    First of all a disclaimer: I don't have my I-Pad yet (still researching/saving up) but I had a discussion with a colleague about this very subject today.

    If I have it down correctly, I-Tunes will show an icon on your PC when the I-Pad is connected to your PC (either physically or via Bluetooth). Anything you drag to that folder (music, pictures, etc) will be copied to your I-Pad.

    The reverse therefore, should also be true, you can open the I-Pad icon and copy it to your PC.

    Now, with regard to synching, I would think it's like any other electronic device; you can set who wins, PC, I-Pad, or a push. Sounds like your PC is winning and deleting anything from your I-Pad that is not on your PC.

    Perhaps someone who actually has an I-Pad and a Windows 7 PC could chime in here ;)

    First of all, welcome to the forum!

    Second of all, and with all due respect, you should download the free iPad User Guide and spend some "quality time" reading it and before giving out any more mis-information about how it works. This will give you a much better understanding about how to get content to and from your iPad and your computer.

    I guess I'm confused, I have Windows 7 and have itunes on that computer. I have all of my music in itunes, 23G worth. I sync my iPad to my computer and my music is on my iPad. You have to have everything checked correctly in itunes but I don't understand, can it get any easier?

    This is just one of the reasons NOT to jailbreak because you are basically on your own. There is no warranty. There is no factory support. If it does not work as promised, there is no one to complain to and you are SOL. Sorry!

    I just don't understand why to jail break, I look forward to updates and I'm really looking forward to 4.2. I don't want to screw that up. So many that JB complain about music, contacts not working, mine works great without any of that. I guess I just don't understand what every one gets from JB.

    I can understand the need to tinker and perfect, to put one's mark on something. In this case one would need special skills which I don't have. Like a good friend on another forum said:"Don't ask me to Jail Break it, I like it because it's shinyyyy!":D

    There is an option in iTunes settings to sync apps between your computer and the iPad. Make sure it's not selected. I suspect you have it checked and then, since the apps don't exist on your PC, it wants to remove them from your iPad.

    Just a thought.
