    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad


    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Apple - Support - Manuals

    Please read the rules too!!

    Hello Tim,
    I'm quoting you because I could find no facility to post on the page for new member introductions. Please tell me where "Reply to Thread" or "Post New Thread" or "Search Threads" may be found. I'd very much appreciate it.

    I have a love/hate relationship with my iPad 2. I can not EVER move things FROM my iPad TO my PC. When I attempt the Sync, it inevitably wants to wipe out everything I've labored to load on it thus far. All I really would like to accomplish is to consolidate my music libraries on my iPad. As it is, I have iPad library, office PC library, and home shop library. No matter what, if I want to sync, I have to take an iPad data hit. iBooks, apps, photos, it frustrates the he'll out of me. The iPad manual is worthless as a screen door on a submarine. I love the user interface and speed and graphics (and damnit yes, Angry Birds), but could their paranoia over someone, somewhere, getting a free song, have made it any harder to move my own stuff, around my own machines? I Think NOT!
    I'd like to wipe my iTunes account and start over, but, the Apple gods seriously (SERIOUSLY) do not like that. Been there. Ugly indeed.
    Where do I start? How do I unravel the "mysteries that should not be" around the crazy, redundant pirating safeguards that Apple is so obsessed with?
    Thanks very much,
    Gary

    It's probably best to post your iTunes problems in the Forum's Help section as there are some serious iTunes experts lurking there......most members don't frequent the New Members section too often...OK if you want to post...




    If you have a specific problem, then you can either post a question or use the Search button near the top of the Forum web page.

    If you want to post a problem, you’ll probably want to either append your question to an existing thread if your problem is related to the topic being discussed in that thread, or start a new discussion (thread). To do that, you need to navigate back to the ‘iPad Forum’ page (button near the top of the Forum web page), then choose a discussion area that you think most suits the problem you want to discuss - say ‘iPad DiY’, click to enter that area and then you’ll see a button ‘Start New Thread’. You can click on that and enter a title for your thread and the usual text box where you can type the details of your problem.

    It makes sense to use a thread title that’s as descriptive as possible. So I wouldn’t call a thread ‘I have a problem’ because no one scanning through the thread will know what the problem is or whether they can help and, since there are so many posts made each day, no one has time to read them all.

    So, instead, make the title of the thread as specific as possible - ‘iPad screen goes blank every 5 seconds’, for example would be better (though not as good as it could be, I have to admit) and then give as much detail of the problem as you can.

    But don’t be afraid to post - all the Forum members are really nice and the Moderators keep them under control and make sure they’re well behaved and polite - well, most of the time!!

    But just enjoy your iPad. Like any new product, they'll be 'issues' that will arise - first piece of advice, don't panic and don't do anything rash. I've read of people who have restored their iPads - generally a last resort - when the problem was far far simpler.

    Gary, see my answer to your same question on another post here:

    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-help/30076-sorry-about-introductory-rant.html#post215986

    FWIW your frustration with music files isn't Apple-centric, it's a combination of cross-platform compatibility and compliance with rules and regs set up by the recording industry. There are a number of ways to do what you want, but they are not elegant and, again, really have nothing to do with Apple or Microsoft directly.

    The good news of sorts is that in the next 30 days or so it's pretty clear Apple will have a solution that will allow you to store all of your music, no matter the origin, in "the cloud" and have access to it on any computer or mobile device; Mac, PC, iPad, etc. Both Amazon and Google have a head start in the field but I'm betting Apple's take on things will make their offerings a little less desirable. Hang in there! :)
