    Hello guys! I'm happy to be a part of this forum. I just got my ipad2 a few days ago and I have been unable to drop it. Lol. It's so much fun. I do have a couple of questions though and I hope y'all can help me out! :)

    My iTunes store only has podcast, iTunes U and Downloads. I don't have the music, tv shows, movies, nor ping options. Pleaseeee what do i do?? I want to download music.


    Thanks while I wait for help.

    Work files to itunes

    I wish to transfer files from my desk top to iPad2. The files are PDF and some are video files. A mate said do you have iTunes and I do but its not that simple. Any help would be appreciated.

    Yes you will have to sync with iTunes to be able to put them on the iPad. You could maybe just email the PDF's, but to open them you will need an app, iBooks and Goodreader are good for this.

    There is an app called Dropbox that is great for transferring between devices also, so this might be good for you.

    Back to the OP.

    You can create a U.S. iTunes account (or some other country) and use that to purchase apps and media. You'll have to keep track of what you buy in each store, since they can only be updated with that account. If I understand right you'll need a U.S. address and and email address that looks U.S. (ending in .com most likely). Easy enough to obtain, and you'll probably want to create the account without a credit card. That can be done. You'll have to use iTunes Gift cards (virtual or real) to put money in the account.

    Creating an iTunes App Store account without a credit card

    I don't remember much more, since I've never had to do it; but a search of this forum and some Googling should fill in the details.
