Hi guys, I'll be the first to admit to not having a clue how these iPads work but, with a bit of luck, somebody out there will understand what I mean and will be able to tell me what to do next. Here is what I have ... An iPad 2, a Mac Mini Aluminium from mid 2010 and lots of films, reading books and audio books. Here's what I want to do ... Watch the films and either read or listen to the books on my iPad 2 WHILE NOT CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET OK, if I fire up iTunes on my Mac and click on "Movies" on the left hand side, I see all of my movies shown as an icon rather than any sort of text. If I click on it, it plays and that's fine for home use but I would like to be able to do the same thing while out and about. The tricky bit is that I need to click on "Music" to get to the audio books but I guess it makes sense in a way. The problem is that instead of being just a title, each audio book is broken down into 40 or 50 Chapters but I guess I can work round that. My iPad is synced to my Mac via the proper cable. So, what do I do next to fulfill my dream? Any questions, please ask. I only have a short window each day to work on this computer so please accept my apologies if I don't get back straight away. Cheers, Steve ps ... Having read all that, you must understand by now that I'm an idiot with only 3 or 4 working brain cells so please couch any replies in a like manner. Ta very much.
