If I purchase an audiobook from Audible.com I can use Safari on my Macintosh to download the file to my computer and/or iTunes.But Safari on the iPad does not let me do that. It says "Safari can not download this file"I know the iPad doesn't do SWF/Flash content. But why can't it download audiobooks.This means I have to bring a computer along with the iPad to listen to new audiobooks on the iPad
Is anyone out there familiar with Audible? It is site to buy audiobooks. Anyway, I would like to purchase books right from my iPad, which is fine, but when I go to download my book, it tells me I cannot download on Safari. I went to help on the audible site and it tells me to configure iTunes for audible. iPad has iPod not iTunes right? I do have audiobooks on my iPad but these were transferred from my pc. I guess I am asking if anyone knows if I can download a book directly to my iPad.
When I try to download a file, I get a blank Safari page that partly loads, but no indication of whether or not the file downloaded or where it might go. Does it just detect a non-iPad friendly file and disregard?
I use the Social Security web site for the business I do for them. If I log in with my mac using Safari the files load just fine. PC they load fine.. Iphone or Ipad not so fine. I tried Opera and Atomic Web and still wouldn't load.
I am having trouble viewing certain websites, in particular my Lotus Notes company email, on my new iPad. I cannot see all my folders and in general, have a difficult time doing a number of things on several other web sites. I thought it might have been the Safari web browser. I attempted to download Firefox with the hope that it's formatting might allow me to see what I typically do on my company PC.
Three questions: 1 - Will Firefox or any other webs browser allow me to see most web sites like I typically do on my work PC? 2 - Is there a setting on my iPad or within Safari that might accomplish the same goal? 3 - Why my iPad doesn't allow me to download Firefox..."Safari cannot download this file?"

I would like to get an ipad and use in place of my notebook computer when traveling.I know I can set up the email and that wouldn't be a problem.it is the files I would need.I have several word and excel files that I would need to access (that I currently have on my notebook),create and edit.Would it be possible with the iPad and would I need to download an app for that?
Information: MacBook Pro Mac OS X (10.4.10) purchased 9-2007
Hopefully, This will help someone save an hour on the phone with Apple. The rep i spoke to was nice but at the end of 30 minutes had no answers, Saying that he had no ipad, just an i-touch "but they are the same thing" .... no, sir, they are not. He ended up suggesting i take the Ipad to the apple store.. They would not have any way to troubleshoot this issue. I buy audio books from www.audible.com, And they show up in my itunes library, but i was having trouble getting them to synch to ipad, As they appeared in my library, but do NOT appear on the ipad synch screen (BOOKS TAB) in itunes.
