    I have just re installed iTunes onto a new pc and I am trying to add back onto iTunes the content of my ipad.
    95% of my ipad content is no longer on my iTunes.
    How do I do it? I have found programs on the net to transfer but are only giving me a trial version and want me to pay £25.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    If you still have the computer you used before, transfer your iTunes library to the new one:

    So the old PC is gone.
    iTunes can't transfer some of your content to a computer: music imported from a CD, photos synced to your iPad, books, movies and TV shows from other sources than Apple. If you didn't keep your iTunes library from your old computer, you'll need software to extract these and get them to your PC - the progammes you mentioned before. There's no other (free) way to get them there.

    I've moved this discussion to a thread of it's own as it was hijacking an existing thread.
