I have authorised my computer for use with the IPad and Itunes. When I synced the IPad all of my apps dissapeared from the IPad and have not shown up on the computer. It is as if the IPad had reset itself when it synced with the computer.
I just updated my iPad to 5.1.1 and iBooks to 2.1.1. After updating and synching to my iMac, I opened a book that I had purchased one month ago and had been reading. All the text had disappeared. I had nothing but blank pages except for the title page and the table of contents. I went to purchased to try to download it again but the "purchased" tab was grayed out. I couldn't find a way to activate it. I tried resetting by holding in the sleep and on/off buttons for 10 - 15 seconds but it didn't change anything. I tried re-synching with my iMac -- my books are backed up on it -- but that didn't restore the text either.
Info: 20" Intel iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11), Work computer: 17" Intel iMac
With an exception of two all of my books have disappeared from my ibooks book shelf! I can access my account and see those that I have purchased and would like to know if there an easy way to retrieve them?
Info: MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.4), Also have iPad with iOS 5.1.1

IPad 2 :: IBooks - When Finished Reading A Page The Toolbar At The Top Has Disappeared
Apr 28, 2012
I find iBooks very useful for storing not only my books but also my PDF files containing recipes, knitting patterns, etc. Only problem is that when I have finished reading a page, the toolbar at the top has disappeared and, even if I tap that area, my Collections option does not always appear.
Using Previously Purchased Epubs On IBooks - Cover Pictures
Apr 24, 2010
I finally got my iPad (insert clapping sound) and I have been converting my current ebook library over to epub and to iBooks, which I find very graphically pleasing. I guess this is one of the reasons I love Apple, their attention to detail, so I would like to use iBooks as much as possible, and I don't mind going through some trouble to be able to visually pick a book (or eventually my notes) from by iBooks Library.
IPad Mini :: Wiped All Data - Purchased EBooks On IBooks Gone?
Sep 3, 2014
Here's the deal: I bought some ebooks on iBooks and I did NOT backed up them in iCloud (at least not by myself). Yesterday I wiped out all data in my iPad mini, I reset and deleted all data.
Then I downloaded all my apps and music again, but when I tried to download my books... well, they're gone. FROM THE "PURCHASED" TAB. So I tried to search for the books, one by one, and download them that way. But they appear as NOT PURCHASED. They are asking me to purchase them AGAIN.
I tried to download them to 2 different PCs, but it's the same, they appear as not purchased. So I looked in the iTunes purchase history (in both PCs) and there is still the info of the day of the purchase of every book (and the sum I paid for every one of them, and the "order number").
This is only for the ebooks i bought on iBooks, my music and videos and apps are all there... but NOT my books. How can I solve this? Do I have to REPURCHASE AGAIN???
IBooks Upload Files Lost If IBooks App Is Deleted?
Jul 18, 2011
I downloaded my original copy of iBooks using an obsolete but still functional Apple ID by mistake. I now would like to delete this version of the app and upload another copy of iBooks using the correct Apple ID so I can ask Apple to delete the old Apple ID once and for all. Will the pdfs and other files I uploaded for viewing in iBooks be trashed if I delete the old app or will they be waiting and accessible to the new copy of the app?
