Hello, It will be my pleasure to assist you with your computer today.
The only way to get files from your computer onto your iPad is through iTunes. Do you have iTunes installed?
Yes - but photos don't appear in the Library
If you open iTunes, go to your iPad, and click on the Photos tab, is the Sync Photos from option checked?
I'm sorry, i don't have my ipad with me but I haven't done that. Where is the Photos tab on the ipad? I am using iPhoto.
Sorry, should have said to select your iPad from the sidebar within iTunes on your computer. You do it all on your computer with your iPad connected to it. Click here to see a sample screenshot.
Does that screenshot help?
Yes it does - but that is where one of my difficulties arises - the Devices Heading doesn't ever show up in the left hand column.
Does your iTunes look like that or does it have a different look to it?
It looks quite like that - it certainly used to, but I think during the interminable hours I spent trying to copy the photos yesterday, that a new version of iTunes downloaded and it looks a bit different. But still largely the same.
Because the Devices heading isn't there, I don't have any of the Right hand side of the page though.
I'll give you some instructions to try to make the iPad visible.
1. Exit iTunes and disconnect your iPad and any Apple devices if they're connected.2. Click on the Start button.3. Type Services into the Start Search box.4. Click on the top Services result that appears under Programs.5. In the pop-up window that appears scroll down to iPod Service. Right-click on it and select Restart.6. Open iTunes.7. Connect your iPad.
