    I had instructions, but I lost them, describing to enable file sharing between my PC and iPad wirelessly. I know there was a reference to map network drive and an ip address ending in 8081.

    Would someone direct me to those instructions?

    Would dropbox be a simpler way?

    Yeah, but it gripes me that I can't find what I already had. Of course you do have to have Internet up for dropbox, but I guess it would be rare to have wifi and no Internet.

    Ahhhh then heck with it--dropbox and vodka it is.

    I haven't used this but how about iStorage HD?

    Looks like it may do what you want.

    What kind of files are you looking to share?

    Cause you can connect to your PC wirelessly with Goodreader, Photo-Sort and iAnnotate, that I remember. Of course, each uses different methods, so knowing which file you want to share/see/transfer will help narrow it down.

    As in, I can give directions for the 3 mentioned above - but I don't want to shotgun-spread all the directions out in hopes of hitting the one you want...
