    Angry Newbie needs help with iTunes - going bonkers!

    Hello everyone,

    I am trying to add music from iTunes on my PC to my iPad.

    I connected my iPad to my PC and opened iTunes. I checked the songs I wanted to download and proceeded to sync them. I see the "sync in process" files being transferred. The titles appear on the PC under the iPad section but they do not appear on my iPad.

    Can anyone help a Dum-Dum and tell me what I'm doing wrong.

    Thank you so very much!

    Mike in Gilbert, Arizona

    I've encountered this before. What I did was to select the albums/songs I wanted to copy over from the right side, then drag-and-dropped them over onto the device in the left-hand side - I don't fuss around with trying to 'sync’ it anymore.

    That is a very good idea. I have never tried that.

    I've also had this. What I discovered was the files were actually there. Disconnect from pc, exit iPod and go back in. Songs magically there.

    I thank you for trying to help me.

    Where would I find the transferred music on my iPad?

    It's on the iPod app, should be in the dock at the bottom of the home screen maybe.

    I do the same with iPod as well - drag-and-drop the files I need from iTunes onto the device.
