    Exclamation Sync Ipad 2 files with MS pc without iTunes

    Hi,

    How do I sync Ipad 2 with a MS pc (both ways) without Itunes. I canīt install Itunes, Dropbox or Goodreader because of company policy, but I need to sync files between Ipad 2 and my work pc.

    The best solution has been to make Ipad 2 appear as an external harddrive through USB connection.

    As the Ipad is company asset, a jailbreak is not an option.

    Need tips. Please respond.

    Ipad2user.

    You can't. If the iPad is a company asset then why they don't allow you to install ITunes?

    Edit: If you cannot install apps on the iPad, then it is not possible to sync files, other then by sending emails.

    If you could install Goodreader, then a data transfer would be possible, as you can setup Goodreader as a network drive, so it shows up as a harddrive on your computer.


    On Windows 7, this can be done as followed. (Instead of browsing to the folder, add the IP address Goodreader shows when you open Wifi-Transfer)

    On Mac, instructions can be found here:
    www.goodreader.net/gr-man-tr-wifi-mac.html

    2) To initialize the data transfer, open Goodreader and click on the wifi symbol at the bottom to start Wifi-Sync. Than just do the rest from your computer. You can copy files/folders directly into the Goodreader subdirectory, as it behaves just like a thumb drive.

    Have to agree. Seems like a half hearted company rollout if they provide the devices without the capability to sync to work PC's, unless their policy is no syncing in which case you shouldn't be putting files on it...

    In your case, you should not use the term "SYNC" . It is "COPY" you need using, and for that there are lots of 3rd party Apps.
    One important thing is missing here.
    It is what kind of files.
    Is it DOCx, Is it Excel ? Maybe PowerPoint...
    Each one has a better tuned App for it
    Think before you Sync Since you may Sink

    Update

    I can install apps on the iPad. The problem is the ms pc and corporate policy there. iPad is not an approved tool for employees in the vi company, just for me and some other persones. This is not a full roll out.

    Files that needs to be copied or sync is docs, excel sheets, ppts etc.

    PS! The ms pc has Microsoft xp.

    So you could install Goodreader on the iPad and then use the above linked instructions to add Goodreader as a network drive to the computer, so that you can add/remove files, as if it where a flash drive.
