I am just setting up a new replacement Ipad2. I have had the same problem with the original and replacement- when I sync photos, I am not allowed to use 'choose folder' and have to go with 'All Photos'. I have all the photos in a single folder on the desktop and it sync's properly. However, when I go to sync a separate folder, it wipes out the first transfer and replaces with the second. I cannot get beyond 1 album. I just downloaded the latest Ipad2 software(over 1 hour) and did a restore. No diff...... Your help would be appreciated!
Ipad 2 , Imac running OSX 10.8.6
