    can someone help please. I have sync'ed my ipad with my macbook itunes and it looked like the sync was successful. when i opened itunes in my ipad, i can't see my music files that I thought have been copied across. when i open itunes in my ipad it just shows me available musics/songs for purchase.

    This is one of the confusing parts...

    On your PC, iTunes is where you purschase AND play your music, but on your iPad, you purchase your musc with the iTunes app, but PLAY your music with the iPod app!

    When you get some time, I suggest you download a copy of the iPad User Guide. It is available for free in several different formats.

    a) As a free PDF download from the Apple website --

    Apple - Support - Manuals

    [​IMG]

    This can (and should!) be saved on your computer and your iPad.

    b) As a free iBook once you download the free iBook app from the iTunes App Store.

    c) Online using the link provided in the Safari favorites on your iPad.

    The answers to many questions, especially if this is your first Apple mobile "iDevice", can be answered by spending some quality time with this handy document.

    I've read the guide, followed every instruction I could find on syncing from my comp to my iPad, but after doing it, I don't see my music library on the iPad. Where is it?

    Just look at the picture. Focus on the icons.

    Nice illustration Biobunny. This solution is correct, but in case this carefully illustrated screenshot seems a little cryptic, I had the same problem before this was posted. I finally found the same solution: The icon labeled "iTunes" and the icon labeled "Music" are two DIFFERENT apps. 'iTunes' is the Store and the one labeled 'Music' is where your music is accessed. It's one of those things that seem (almost) obvious AFTER you already know the difference.

    The music app is also where you go to find your audio books and podcasts.
