    I recently purchased a disc from a wood working magazine that has all of their back issues on it in pdf format. I would like to be able to add all of the files to my iPad so I can read the magazines when I don't have access to a pc to read the disc.

    Is it possible to get all of the pdfs to my iPad and if so how do I accomplish this?

    Thanks in advance,
    Grant

    if you don't have access to a PC, it's going to be near impossible to get the PDF's to your iPad. If you have a PC, you could use something like Drop Box, which is a free app or Mobile Me, which you have to purchase.

    With Drop Box, you would simply drag and drop the PDF's from the CD to the Drop Box folder on the PC. When you turn on your iPad, with Drop Box installed, the PDF's will automatically appear in Drop Box on the iPad.... this is assuming you have internet access with the PC and iPad.

    Your going to have to get that disk to a computer. But when you do, just drag and drop the PDFs to the books section of iTunes, and sync. iBooks now reads PDFs after the up dare a week or so ago.

    Well, you will need the have the PDFs already on your iPad or an access to the internet with a link to your PDF files. But you can drag them on the Library section on iTunes and they will be transferred automatically to the iBooks section. Then press Sync to transfer the PDFs to your iPad.

    Yes, you can do what you want to do, buy just dragging the pdf to "Books" section of iTunes.

    You will end up seeing them in the iBooks app under the "PDFs" tab.

    I have been using the Cloudreader app, but with the update of the iBooks app, I no longer use Cloudreader, iBooks meets my needs just fine.

    Hope this helps.

    Email them to yourself as attachments them open them up in ibooks. That's worked fine for me for several PDF's.

    Thanks Duke, I will give this a try tonight when I get home.

    Samurai, I would do that but there are over 400 pdf files on the disc.

    What I don't like about iBooks for PDFs is that you can't pinch to zoom. Text in magazines is often too small for me to read, especially on the iPad.

    My solution is Goodreader and Dropbox. Goodreader is super fast and the benefits go beyond just reading PDFs. And it's only $0.99.
