    Another problem after the restoreof my pc. My books that were use to be on my ipad before I restore my pc doesnt sync anymore.
    Everything is checked. I check the "Sync Books" option, I check " Selected books" but when I sync them only the books I got from iBook store syncs to the Ipad. The rest were left behind. Did I miss something???? Help!!!!!:confused:

    Don't panic - if nothing else, wait for the poet...you know he always has an answer to these problems. Just wait and see and don't do anything that you might later regret. He'll be around any moment now....

    I'm not sure how much help I can be because a lot of my books are on my external hard drive to prevent this from happening! Have you gone into the iBooks store section and looked for records of your downloaded books. I'm sure he said you should find them there, I'll go and look and hope Twerppoet has come back.

    Yes, there is a button called purchases and it has got all your books registered there so if anything goes wrong a screen shot of your purchases will prove you've still got them. Don't know if this helps but don't panic! Most of the problems are solved. I'll keep looking for you Joy.

    Oh, I just noticed it's not iBooks books but others!

    Where were these books Joy? In an app, or in iBooks? Are they PDF's. I need more info?

    Have you done a hard reset where you press home and top button together until it ask if you wish to close, then when it's off, press both again until apple logo appears.

    Why on earth someone needs to sync books ??
    You should keep your books on a computer, and just copy them to the iPad's iBook application.

    Just give me One single benefit for doing so.
    I have 150 Books and similar number of magazines.
    I copy them freely from Computer to iPad (through iTunes) and also the other way around (with "iMacsoft iPad to PC Transfer")

    These books are mostly in PDF's and epub files. When I restored my itunes library I didnt see them except for the ones I got from ibook store. So , What I did was open my itunes library point to books drag and drop all these files to books(just what I did before). Then click on my Ipad went to books tab check on the Sync book options, check selected books then sync. It should be on my ipad right. but Nope, they wont sync! i kept trying over and over again.:confused:

    Joy! How are you going with those books. Did you have backup of those books somewhere for just this sort of emergency!

    I wonder if you are on this 4.3.3 update, I know it's for this tracking stuff but it's interesting it's happening to you now! Sorry! If I'm repeating myself I can't see the rest of the thread in this section.

    Oh, thank you for the Mothers Day greeting but I think that's the American date, I live in UK and we celebrated at the beginning of April. But I will still take it, thank you!

    I do not understand. see what I have and what I do.
    I got Windows.
    I have a folder loaded with ePub books.

    Here what you need to do:
    1. Open iTunes.
    2. Connect the iPad
    3. Open The ePub Folder with any file manager ou like.
    4. Select some books with the mouse.
    5. Drag the selected books into the iTunes Book area.
    6. Books are being copied (It is actually the pointer being defined)
    7. See all the selected books in the iTunes Library part
    8. Select all iBooks in the iTunes Library and drag then to the Device area to the Books location.
    Job done. All iBooks on the iPad.

    No Sync. No nothing.
    Same thing with PDF files (Magazines)
    Never ever mark the sync sign for books on the iTunes

    I do that exactly! I wonder why Joy is having these problems though? She hasn't had this before, I think.

    That's what I did Peled, that's the problem. I don't have this problem before. I had been doing fine till I restored the itunes library.
    Also, I drag and drop it to Stanza . Every book appeared on Stanza. So, it could be the ibook app right. BUT, I already deleted and reinstalled the ibook app from both my ipad and itunes. and yet, problem persist.

    Any other solution people?

    Oh, heck, Joy I feel so helpless! I'm surprised TwerpPoet hasn't been on yet, he's the king of books in my eyes? Please don't lose hope! Just keep this thread alive and someone will notice! Have you tried the books threads on search. I know it's tedious but there has got to be someone who has the same problem!

    Can you try doing that procedure on another computer with another iTunes.
    You can try any iTunes since you do not sync anyway.
    It may be the iTunes fault
