Books Not Showing Up After Sync In IBook

Whenever I sync books from my MacBook pro to either my iPad or iPhone 4 the books do not show up in iBooks and iTunes says that they are there. I have tried everything and the only thing that seems to work is installing a new book from the book store, but I currently don't have wifi so I can't on my wifi only iPad.

Books Not Available On IBook?
When will the selection of books on iBooks get better? There are many titles that just are not available, but are if I choose to use another reader. I am not talking about obscure books. I enjoy reading from the iBook application, but it doesn't matter if the books are not available.

Books In IBook Got Disappeared?
I had downloaded about a dozen of books from the free iBooks catalog but today they are all gone. That includes the Winnie the Pooh and iPad user guide. Does anyone know why this happened. I hesitate to use iBooks now until I find out if they are going to disappear on a regular basis.

Publishing Books Via Ibook?
Is it possible for an author to publish a book via ibooks, Apple book store, and then publish updates to that book say when new information is available or when errors are corrected? The purchaser should not have to pay for such updates of course.

IBook Failed To Load Other Books
I keep getting "Failed to load book because requested resource is missing." I am running 4.2 beta 3. Out of 6 books, only 1 will open. I found a couple discussions elsewhere, but I cant seem to get these other books to open. I just redownloaded the books themselves and iBooks. I did not do a restore of the iPad, I'd like to avoid doing that if I can.

Cannot Save PDFs Or Books To IBook
I have an iPad 2 and my OS software is up todate. I can no longer save PDFs or Books from iTunes Store to iBooks. When I try to save a book from the store, I get a message that says that I must have iBooks installed. iBooks is installed on my iPad. I have tons of books and PDFs and I can opener my PDFs and books in iBooks without any problems.

Also, iBooks does not show up in the "Save To" drop down menu in my email. Is anyone else having this problem. If so, is there a solution? The problem just started 2 days ago.

IBook Not Showing Pdf Files?
Previously I have a switch button on iBook for Books and PDF. if I select Books then all my ePub will be displayed on the shelf and when I select PDF then all my PDF will be shown on the shelf.

Macbook Crash - How To Get My Books Back Out Of Ibook
I bought a new Macbook Pro because my old one crashed. I had my documents backed up on another drive but not with Time Machine and my iPad was backed up also but on my Mac. I was able to use some software to get my music back but I can't figure out how to get my books back out of ibook. Have anyone ever have this problem? From what I see there is nothing to help you get your iPad back into itunes and syncing properly if your computer crashes, I know I should have been using time machine but even if I had what if the disk drive became corrupt? I know there is a slim chance that it will ever happen but I am one of those people where what ever can go wrong...

Unable To Sort Books Alphabetically After Sync - Books Rearranges Randomly
I have about 25 books and PDF's in my iTunes library which are sorted alphabetically in iTunes. However when I sync these books to iBooks on my iPad they appear in random alphabetical order on the iBooks bookshelf.

Sync Pdf To IBook?
I used to convert my pdf to epub and sync all my book to iBook without problem.But I guess everyone knwos that some of the book is not readable after the convertion.So I heard that the latest iTunes supports sync-ing PDF directly to iBook. I can successfully add my PDF file to iTunes, but after several sync, I still cannot see my PDF file on my iPad...

Won't Sync With IBook G4?

When I brought my shiny new iPad home on Saturday, I plugged it into my iBook's USB port and was disappointed (but not shocked) to get a popup in iTunes 9.1 telling me that I couldn't sync the iPad since it required OSX 10.5.8 (I had 10.4.11 installed). In order to get my hands into the iPad, I decided to register/sync it on my work PC (a 10 minute bike ride away).

No problems; been using my iPad fine ever since. However, I'd still like to be able to sync it at home, so that I can add some media content to it.

So last night I installed 10.5 and also updated my iBook to 10.5.8 (along with all other system updates available through "system update").


Even with 10.5.8 installed, the iPad will still not sync on my home iBook. When I plug it in, the iPad beeps but indicates that it isn't charging, and the iBook loads iPhoto and attempts to sync the iPad as a camera (I have a handful of wallpapers I DLed on the iPad).

Things I have tried:verified that there are no iTunes updates available
turned off "automatically open iPhoto when camera is connected" in the iPhoto general preferences
manual restart of iPad (holding power and home buttons for a couple of seconds)
Re-authorized the iBook for my iTunes account.
Using my other USB port.

So the issue is that even though my computer/iTunes recognized that I'd connected an iPad when I first tried it out of the box (under 10.4.11 and iTunes 9.1), now that I've updated to 10.5.8, I can't get iTunes to recognize that the iPad has been connected at all.

I also don't understand the lack of charging; apparently the iPad thinks I don't have a USB 2.0 port (even though when I bought the iBook G4, it claimed to have USB 2.0 -- and according to the specs, it should:

Thoughts would be appreciated.

Cannot Manually Sync Music & Auto Sync Books
Would like to know if anyone else has noticed this little foible.Set books to Syc/All Books and don't check manually manage music and videos. Books will sync but sometimes (and can't figure out what causes the change) the selection changes from all books to selected booksOddity number 2. Check manually manage music and videos. Sync then manually drag/drop an album to the iPad. Go to the Books tab and the check box is removed from Sync.Seems you can't manually manage music and have it auto sync books.

Can't Both Sync Music Manually And Sync Books
In iTunes I can tick manually sync music but cannot simultaneously tick Sync Books. When I do I Get a warning message that says movies and music will be removed.I don't understand how they are related. Why does syncing books disable the ability to manually manage music? Because of this I cannot both sync books and leave just a few albums (and not all of an artists albums) on my ipad.This seems limiting or I'm just not understanding some aspect of this whole syncing thing.

Books Lost After Sync?
I try to add a new book in my Ipad and lost almost all the rest I had previously. Strangely they show on my itunes but after syncing the bunch of books I had won't show anymore. Just few of them and the two new ones I added. I tried few times, I've checked all the possible options but without result. I just got the new itunes but I have no idea if this could be the problem. Unfortunately I don't have those books anymore in my pc.

Have Books Sync Without Erasing Music?
I had my iPad 2 set to sync eBooks automatically, and just found (when I added a new book) today that it's no longer set to that. No problem, I can drag-and-drop to sync manually, but it's one step more than I'd like to do - it would be great to just have any new eBooks automatically transfer to my iPad. The problem is that when I check the "Sync Books" box, iTunes warns me:"Are you sure you want to sync books? All existing songs, movies and TV shows on the iPad... will be removed."As it turns out, this warning rings true - I went to sync my eBooks to my iPhone the other day and all my music was deleted! Leaving aside the question of why syncing books should delete my music, I'm wondering if there's any way to manually manage my music while keeping books and other things on automatic sync.

Cancelled Sync And Lost Most Music And Books
I use an iPad as my main computer, and used public computers to set it up. My wife has a lap top, so I decided to sync to iTunes on it so I could delete some music. I sync'd partway, and cancelled because it was taking a long time. All my music was deleted on the iPad and didn't show up on iTunes except for the first album. The same thing happened with my books. Is there anyway to retrieve or redownload my content without repaying the $300+ dollars?

Sync Smart Playlists Of Books/pdfs ?
In iTunes, I have created a smart playlist of pdfs, and want to sync this to my iPad so that it appears in the iBooks app.

When I'm syncing, the smart playlist does not appear under the Music tab - I expected this, because the smart playlist has set the Kind to Contains pdf, and the Options to select Book from the Media Kind menu. Consequently, it's not a Music smart playlist, and logically should not appear there, and it doesn't. So far, so good.

However, it does not appear under the Books tab either. Consequently, there is no checkbox for me to select, and therefore I cannot apply the instruction to sync it.

Does anyone know whether it is in fact possible to sync such smart playlists (of pdfs/books) to an iPad? An article in Macworld said that it was, but gave no details as to the actual syncing process.

ITunes Will Not Sync Books Back To IPad 2
For some reason, all my books were gone from ibooks one day. (Perhaps I updated the app and it lost the books??) I can see all the books in itunes; but, even if I select "synch all books" and click on the synch button, none of the books or PDFs are reloaded into ibooks.

So, I have two questions:
1. Does ibooks lose books often?(i.e. every time the app is updated?)
2.Why won't itunes load the books back to the ipad?

ITunes Doesn't Showing Up While Sync?
I was running OS 10.4.11 on my laptop when I first tried to sync my new iPad. Got a message that it couldn't be done with that system. I upgraded to OS 10.5.1 and then updated it to 10.5.8. I downloaded and installed all the software upgrades that were recommended. Then I downloaded several apps for the iPad from the iTunes Store. I connected the iPad to the laptop and nothing -- the iPad doesn't show up in the iTunes list.

I tried charging the iPad, restarting it, resetting it, restarting the laptop, using a different USB port -- all to no avail. Any other suggestions?
