    I am a newbie to apple but I found sugarsync to be a lot friendlier than dropbox for my ipad. I need help gettinga video into my photos so i can edit with reelDirector. I have moved my video into the ipad via sugarsyncs email...but haven't a clue how to get it inside the Photos icon. Can anyone help?

    You can download and play mp3, and probably a few other, formats in GoodReader. You can't transfer them to the iPod app. Nothing but iTunes can do that. So, nope, no magic there.

    You can use other third party music apps, and use Open In in GoodReader to move music files to those (though there are probably better ways). The only one I've used is OPlayer. It is handy for playing some formats the iPod app won't, but it's an otherwise mediocre app.

    Now, I said nothing but iTunes can put music on your iPad into the iPod app. That is not strictly true. There are third party computer programs that will do this. I'm not familiar with them, and you need to be careful how you set up iTunes, to avoid conflicts (because you still have to use it for some things). So be sure to do research if you decide to go that route.

    Do a few searches for posts by Peled. He operates this way, and has mentioned some programs and setups before.

    Where is the connect to Servers section?
    When I go into Settings and then slide down the left side to my apps section until I highlight GoodReader ... I get an option ( on the right ) to turn a button ON or OFF saying "Don't open anything". at the moment mine is turned OFF, is that suppose to be on?
