Re: optical cable

Re: Drivers License not good ID?

Re: Travel to Denmark

I've been to Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and France in the last 3-4 years and haven't had any issues with credit cards. A few places (subway in France) wanted cards with chips (not necessarily chip and pin) but otherwise no [more]

Re: Europe Trip Notes (Part 2)

Re: Downloading video onto IPad???


Which gets us back to the OP's problem. My response would be to ask how he got the video onto his iPad.
