    Hello.

    I tried to send files from pc to ipad2 using bluetooth, Ipad claimed bluetooth is not supported, I tried itunes but could not figure out if it did.

    Will you please guide me to do so.

    Thanks.

    Run iTunes, plug your iPad in to your computer. Under the Apps section, the Apps that support file transfer are listed at the bottom of the page.

    OK, first off, what type of files are you trying to transfer?

    In iTunes, when your iDevice is connected, if you select the device, a series of tabs appear. One of them is the 'Apps' tab. If you scroll down, a list of the apps you have loaded on your iPad that you can Transfer files between your iPad and computer are listed.

    What types of files are you wanting to load onto your iPad?

    OK, 'files' on the iPad are application specific. There is no accessible file structure that corresponds a Windows environment.

    The method of getting files onto and off the iPad is best achieved using iTunes. Photos and iDevice compatible video should be relatively easy.

    Apps for playing non native Apple video format are plentiful. 'Documents To Go' is a good app for viewing and editing Office documents but there are others.

    These apps need to be loaded and resident on your iPad. Once they are, if you sync your iPad to iTunes, you can then transfer files from your host to your iPad on an application by application basis as described in previous posts.

    Hope this helps.

    See have you tried Dropbox? It's sort of like a cloud you can use with files and I use it to keep my Word Documents, Powerpoints, and Spreadsheets handy in case something comes up and I need them. I'm a business student and along with studying business I run my own business so I like to have my stuff in sync and this way I can record something on one device and within a few seconds they're all updated. Since this is relevant here is a link to their info page http://db.tt/MjWA6Li0

    For files it gives you options of choosing what compatible apps you want to open them with.

    You can connect it to your PC using the USB lead, you don't need a WIFI connection for that.

    You might like to try File Browser from the app store. I use it all the time for shifting stuff between my iPad and a W7 PC set up as an NFS where I use iTunes and Twonky for music, but many other programs for other things. Works great.
