Ok, I've managed to get it into iTunes but when I try to sync it to ipad I get a message telling me I am not authorised to do this on this computer!
BTW, if I hadn't been given the ipad as an Xmas pressie I can assure you I WOULD get a windows tablet like you suggested! unfortunately I am stuck with this thing & so am attempting to find some uses for it! So I'm sorry about asking so many questions about seemingly simple things ( simple to you guys!)
Hmm....is that the same computer you used to setup your iPad? Do you back up to that PC? I only use one PC to interface with my iPad...it seems to work best that way. The last time I connected my iPad to another computer and opened iTunes it wreaked havoc on my iPad. It's ok until you open iTunes on a strange computer. Then, BANG!
