I'm very pleased to have found this forum. From what I've read, there appears to be many knowledgeable users here. I've had my iPad for about 8 months, and would have serious withdrawal pains if it were to disappear! The iPad is a great device, although the file transfer capabilities leave much to be desired. The iTunes software seems to be primitive compared to other Apple software. I have one problem that hopefully, someone can assist me with. I've downloaded several MP3 songs to my iPad without problem. I recently tried putting the same songs on my iPhone 3G, and I get an error message saying that iTunes can't find the original file, thus, it couldn't load them. This puzzled me since I have not changed the location of the songs since putting them on the iPad. Then, I tried to locate the songs on my PC, and they are nowhere to be found! The only change that I can think of is that I downloaded a newer version of iTunes between loading the iPad and the iPhone. If this makes sense to anyone, I'd really appreciate your help. Thanks in advance..
