    Do you see a "Books" section appear in the upper left hand corner of the iTunes window. You may need to enable "Books" in the iTunes Preferences. It's in the first panel called "General" access from the iTunes menu choice called "Preferences". Once that is enabled, you'll be able to drag PDF documents on it...

    When i try and drag PDF files into my the books icon under devices on itunes a message says that it didnt copy the PDF because it wouldnt play on my ipad and when i try and drag it into the book icon in my itunes library nothing happens.I have also tried to add a pdf through itunes/file/add file to library but nothing happens also.

    Have you synced since you downloaded the iBooks update? Did you update to the latest iTunes? First update iTunes, then sync.... You will then be able to add PDF.....

    ok,i have updated to itunes 9.2,but it seems unstable as far as adding pdf files.
    There are some pdf files it wont let me add,but i have no problems adding them with other pdf apps.
    Some that i have added successfully took me several tries at dragging them to the library before they were added.
    Anyone else have seen this problem ??

    Stwange. In my limited experience, it accepted every PDF I tried (not many). You might want to look at GoodReader. It's excellent at handling PDF's and uses the app/sync feature to transfer the files. Plus, GoodReader allows you to organize PDF's in to a hierarchy. All that for $0.99...

    I have no idea what you are doing, but this is all really simple and works well. Perhaps you are dragging and dropping to the wrong spot...... just import them into iTunes, since you probably don't know how here is the step by step instructions. This is also the way you get music into iTunes.

    To get several files in at once, but them in one folder.

    Goto File/Add Folder to Library
    Locate the folder that contains the files you want to import
    Click "Select Folder" to point it to the folder that contains the files you want to import.
    You can check to be sure they were imported by selecting "recently added" in the play-list menu on the left.
    Plug in your iPad
    Go to the Books tab
    Be sure ether all books are being synced or that there are check marks by the PDF files you want to put on the iPad.
    Sync
    The PDF files are now in iBooks. In iBooks on your iPad goto Library. At the top left you will see two options... books and PDF's....... be sure and select PDF and you will see your PDF titles.

    If the above does not work then perhaps the PDF files are corrupt......
    -----------------------------------------------------

    Something else that will be of help to you is to spend some time learning how to use your products. Apple has how-to's, videos and faqs for their products.
