There are a few things to check:
1. The settings you are using in your software actually make videos that work with the iPad. You might be able to add them to iTunes and even have it play them back, that doesn't mean anything. iTunes can perfectly handle a 1080p video with surround sound without issues. However, you can't sync that to an iPad 1. In other words, iTunes' ability to playback a video is not a direct inclination of iDevice compatibility.

2. iTunes knows where the video files are at and you can access them. Also make sure that you have direct read and write access to wherever the files are stored. Some people have encountered issues if their libraries are on an external hard drive, a secondary internal hard drive, or even a second partition. These issues arose with Windows Vista and 7 in that sometimes, for whatever reason, Windows will lock full access to certain drives and allow read only support.

If all else fails, there are other, better free programs you can use to convert your DVDs to an iPad (not Apple) compatible file.

Handbrake is the first that comes to mind.
