    New member likes iPad but fights with iTunes

    Had my iPad (4th gen 32 Gig) for two weeks and having lots of fun with it. It looks like it will be wonderful for one specific task I intend to put it to. And reading iBooks is more satisfactory than I ever expected.

    I've used iTunes with an iPod for years and have built up quite a library of music, podcasts and a few audio books. It transferred to the iPad just fine. However, when I signed up for iCloud on iTunes, my whole library disappeared. By the time I noticed it a few days later the only thing in my iTunes library were two apps and one book I had bought since activating iCloud. The rest was gone. I looked everywhere on my desktop computer and could not find a recent library. One dated 1/1/2013, yes, but nothing later than that.

    Of course, all the media files were still there, so I was able to rebuild the library, using the "add files" and "add folders" functions. As far as I've looked I think it's OK.

    But how could somebody who is not rather computer literate deal with this stupid situation? Blame it on a virus, I suppose.

    Good forum, just too much to look at every day.

    I can't imagine what could have happened. It didn't happen to me. I assume you are using iTunes 11, yes?
