I'm not sure I understand your question. This is the iPad 2...regular size, not the mini. They have out a 3 & 4, and I think they are releasing the 5 this month...or maybe it's the 6th. This is cheaper because it's an older version, but it does what I need it to do.
If you haven't received an answer yet. Here's what you do. Put DVD in computer and reformat to .mp4. You may need to purchase or download software to do this. Once you have the mp4 format, add the movie to iTunes. Then connect your iPad and sync the movie.
