    Dropbox

    I have a couple of media files in my dropbox folder on ipad that i have made favourites - so I should be able to watch them offline. However when I am not on the internet I cannot watch the files and get a 'unable to view files as no internet connection'. Even though I access them through the favourites folder. am I doing something wrong?

    Hi Jane--welcome to the forum!!

    I just deleted your other post as it was a duplicate of this one. Please do not do this since it makes it hard for other members to read and help you of there are multiple threads of the same topic present. It is also against forum rules.

    Thank you,

    Hi Jane!
    Did you mark the files as favourites on your iPad?
    I just tried the same. Obviously Dropbox syncs between devices - everything, except favourites. If you want to view them offline on your iPad, you'll have to make them favourites there.
