Safari Unable To Download File

If I purchase an audiobook from 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

Audible - Download On Safari
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.

Unable To Download A File In Safari
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?

Safari Cannot Download This File (Firefox)
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?"

Audible Audiobooks
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, 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.

Audible Audio Books Not Playing
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.

Cannot Download MP3 File
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.

Cannot Sync - Reached The 5 Computer Limit For Audible Accounts
I am syncing my ipad to my MBP. These are all FREE apps. Now I get an error message in iTunes telling me I have reached the limit of 5 authorized computers. The message goes on talking about audible purchased (music, videos, etc). Why should this be an issue with ipad/iphone applications? I have no music purchased from iTunes on my system nor am I trying to sync anything but my calendar and apps. I see no legal text regarding how apps are the same as music.I have felt for a long time that adding video, books, and apps to iTunes has really made the service very slow and less user friendly. The constant upgrades to iTunes have created issues. If only Apple would separate the services to make them function faster. Takes 5 minutes to download a song in iTunes when it used to take 30 seconds.

Download And Save A Pdf File On IPad 2?
I just got and love my iPad2 and am learning a lot.† What I can't do is download a pdf file that is an attachment to my gmails.† It won't open the attachment nor when I click on it will it download.† I have installed both the iBook app and pdf-notes free also.† I have a number of large cross stitch charts which I have purchased in pdf format.† Several people I know use the iPad instead of printing all the pages ( can be 20+ or much more), can easily enlarge portions of the chart and with pdf-notes can highlight sections that have been stitched.† My Comcast email will open the pdf attachment using the xfinity app, but there is nothing that tells me to save it in either iBook or pdf.† I don't know what I am doing wrong.† If I have to do something to the settings,

Safari To File UPLOADS And Downloads - IOS
First off, LOVE my iPad, and am looking forward to iOS4 on it so I can get all the nice things my iPhone 4 can do I'll also preface this by saying I'm a software developer, although new to doing iOS related stuff (although I did write one app for use at work back in the 2.x days...)Anyhow, I'd really like to see the following features added to iOS:1) A way for safari to do file UPLOADS and downloads... For the uploads, I'd have no problem with them, instead of giving a full file system access, instead let you select from maybe a shared document/file repository app that responds to a special API (something that apps like Goodreader, AirSharing, etc. could then implement), and also give access to the photos section.

How To Save From Safari A PDF File For Reading?
I have good reader but I cannot foe the life of me figure out how to save from safari a PDF file for reading on my iPad. Part of the reasons for me getting an iPad was to cut down on printing....right now, I browse for journals on my iPad, copy and email the links to my laptop, download the files and resend to my iPad to use in good reader. I cannot send PDF files to another person from my iPad. I would like to figure a way around this--I have a 64 gb iPad and am barley using the extra capacity!

Also does anyone know how to download archive classics on the iPad for ise in kindle?

These instructions make it sound simple.

I suspect what I need is a downloading, file manager type of ap. I still use my laptop for the heavy lifting but want some independence on my ad.
