    An anyone explain how this is done. I find no editing menus in itunes or video. I can't even figure out where the download folder is. Does a user even have access to the guts of an ipad - file directory, program files, etc?

    Yes there is, the inside and the outside program.

    If you prefer using an inside program you can try to use iFile, although you have to have a jail broken device and download it through cydia or just install the .deb files from the computer.

    If you prefer using a desktop or laptop, you can try to use either iFun-box or iExplorer, your device doesn't have to be jail broken so that these programs can view/edit your files on the iPad.

    Both of them supply you with what you need, you can view and edit your file directory here.

    There is no downloading to the iPad as you would expect from using a desk top computer or laptop. The only download-like action that is available is the "Open In..." function - where you can choose to open a file in a compatible app. In addition, there is no central location for downloading to. One, because the iPad doesn't do downloads and t*o, because of the sand boxing function of the iOS.

    There is no central file system for apps (programs) to access so that you can open files. Each app has its own area - and it's not accessible to other apps.

    The only way to access the file directory or system files is to jail break the iPad. Then, you can install various tweaks (iFile is the best one) that will allow you to access the full file system.

    Sorry, but on a stock iPad, Apple has it pretty restricted, mainly for iOS security.
