    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.

    Here is the link: Apple - Support - Manuals

    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?
