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?

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.
Audiobooks won't sync. The Audiobooks playlist is checked on the ipad sync screen. The audiobooks playlist on itunes shows multiple audible books but the ipad says no audiobooks.I've synced, checked, unchecked, rechecked, multiple times.
I was attempting to play and app on facebook. I got a message that I needed to upgrade flashplayer and I was directed to the site. When I hit the download button, I got a message that the download failed. Anyone help with this ??
past, I've dragged/dropped my Audible audio books (file extensions '.aa') into my Windows iTunes Library and then dragged them over to my iPod Classic for listening. Doing that and dropping the files onto my synched iPad does not work. The audio books seem to be listed on the iPad's ipod app under an 'Audiobooks' folder - they even say within the folder 'Audible (2 Books) but there is nothing for me to click on and play.
On my iphone, I can not download an MP3 file. When I click on a DJ's mp3 file on his web site, it plays it with Quicktime, but it won't let me save it to my device. On my iphone, I can not copy music from more then one computer. I have both a PC and a Macbook pro at home, as well as a PC at work, and I had to make an unfortunate decision which computer to copy stuff from and that's the only one I get. If I try to copy from another computer, it erases all the music off my iphone to allow me to copy from the new computer.
Following the upgrade to IOS 5, I wanted to use the iMessages app to text with other IOS 5 users. I can receive messages, but I do not get an audible alert when I receive a message and I am not finding a setting to turn one on. Is there an audible alert setting?
