    Help please. When I sync my I pad with laptop some of the photos within a folder do not appear on I pad. For instance one of the folders has about 76 photos and only 45 have been moved. I have not checked other folders to see if the same thing happens. Am I doing something wrong?

    Hello - please provide some additional information: 1) iPad model & iOS installed; and 2) Laptop brand/model & operating system? I'm assuming that you are syncing w/ iTunes on a Windows or Mac laptop - is iTunes updated to the newest version?

    Also, provide the settings you use for photo sync in iTunes which can affect the behavior of this exchange. The native iPad Photo App is frustrating to use and many simply find other ways to transfer their images - so I'll let you provide the information requested, but in the meantime, take a look at PhotoSync - an app is on your iPad & one on your laptop - transfers are wirelessly and provides much better control over what you REALLY want to do - there are other options. Dave :)

    I have now downloaded photosync to my I pad thank you but have encountered another problem. I can' t get my I Tunes to start up on my laptop that I can download it there. Nothing seems to do what I want!

    Hi again and 'Oh My' - seems like multiple different issues here? You need the PhotoSync apps on both your iPad and also your laptop (Windows version HERE) - it is a separate app from iTunes so should just install on your Windows machine once downloaded - sorry, but I've not done Windows in two years. SO, see if you can at least get the program onto your laptop - using iTunes is not needed.

    You'll have to explain more about this different issue - reboot your laptop and see if your iTunes and BBC player issues are resolved; if not, then tell us if your Windows laptop has been 'misbehaving' in other ways? This is not a Windows forum, so you might have to seek help elsewhere? When I was on PCs, the forum that I often frequented was CyberTechHelp - let me stop and give you a chance to respond. Dave :)

    Thank you for quick reply Dave
    I have tried to download photosync on my laptop but it says I have to open I tunes. The alternative is to open it with Google play store but it says the play store app does not work with I pad so does that mean it would not work in conjunction with the app I have downloaded on my I pad? This is very confusing to my elderly mind!

    I am going to bed now maybe in the morning my mind will be refreshed! Thank you for your patience and I will address the other issue later

    Well, have a good night's sleep and try again in the morning - I have the PhotoSync app on my MBPro and cannot remember if I had to open iTunes to install - you might want to check their website to see if the Windows version behaves differently?

    But let's see what happens after you reboot your laptop - may be a number of unrelated issues occurring? Dave :)
