    I have replied on your other thread.

    Have you checked in camera roll within Photos....if they are not there, they have either been deleted or not downloaded correctly.

    What pictures are you downloading and how?

    If you are syncing the pictures through iTunes, you need to understand what it is doing. It doesn't just copy them, it duplicates the folder, and if you remove the folder it duplicates the removal too. Any changes you make to the folder, or to the syncing selections in iTunes will also happen on the iPad with the next sync.

    To easily add more pictures to the iPad in the Photos app you'll want one folder that you select in iTunes, then some subfolders (one level down only) inside that folder. Each folder will become an album. When you want new photos just add the new photos to existing folders, or create a new folder for a new album and put the pictures in there.

    Here is some more information.

    If that doesn't do it try a search. This subject comes up a lot, so you can read all day about it if you want. :D

    Hi. I've got nothing to do with this (iTunes scares me!).

    I'm just posting to say that I've deleted the other thread you created, mwm, as it's a duplicate of this one. And, I've moved this post to the Help section ...

    Just so's no one is insulted/confused because their posts disappeared...

    I now return you back to your problem solving. :)

    Thanks for all the help. I appreciate it. I think I have figured out what is going on.
