    Hi, I managed to transfer mp3 files to the ipad2 using goodreader however I want to play these mp3 in the native IPOD App. When I try the "open in" button in goodreader it says "Can't open in other apps. No app able to handle this file type was found". From searching on the forum it seems that the native IPOD app is able to play mp3 files so can someone please help and tell me what am i doing wrong or if there is something else that needs to be done. tx

    As far as I know, and I may be wrong, the inbuilt Music or iPod apps are very particular about where they look for files and how they expect to see those files. They will not, again afaik, just accept a "raw" MP3 file. Though I would appreciate confirmation from someone perhaps a little more knowledgeable of the specifics.

    Welcome to the forum!

    You won't be able to play the file in the iPad's Music App. You will need to import it into iTunes on your computer and then sync it to your iPad. More here:
