Access/move Mp3/avi Files From Dropbox?
I have a dropbox on my PC at home and am abroad for a few months with only my iPad. But i forgot to transfer music before i left. I have managed to get my flatmate to put some mp3's into my dropbox but i cant work out how to get them transferred to the iPod app.

Also it would be useful to be able to transfer avi files to the VLC or DivX apps.

Use MacDropAny, A Free Dropbox Add On Applet, To Sync Your Mac's Documents Folder?
I've posted this in a few threads recently and thought some might find it useful on its own. As a power user (see my signature) solving the file management and related workflow issues has been a seemingly endless quest. I think I've finally hit on a solution. It definitely works. It definitely is not free. And it definitely should be replaced by a baked in solution from Apple...perhaps in iOS5 and the related MobileMe revamp.

Here's what I do in the meantime...

A) Use Dropbox. Subscribe (and pay) for additional storage as needed.

B) Use MacDropAny, a free Dropbox add on applet, to sync your Mac's Documents folder to your Dropbox. This creates a two way, real time sync.

C) Use dropDAV to allow iWork apps to pull in files from Dropbox AND, critically, to save files back directly into Dropbox. This has been the elusive last piece of the puzzle and avoids the email-file-to-yourself dance.

So my files exist on my Mac for archival/back up, in the Dropbox app as needed on the iPad, and in the cloud. All sync'd in real time. Gives you some nice redundancy too.It ain't as smooth or pretty as it should be, but it works!I do think Apple is going to fix this. But until they do, this works just fine...And yes you might suggest replacing Dropbox with iDisk BUT iDisk is flaky, and requires the creation of a sym link in terminal to sync it with your Documents folder. Until iDisk works better, I can't recommend it for heavy lifting.

Files In Dropbox Transfer Via ITunes File Sharing
I used iTunes file sharing today for first time. Worked great with many Apps. But Dropbox didn't show up as an App in the list. Can one transfer files from Dropbox via iTunes or must you just use Dropbox on both the computer & the iPad? If I want to transfer files from Dropbox to my computer/mothership do I have to get "Goodreader" or something similar?

Synching Files With IWorks - Desktop File Sync Like Dropbox
I know we really know no specifics as to how files will be synched with iWorks on the iPad, but I'm just wondering how do you THINK it might work. Will it mainly be having the iPad connect as a remote server to your Mac or PC and you copy files over? Or (hopefully) there will be ways that this could be done via a cloud. I would imagine that MobileMe might would be allowed to do this but what about other services such as Dropbox or Google Docs? I wonder if Google Docs at anytime in the future will allow for desktop file sync like Dropbox does? I have a MobileMe account which is about to expire, but I've decided not to renew it because it is just not worth $99 (or a little cheaper at Amazon). But if it is the only way to do a cloud sync for iWorks on the iPad, I might would open it up again. Thoughts?

Unable To Load Images Anymore/version Of The Files Is Not Stored In Dropbox
I teach architectural history at a local university, and use .ppt presentations for my lectures.File sizes range from 20 MB to 45 MB.I store all of my files in Dropbox, since I am constantly switching between my MBP and the university's PCs in various classrooms and need to be able to save edited versions back to Dropbox.I have an iPad, and would love to use it for reviewing .ppt presentations before class (i.e, not to edit, just view).The problem is that, at about 20 MB or so, which is generally about half the file, images don't load anymore.The .ppt slides (and usually text) load, but about halfway through, no images.I've inquired on Apple Discussions, but no solution.Is there a maximum file size that I'm bumping up against? Solutions which involve me having to download onto the iPad via iTunes are not satisfactory, as that version of the file isn't stored in Dropbox, and won't have subsequent edits.

Move .mp4 Files To Without Sync
I synch my iPad with a desktop that has my iTunes library on an external drive. I'm currently on the road with my Macbook Pro and have some .mp4 work files that I'd like to view on my iPad. Is there a way to transfer them to the iPad without synching (since that wouldn't be good!)

Note that I also have the Camera Connection kit and am willing to buy 3rd party file management apps if relevant. Thx!

Possibility To Move Files Into Applications Without Sync
Basically I download a few TV shows via torrent files and I understand most of these wont work natively using the built in video app. They do seem to be supported by VLC for iPad though which is good news. I plan on jailbreaking my iPad so I can use something like iFile. I plan on using apps like Goodreader to download .torrent files and use the remote client for uTorrent to download the file on my Mac. When this file is downloaded I then plan on transferring it to the iPad (probably using GR again with wifi?) To get the file playable I would then need it inside the VLC app though, is it possible using a file manager like iFile or even Goodreader? to move a file into an applications folder then have it appear in the app without having to do a sync? If this is possible its a done deal I'll pick one up at the weekend. I just dont want to have to use the usb cable and itunes to drop files into vlc every time I want to watch something, if it can be done over a wifi transfer app then moved into the folder that would be fantastic!
