While synching my iPad I noticed that I was missing an ep of a tv show; it was on the home pc, but not the iPad. Having never movied anything from pc to iPad, I watched the tutorial, which said select tab, select item, click apply, then sync. Itunes promptly erased ALL my videos, then plopped the missing file on the iPad, and inexplicably wiped all my books and music as well. Now I get the joy of adding all my files back onto the iPad.
I've re-watched the tutorial and I followed the instructions exactly. There seems to be no procedure for individual single files from pc to iPad; you have to erase everything, then copy everything back over. Which is nuts. So first a declaration, then a question.
In the week I've owned my iPad, I've learned to loathe iTunes. It strikes me as an incredibly stupid and inconvenient way to manage digital files.
Is there a way to move only a single file or group of files from pc to iPad, or is this SOP? Everything I've read (help, tutorials, user guide) talks bout from iPad to pc only.
