis, I think its been a couple years since you posted this video. I bought my daughter an Innotab 2 last week mainly because I had seen your vidoes claiming you could download entire movies. I tried 3 different movies and none of them work. I get as far as the freemake page and click on the +DVD icon, then the opening icon comes up and I wait and wait (hours)and nothing happens until I click on it and then it says its not responding. Can you help me?
Karen Guzman: Ok please because i have two little girls criying because their want to see videos , that the used to see before im so dissapoint i dont know why i didnt read these before the update ... Pleaseeee help meeee #nohappymommy
R joy: i emailed vetch and yes they said change to H.264 and upload through the learning lodge nav instead of the sd card i done all this and yes now through learning lodge videos show up i transferred the videos and even now get thumb nails but the videos still will not play please can you look into this as ive come so far only to fail again using this tablet for hosp appoints and stays and gutted that i stupidly updated it
R joy: please make one lol my son is gutted as i updated it today and now his vids wont work wont to get it going asap please
travisgrindal: The main thing I know about the firmware update is that the Innotab no longer supports Xvid or divx. You have to use H.264 instead. I'm working on trying to figure out the details and I'll probably end up posting another video about how to get it all working again.
Janine Frere: If it wasn't for you I would have known how to put videos on my children's innotabs 2 years ago but just wondering if you figured out a fix since the last update? I have spent 3 days and I can't figure it out
travisgrindal: If I was to guess what the problem is, I'd think there was something physically wrong with the Innotab. My first guess would be your kid spilled something on it and water got inside it and messed it up. That would be my best guess.
imahrguru: Travis. You are the most helpful and knowledgeable person on youtube for Innotab2. I was hoping you could help us. Our Innotab2 keeps getting a fuzzy loud noise and then fuzzy screen and crashes within a just a few minutes. We've used regular batteries and tried all rechargeable batteries. We haven't messed with the flat circle battery yet, but wondering if it is just defective? Please advise. Going to the beach soon!
Amber R: Everything went fine until I tried to play the videos on my daughters Innotab 2s. It plays in the folder it was copied to. Its Tangled the Disney movie. I used DVDFab, then Free Make to turn it into an AVI, followed directions to a T. Any help would be much appreciated.
Hellybells1974: You're a star!! I've heard loads about the firmware etc. I've tried every combination of converter and settings. Typical mum of two, with a little bit of knowledge. You're freeware video is the easiest to follow. Literally putting in the DVD, it automatically choosing the file etc. Hopefully you're having you're brain waive to fix if!! Thank you, especially from all the non Techy mums in the UK :-D
travisgrindal: Don't throw it away yet. I think I may have figured out how to make them work again. I have to find my kid's Innotab to know for sure. I'll be posting another video about it in the next couple of days if it works.
Hellybells1974: I'd second that! My boys have been enjoying watching DVD's through the Innotab until a few weeks ago and I've updated it through the LLN. I've been on my PC all day trying to find a fix but to no avail !! I'm not particually techy so your youtubes have been invaluable. I'm about to throw the Innotab piece of junk out of the window :-D
Kirstey Dowling: Did anybody managed to cope with "loading failed" problem when watching videos after the April 2013 update?
Алена Ярмолович: Did anybody managed to cope with "loading failed" problem when watching videos after the April 2013 update?
schweetheart24ify: hi i used installed all the programs to download the dvds to the innotab a couple months ago. it worked great! now my problem is the trial versions expired. do u know anymore programs to help me.
travisgrindal: Also, don't update the your Innotab through the LLN if it prompts you to. I've had a lot of people saying it made their videos quit working. I'm going to update one of mine and see if it makes the videos not play and then see if I can get them to work anyway. We'll see what happens.
travisgrindal: I think it doesn't fast forward well just because the Innotab isn't very powerful. I think it has enough power to play the videos, but the fast forward and rewind thing doesn't work well for me either. Some do and some don't. Maybe a "class 10" SD card would be faster and it would work better, but I haven't tried it to tell you for sure. Also, the class 10 SD cards usually cost more because they are faster than the class 4's I usually buy.
Cristy Van Popering: I converted the DVDs to Innotabs and it went so well. We are unable to fast forward while watching the videos. Do you know why or perhaps what I have done wrong? Thanks for all of your help! Your videos are fabulous!!
Claire Mann: Wow thank you!! If in doubt search on You Tube. Took a bit of fiddling as we are now in April 2013 and systems do change but I have managed to get a film on my Inotab 1. Trying another now. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this. I have been sharing the link for the video. I will certainly have one happy child on a flight!!
mimy85loz: HELLO ... my problem is that my InnoTab read music and photos but not the videos, I already converter all to format .AVI as you indicate but still I get the legend: loading failed in all the videos could help me with this? or is it that my InnoTab doesn't work?? I hope to answer thanks for the help
Jill Edler: I have been chatting w vtech about the issue they haven't really been any help they have me directions and links to "clean " the tablet internally. So ill try it if it works or helps I will post but kind sounds like if u but an innotab... Don't update it lol. Both my pink and nblue one both have been updated. And videos have been put in card both cards play on pink tablet but neither play on blue. I wonder if the pink has different programming or something. Well c
kbeast98: Something tells me its due to the latest firmware. I've been playing them like this for months until I upgraded the firmware from the Learning Lodge Software, now none of mine will work.
Jill Edler: mine did the same my daughters innotab 2 it worked perfect on my sons innotab 2 it did not.
Jill Edler: it plays on my daughters innotab 2 but not my sons innotab 2
Jill Edler: ok so I took the steps and got everything setup and got the videos saved onto the memory card on both of my kids innotabs. it plays just fine on my daughters but on my sons it says loading failed. so I thought id switch cards and see if it would play on my daughters. it did no problem. switched it back and still says loading failed y will it not platy on his?
kollchassjr: i have the same problem it works on the innotab 1 but not the innotab2s
Sapid Shelly: read bottom post first .....(f:)is innotab harddrive. I can not get a DVD to rip, I get a message that I must have CUDA, I run 64 Bit on Vista with nvidia GeForce 9700M GTS
I clicked on CUDA in the freemake box downloaded it and windows said NOT SAFE
I am using a Toshiba laptop Qosmio X305-711...suggestions? Other users, when welcome to VDFab Passkey box opens just close it and continue with Travisgrindal's instructions
Sapid Shelly: I downloading paskey (not lite) and freemake. I copied the URL in youtube, opened Freemake clicked on paste URL, clicked to AVI, clicked on the gear icon and set the presets you said then clicked convert after conversion is complete box appeared clicked ok then in the rt hand upper corner click on show in folder this opens computer c: user, go to the left and open the user folder+ then video and ur videos will show up. Innotab 2s was on and pluged into computer drag movie to G: is SD card
Courtny Wooten: yeah Freemaker isnt working for me any more either. If I use WinX DVD Ripper what would the formats be and does it have to be converted to AVi
travisgrindal: If you want to get a good program and are willing to pay a little money, you can get Slysoft's "AnyDVD". You could probably also use WinX DVD Ripper by setting the audio and video settings correctly. The problem with AnyDVD is that it is a little pricey. WinX DVD Ripper is around $30-$40.
tony samper: Hi my lads enjoyed having his movies on the innotab put recently paskey has not been working can you suggest any other program's cheers
travisgrindal: Try to do the steps on a different computer and see if you get the same results.
Terrence Young: I have followed all the instructions exactly, but I keep getting a "loading failed" error when I try to play the movies on my sons innotab 2, any thoughts?
1chelseadawn: I downloaded movies to my phones sd card how would I be able to put them in the innotab 2s?
travisgrindal: You may have to purchase an app like "WinX DVD Ripper" if you want to always be able to get the newest movies. The apps used in this video are free and usually work real well with older movies.
John Bonecutter: I have used this process and have had about 50% success. I was able to put movies such as wall-e, cars,finding nemo, and the incredibles. Using the same process i can not convert wreck it ralph and monsters inc. These are dvds i recently purchased and are part of the bluray dvd combo packs. I am converting from the dvd. Only the 1st min of the movie plays. The movie clock keeps running but a black screen with no volume. Got help for me? Thanks
Amy Angel: Your tutorial on downloading youtube videos was awesome. I did it with ease. I am trying to download DVD movies now but when I try to convert the movie in Freemake, it freezes. I don't know what it could be.
travisgrindal: Yeah, that lock is a common problem. If you put the SD card into the Innotab, it auto creates all the directories it wants. Anyway, I'm glad it is working for you. What brand of 32 GB card did you get that works? A lot of people have been asking which 32 GB card works.
George Moreno: Yeah I had to add the LLN file on my sd card. After several times of trying it wouldn't work and then I figured out that the lock on my adapter kept sliding on when I put it in my laptop...I got it working now. Thanks my daughter is happy with her videos!!
Keysha Blessed: Your vids helped me alot. Thanks
travisgrindal: The 1GB is probably the internal memory. Look for a different drive letter. If there aren't any more, try a different SD card. Your 32GB card may not be recognized.
George Moreno: the drive that has the lnll file is less than 1 gb large and file will not fit the card is a 32 gb one not sure if this happened to you and you just have to have a smaller file.... any light on this matter will be appreciated thanks!!!!
