I've been using iTunes to sync to my iPad. Recently I tried to upload a radio show podcast programs in the MP3 format using iTunes as the target. Seems all I could get was the 10 seconds or so of the program intro - but no actual program info. So I downloaded the podcast to my Win7-64bit Desktop and was able to get that into iTunes. The podcast does show up in iTunes under 'Music' but will not sync to the iPod app on the iPad - it's as if Apple does not recognize the MP3 format??
Here is the URL for the radio show (actually quite interesting):
SSD - Computer Solutions with Jamey Mellis
Tomorrow I will be installing an alternative to iTunes (CopyTrans Manager) that allows drag/drop to the iPod/iPad thus bypassing iTunes. Hope that works.
Any thoughts as to way I can't sync directly to the iPad via iTunes?
