I am successful with syncing photos from my laptop to iPad but the subfolders do not transfer. Ie; folder 2010 on my PC has multiple folders within it with separate folder names (dates, events, etc), but the subfolders do not transfer-I simply get the 2010 folder and all the photos are listed within it.
I'm using iTunes to download photos from my PC (Windows 7) to my iPad2. Some photos download OK but some don't. With these photos I get the following information "Some of your photos were not copies to the iPad because they cannot be displayed on your iPad".
I have used the ipad camera connector to successfully import dng files from my Leica M8.2 (dng is the standard raw format for this camera). However, when i view them on the ipad the photo's resolution is terrible - about what you would expect of a 15kb not a 15mb file. I am suspecting that the ipad can only read the embedded jpeg preview in the dng file (could be very wrong on this though).
However, I was successful in emailing the photo, and the recipient received the 15mb dng file - intact with all its clarity. My disappointment is 2 fold: 1. i can't few the great detailed photos on the ipad; and 2. I don't seem to be able to transfer them from the ipad to my mac desktop computer through an itunes sync;
and 3. i can't see to find any ipad applications that will allow me to transfer these files through wifi either. If i can't get them off of the ipad, then i loose the ability to use the ipad as a storage device for my photos when I travel, and then i'm back to carrying a laptop too.

I'm wondering if there's some way I can transfer files to my ipad2 and store them in typical directories so that these common files can be launched with various apps. I've seen a million "file manager" apps that allow klugey transfers from a PC by setting up a network drive, starting the file manager app, then dragging and dropping files into the ipad, but this solution has a number of flaws for my purposes (something similar can be done in itunes, but it's far more limited):
1. I have to initiate the whole thing from my PC. This wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have to have the app actively running on the ipad too, which requires me to access both devices.
2. It still doesn't let me load the transferred files with any other apps.
3. They all have extremely limiting options as far as compatibility with file types.
What this leads to is a million file managers, each with an embedded web browser, pdf viewer, image viewer, and video player. So if I find that I like the PDF viewer of Goodreader (I do - it's excellent) but the picture viewer of readdledocs, then I have to have two distinct (and somewhat complicated) processes for transferring the different types of files over.
I'm guessing that what I'm looking for just doesn't exist, but it'd be nice to be able to actually have a universal file manager with directories. Then I could open any of my media apps and just load up any one of the compatible files.
Failing that, at the very least, I'd like a way to actually reach out to my PC and grab files to save in my various apps (like Goodreader). For instance, if I want to transfer a PDF file from my PC that has the files all shared on my network drive, and I don't want to leave my bed where I'm reading on my ipad. Possible? From what I can tell Goodreader and ReaddleDocs won't connect to network drives, and I have no FTP server or other similarly fancy file sharing technique.
Another scenario (same problem) I'm trying to address is if I'm at a friend or coworker's house and they have some files I'd like to get onto my Ipad for use/viewing (and they're too large to email). I also don't want to have to guide them through a 10 min process of setting up a network drive on their computer and transferring that way. I'd love to be able to just plug in and have them drag and drop the files or even to just grab them from a network shared directory.
Note: I'm not averse to jailbreaking if this is what it would take (when one is available for ipad2)
I have just bought my first IPAD [3 rd gen, no wifi] and one of the things I want it to do is to accept transfered word files, preferably as folders from my MAC - I just bought Keynote but it doesn't seem to work. My files are all doc and docx so I think perhaps looking into it more I should have bought Pages instead,, but I don't want to spend more money on another app if
I have many mp3 music files I downloaded from an early jazz web site to my computer, and want to transfer them to my Ipad. They are not ITune files. How can I do this? They are not organized and it would be nice if the program provided a means of doing so. I purchased my IPad in December 2012, and assume it is an IPad2.
Hard drive on my 2007 imac 24 in crashed!My last time machine save was about 9 months ago and Aperture 3 vault update was in May 10.That leaves about 4 months of loss of photos and music files.I do have a ipad will all those pictures in the past 4 months and music.How can I transfer back the files (photos and music) from the ipad/iphone to A3 or iphoto?
How do I tell my iPad to only synchronize with one computer? I can change settings before connecting to another computer, or I can slide the sync bar quickly when I connect to another computer. But I'd like to make a setting and not worry.

Hi all... Like the topic says, I'm gifting an IPad for Christmas, and I would like to load some pictures of good times and family onto it prior to giving it to them.I pre-ordered mine when they first came out, and cannot remember if you HAVE to use ITunes to "activate" it like the IPhone... If this is the case, then how can I go about getting it activated, and syncing photos onto it? They have an IPhone, so they already have an ITunes account... Or is it even possible?Information : AlienWare Area 51 ALX Windows 7 Intel I7 975, 2x 2GB ATI Radeon 5970, 12GB RAM.
Hello, I'm using a video camera in HD 720p and I'm loading my clips in Iphotos as MP4, but when I want to synch my Ipad, it doesn't recognize the clips. Do I need to transform those clips in M4V or something else ? Information :macbook pro Mac OS X (10.6.4).
Quick question: How do I turn off the iPad screen when synchronizing with the iTunes. Is this even possible? Are there settings I am overlooking? Or perhaps a third-party app which can make it happen?I have a large library and often leave my iPad connected to iTunes for several hours at a stretch. The bright glowing screen can be a big distraction, and, more importantly I am very worried about pixel burn-in.
I am a very happy owner of an iPad since one week ago. I syncronized it with one computer, jailbreaked it, and installed some apps. Now i am using another computer (i travel a lot) and want to syncronize again to install another app, but iTunes is telling me that the apps will be deleted. I read some time ago that by changing id number in iTunes you could sync the iPhone with different computers. Is it working also in the iPad? Is there any way to be able to syncronize with two computers without having to reinstall all apps?
Somehow I was able to do this once before, since most of my bookmarks are on iPad now. Been trying to sync them again from PC so IPAD has ALL my bookmarks and it's not syncing the new ones. Went into iTunes on my PC and it says that all my bookmarks will automatically sync to iCloud so can't figure out what else I can do. It should be done automatically every time I sync iPad to PC!
I have installed Comic Rack on my Desktop along with a few comics from their site. I'm trying, unsuccessfully, to synchronise my iPad 3 with Comic Rack. CR recognises my iPad but when I then expect it to transfer a comic across to the iPad, nothing happens.
I have found a 'Synchronise' small black window on the iPad but the 'Synchronise Now' is greyed out. Is that anything to do with anything and, if so, how do I get that to work?
