    Ipad movies from an external drive

    I believe if you put them in iTunes, you can reimport them as you need. You should be able to drag and drop them inti iTunes on your computer. A better option might be to have iTunes sync with the folder automatically.

    Apple Posts First Black Friday Sale Details

    With every other chain store offering deep discounts on a variety of things, probably won't have to stand in long lines at the Apple Stores. If Apple has anything worth driving 20 miles for, I can make that the last stop of the day. Happy Holidays!

    Printing from my Ipad 2 directly to my Lexmark S405

    Transferring Photos from Camera Problems

    Editing PDF titles in iBooks

    A possible reason you get the previous title and not the new one from goodreader is because you didn't delete the file from iBooks first, before you did the "open in iBooks" with the new title from goodreader.
