    One of the options available when syncing your iPad to a PC is to transfer the contents of your iPad to the iTunes account on your PC. Select that option and you won't lose anything from your iPad. The transfer could take a while if you have a lot on your iPad, however.

    Thank you so books I have down loaded on to the iPad will go to the pc what about book marks that were synced with the old h/d can they be transferred to the new one? and finally what about the images that were transferred from the pc to the iPad , not the picture roll which I understand is images transferred from a camera or taken on the iPad. I need desperately to get the images that were synced with a file from the old h/d back on the new hd.

    Any photos currently on your iPad will be synced. Books and audiobooks will be synced. I don't know about bookmarks.
