    I don't think the iPads Bluetooth radio is compatible. After reading your post I tried to see if my iPad 2 could see my ipod touch 4 generation and it could not. You'll also find that only a certain types of bluetooth head (ear) phones will work. Can't remember the type that does but I found that out through iTunes help files for iPad

    Yes, thats true but i think apple has to do something about this because if the applications such as 'bluetooth file transfer' is available on apps store & yet it dosnt find its own recognise device then its just nothing worth it for !

    I have not tested with the iPod, but most of the bluetooth transfer apps I've use between the iPhone and iPad do not require pairing. You just run the app on both devices at the same time.

    I can't find an app called "Bluetooth File Transfer". I was going to look it over, but there are too mant similarly named apps to make a good guess.

    The following gives you what blue tooth supports in iPad or similar devices.



    HSP - Headset Profile
    AD2P - Stereo audio streaming (iPhone OS 3.0 and above; iPhone 3G
    AVRCP - Media controls (Partial support since iPhone OS 3.0, improved in iOS 4.1; iPhone 3G and newer)

    The above also applies to the iPad

    Applications can also talk to other applications using the Game Kit for two player games, or to send data to compatible applications on other devices - generally a copy of themselves running on another device.

    Which app are you using? I've used Bluetooth Transfer and it worked fine. You cannot simply turn on Bluetooth and connect two devices, you have to run a file transfer program.

    Search for Bluetooth file transfer in the app store and see if anything looks like it's what you are looking for.

    Are both the iPod and iPad running the most current version of iOS? Is bluetooth turned on on both devices ( not paired, just on)?
