    you have to load the pics and songs and videos to the new pc from the last pc or wherever you have them, and sync them to the device.

    Thanks for replying

    So under any case if I lost data from old pc and got new pc I will not b able to copy data to the pc itself ( I can only take backup for iPad)

    But again once I synch the iPad with new iTunes blank library , data will be wiped from my iPad ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    I'm just beginning to think of how I could be in the same situation (computer crashes fully - hard drive failure). Now that I'm aware of what could happen - thanks for bringing this to my active thinking - I'm wondering if there really isn't some way to make an "ACTUAL" back up of what's on the pad.

    I have a Cydia back up application, but of course it just makes a list of what I've bought from there.

    So this is an interesting dilemma.

    People shouldn't consider data on the iPad as a backup copy. The iTunes on your computer is the main and it needs to have a real backup (like onto an external hard drive). People think I'm crazy when I buy three hard drives at a time... But it's times like these....
