How to Copy Files Onto an iPad?


Although larger in screen size, the iPad works like an iPod Touch by synchronizing content from iTunes to its storage drive. The device comes with a USB cable that uses a high-powered connection to transfer data between your iPad and computer, or it can be plugged into a power adapter to quickly charge. The iBooks application, included on the iPad, provides access to the iTunes bookstore, which allows you to download free and purchasable electronic books (e-books). The iPad requires iTunes 9.1 or later, which you can find on the Apple site as a free download.

Things You'll Need

  • Dock connector cable
  • Insert the dock connector cable into your iPad and the computer's USB port.

  • Launch iTunes. Select the iPad icon in the iTunes side menu, and click "Music" in the iPad's "Preferences" window.

  • Select "Sync Music" and click "Entire music library" or "Selected playlists, artists, and genres." Click the sequential tabs next to "Music" to configure the synchronization settings for your iPad.

  • Click "Apply" to save your iPad's settings, and click the "Eject" icon near the iPad's icon.
