    Hi,

    I converted my PDF files into .epub format, and now need to transfer them onto my iPad from my PC.

    I tried e-mailing them, but the iPad won't download them.
    I tried using the USB cable by dropping them into the DCIM folder, not working.

    How do you do that??
    Thx.

    I don't know the answer but can't you just drag it into iTunes and sync?

    I don't understand your suggestion :(

    I am trying to transfer files from a PC laptop, to my iPad. How can I 'drag it into iTunes', if the iPad doesn't let me even transfer it?

    I just copied this from another thread......

    "I drag epubs into iTunes from windows explorer and drop them on my library.

    Then I connect the iPad, highlight it in iTunes, go to books (across the top, not on the side) and check sync books, then hit sync."

    .......I hope that helps.....let us know if it doesn't.

    Thanks.

    If I get this right, I need to install iTunes onto my laptop PC first?

    Man Apple is killing me, nothing is more user-unfriendly than forcing users to download and install all kinds of nonsense just to be able to view a PDF !!!!!!!!!!!

    Is your iPad jail broken?

    No, I called 1800 Bail-Bonds and got it out of jail. As far as I know, the iPad as new and in original condition.

    Lol, I was just confused, to sync your iPad, to install iOS upgrades, etc, you need iTunes on your PC......I know some don't like the idea but basically it's just an interface. Once you are sync'd you won't need to connect it very often, it's really up to you from that point on but I am not aware of any other way to get an ePub onto your iPad. It will also back up your iPad so if the worst happens you can restore it.

    Thank you.

    I finished installing iTunes on my PC, and dropped the .epub file into "library".
    The epub file now appears in the "Books" category.

    I plugged the iPad into the PC, but I do not see "Sync Books" on either iPad and PC iTunes interface :(

    The iPad iTunes interface looks a lot different too. It offers: Music; Films; Ping; Podcasts, Audio Books, iTunes U; Downloads

    on the books tab. there are two options. add all new books, or add only selected. then on the bottom left.you'll find the option to apply. hit that one. it will then sync .
