    Hi everyone, Just got my iPad2 and am trying to work out how to get it to do what I want! We have 2 computers in our house, one mac and one pc (and now an iPad). All our photo's are on the mac which I would like on the iPad, but, my iPhone is synced to the pc. Is it possible to sync the iPad with the mac to get the photo's AND with the pc to get all my music and the apps I've already downloaded/paid for?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance :)

    Welcome to the forum.

    You should pick one computer to sync with and stick with it. Moving back and forth between computers is not easy, and will usually end up causing problems.

    The Mac is the better choice for syncing iOS devices. iTunes just works better on Macs. On the other hand it will be a lot easier to copy the photos to the PC than to copy the music to the Mac machine. Or you can use a third party photo manager to copy the photos and it won't matter what machine they are on.
