    Hi guys, I downloaded modern combat 2 on to a new laptop, not being aware of the fact that the iPad was synced to my older lap top, it would not let me sync without losing all the data, I reloaded it on my older lap top and now to sync to the older laptop it now says I will lose all data to re sync, does that make sense? Please forgive any ignorance here,

    To get that app on your iPad just go to the app store and "purchase" it...it will say you have already purchased it and will install it.

    That's only if you plug it in to iTunes.

    On the iPad tap the AppStore app. Search for Modern Combat 2. Click the buy button....as long as you are using the same iTunes account as on your computer it won't charge you again, even tho the button says the price on it.

    Thanks DG, got my syncing issue sorted, another question, the iPad won't open a lot of video attachments, it defaults to open in good reader, docs to go or PDF, plus another one I can't think of, but they don't open, any suggestions,
    ALH.
