When i try and drag PDF files into my the books icon under devices on itunes a message says that it didnt copy the PDF because it wouldnt play on my ipad and when i try and drag it into the book icon in my itunes library nothing happens.I have also tried to add a pdf through itunes/file/add file to library but nothing happens also.
I have the latest version of ibooks and i downloaded it through the ipad.
Have you synced since you downloaded the iBooks update? Did you update to the latest iTunes? First update iTunes, then sync.... You will then be able to add PDF.....

No i didnt update itunes,i am using 126.96.36.199.2,i dont want to update itunes at this stage.
That's it. Gotta be iTunes 9.2 before this will work...
Ok thanks,now I know what it is,I thought it was just a iBooks update thAt was needed.
ok,i have updated to itunes 9.2,but it seems unstable as far as adding pdf files.
There are some pdf files it wont let me add,but i have no problems adding them with other pdf apps.
Some that i have added successfully took me several tries at dragging them to the library before they were added.
Anyone else have seen this problem ??
Stwange. In my limited experience, it accepted every PDF I tried (not many). You might want to look at GoodReader. It's excellent at handling PDF's and uses the app/sync feature to transfer the files. Plus, GoodReader allows you to organize PDF's in to a hierarchy. All that for $0.99...
To get several files in at once, but them in one folder.
Goto File/Add Folder to Library
Locate the folder that contains the files you want to import
Click "Select Folder" to point it to the folder that contains the files you want to import.
You can check to be sure they were imported by selecting "recently added" in the play-list menu on the left.
Plug in your iPad
Go to the Books tab
Be sure ether all books are being synced or that there are check marks by the PDF files you want to put on the iPad.
The PDF files are now in iBooks. In iBooks on your iPad goto Library. At the top left you will see two options... books and PDF's....... be sure and select PDF and you will see your PDF titles.
If the above does not work then perhaps the PDF files are corrupt......
Something else that will be of help to you is to spend some time learning how to use your products. Apple has how-to's, videos and faqs for their products.
