    Hi,

    I have loaded several photos onto my iPad directly from my camera. No problem there, but now I am wondering what will happen when I connect my iPad to my pc with iTunes since those photos our not in my iTuens library?

    You need to see that you are not enabling the Sync. I never use that "Mine- booby trap" called Sync. It is a total disaster waiting to happen on any one's Apple instrument be that iPhone, iPoD or iPAD .
    Need to move something to the iPAD....
    Use a copy paste from library to iPAD.

    That is solid advice. Only Apple could get away with calling this function "syncing" and get away with it.

    I first select the option "manually manage music and videos" under the "General" tab in Itunes when my device is connected to the PC. Then I go through each tab at the top "Apps, Music", etc. and make sure the sync option is turned off. This way I am in control of the content on my Ipad and not Itunes. It also means I don't have to wait for my device to sync every time I connect it.

    Dave, I love you! Thanks, So much. iTunes and myself are not friends by any stretch of the imagination.

    I love you too <grin>. That has also been my problem. iTunes Sync is driving me crazy. You've given us the answer as to how to go manual. Thanks very much.

    You know, I feel a lotta love on this forum.

    It seems to me that the OP was asking about going from IPAD to PC, pictures installed on the IPAD by camera .
    I don't think that picture sync IPAD to PC came as an automatic sync?
    I found the only way I got them there was to use the PC copy paste function, after having the IPAD become known in the PC's file system. (Win 7)
    Maybe I missed something?

    Thanks for the love :)

    The problem with Itunes syncing is that it is usually a one way sync. If you uploaded originally from Itunes and it is in your library everything is fine. If you get the media on your device by some other means (or from a different computer using Itunes) and you sync, it will remove said media from your device because it isn't in your library. For fun some time, try syncing your apps. If you downloaded them direct to your device (the normal way I would submit) and you haven't transferred the purchases, this apps will be deleted from your device because they aren't in your library.
