    Hi everybody,
    I just installed the filebrowser app, hoping to be able to transfer files to/from my PCs.
    I had no problems copying files from both my PCs (one linux, one Win), but I cannot understand how to put Ipad files on them: I can only create folders - so I know that it isnt a write-access problem by the way.

    Any ideas?

    Which file browser app are you referring to? Are you using GoodReader?

    As far as I'm aware this app can only download files from your PC to your iPad; it cannot upload files from your iPad to your PC except by emailing them.

    FileBrowser can copy files and nested folders between the iPad and remote computers / NAS drives in BOTH directions . It can also pass files to other apps and receive them in return using the 'Open In' method.

    However, apps are not allowed to access files outside their own private area so FileBrowser is not able to generally browse the iPad file system.

    So for example you copy a from a server, pass it to another app such as Documents to Go for editing, and then save the modified file back to the remote server using FileBrowser. You could also pass an email attachment to FileBrowser on your iPad and save to a NAS. These are just a couple of examples but should give you the idea.
