Either I am going insane or my Mac and iPad 2 are jinxed. I just can't get movie files, book files or TV show files to make the cross over from my Mac desktop computer over into iTunes and from there to my iPad. Take right now for instance. My iPad is connected to my Mac Mini by a USB cable and when I open iTunes I can see, down the left hand side, Stephen Riley's iPad with a few icons next to it.
Meanwhile, I have Googled .... "How do I send movie files from my Mac to iTunes?" but when I follow the instructions, nothing happens.
In iTunes, in the left hand pane under Library, there are the usual categories starting with Music, Movies, TV shows etc but they are all empty except for "Books" which shows all the books that I want on my iPad. It is because the e-Books are there that I get really confused because it shows that somehow, the system seems to work.
Following the instructions that I have found when Googling I have tried all kinds of ways to move video files from my Mac to iTunes. I have tried doing a Drag & Drop from my desktop to "Movies" in the Library but nothing happened. I tried going to File - Add to library and then navigating to the correct file and then clicking "Continue" .... again, nothing happened.
I just don't know what else to try.
