    Why are my synced photos black & white?

    How do I determine that I am running the most recent version of iTunes? Does it not update itself? Also, please advise how I am pointing to any folder. All I can do is click on the sync function. For a 24 year user of IBM os I have always been at a loss how Apple handles files.;)

    Why are my synced photos black & white?

    The source of the photos is the "pictures" file on my Windows 7 laptop. They are jpg format. I used the sync process between my laptop and the iPad to move them. I emailed a photo to the iPad and saved it to Camera Roll as you suggested. It is there in all of its magnificent color. Thanks for...

    Why are my synced photos black & white?

    When I sync my photos from my IBM laptop to my iPad4 they are converted to black & white. What am I doing wrong? BTW, all photos and videos I take with the iPad camera are in color.

    What happened to this download?

    I downloaded the 4th season of "Justified" to my Windows 7 laptop. When I try to watch an episode the colors are terrible, almost like looking at a negitive. I am afraid to movie it to my iPad4. I have never had that happen before. Help please?

    What did I do?

    Apple Support straightened it out. One hour with a customer service rep and 30 minutes with a senior CSR and I am back. I have to buy, download & update everything from my computer but at least the iPad works now. Can you direct me to how to do this? Thanks, ttb

    What did I do?

    Is it possible to recover my password on the iPad w/o going to itunes on my computer? Surely I haven't stumped this crowd.

    What did I do?

    One thing I did not mention. After I left the iPad on the plane I went to an Apple store to change the password because it was stored on a file on the iPad. My mistake was to change it again because I could not remember the previous change by useing the security questions. I may have two Apple...

    What did I do?

    I have no idea what that was. It was too long ago. The apps show in the update screen and are on the iPad after I synced to the computer. Should that not be proof enough that I bought them? I have them, I just can't update them or buy new. I can't be the only one that has had this happen.

    What did I do?

    Is it possible for the iPad to sync to my laptop but have a different Apple id or password? They both have the same password (as of today) but the App Store will not let me in! How do I change the password on just the iPad?

    What did I do?

    Just restored my apps by moving them from my laptop. Still need advise on resetting the PW (can't access app store to update apps). Thanks in advance.

    What did I do?

    I left my iPad2 on an airplane (bub-by). Of course American Airlines did not find it. My fault, I left it there. I changed all of my passwords etc., took all day too.:p With that said, I bought a new iPad4. I synced it with my (non-Apple) laptop, ok so far. Now I can't access my purchased apps...

    color is distorted on iTunes movies

    I downloaded a movie from iTunes today to sync to my iPad2. I wanted to check the quality of the picture on my Dell 17" laptop once it loaded. The iTunes movies I have bought are ok for the iPad put not so much for a 17" screen. I was somewhat shocked that the color was distorted, kind of...

    How is the quality of your iTunes movies?

    Ok, my iPad2 does not the retina display but shouldn't a downloaded movie have at least the quality display of a DVD on a 730p screen? My movies look like they were received on a 1965 TV using a rabbit ear antenna. What's up with this?:thumbsdown: My avatar of the Belagio hotel ceiling is more...

    I need this..........

    When I got my iP2 I found a source here on the forum for a gel, plastic, silicone cover for the back of the iP2 that protects the back and lets the smart cover work too. I bought the semi-transparent cover so the Apple logo shows. I should have bought an opaque cover because the one I bought...

    I need this, where do I get it?

    I have a translucent silicone cover for the back of my iPad 2. It allows the use of the smart cover and access to all of the controls and ports. The amount of daily grime and stuff from constant travels will not clean off of it and looks really gross. I can use a stiff brush and hot water with...

    Protective cover

    I bought a semi-clear (translucent) plastic/vinyl cover for the back of my iPad2 a year ago and it has done a good job of protecting it from dings and Oh Oh's. But it had picked up dirt and grime from all the real world places I take it. I got the clear cover to be able to see the Apple logo and...

    Will try that. Thank you for the help. I have been a PC user since 1985 and am getting tired of apple's unwillingness to let me use my data when and where I please.

    sync my videos?

    I did look at all of the JPG images on the iTunes "Tom's iPad" in the column on the left of the screen.. They were not mixed in with them. When I look at my Camera Roll on the iPad2 they are there. The thumbs have the small video icon and length of the video under the image. I did upload them to...

    sync my videos?

    I did that, thanks. The photos imported from my laptop are in one file. The photos I have taken with the iPad are in another but the videos are no where to be found. I use the video recorder that came on the iPad2.

    sync my videos?

    Tried a search. After reading about 25 with no help here is the question: How do I sync (or move) my iPad2 videos that I recorded to my laptop (not Apple)? I have synced it several times with no luck. I have tried emailing them but the file is too large (at least that is what the error message...

    You think? That never happens on forums does it? Wish I could find a real viable method to do what is represented in the OP.

    iPad2 battery life!

    I do turn off app's I am not using but how do I reset it? I have a Verizon mobile wifi hot spot that's usually within 5' of the iPad at all times.
