Are you looking to transfer music from PC to iPad? You probably already know the common and traditional method of doing it. That is, to sync iPad music to your computer using iTunes. This is the ‘obvious’ solution, but what if we tell you that it’s not necessarily the easy solution? Well, believe it or not, we’re not joshing’ you on this one. So, continue reading until the very end to be introduced to one of the easiest ways that you can sync iPad music to your computer (completely stress-free!)
Just so that we have a point of comparison, let’s breakdown how you would go about using the actual iTunes software in order to automatically sync your songs from PC to iPad using the ‘sync’ features that are offered. The actual point of this tutorial is to make sure that your settings are changed from the default (which has the automatic music sync option turned off.) Similar settings changes will need to be made if you want iTunes to transfer other types of files through automatic sync as well — but we’re only going to be demonstrating the music option today.
The actual first step of this process is to make sure that your iPad is connected to your PC! Once it’s properly connected, you should be able to see and click the iPad icon (pointed out in the image below.)
Clicking the iPad icon will move you to the settings menu for your iPad. On here, you need to move to the “Music” settings so that you’ll be able to turn on the automatic sync options for your iTunes music. To do so, Simply click the box beside the large “Sync Music” option.
A quick note. Part of the reason that transferring music from PC to iPad is so difficult is because of something that we like to call the “Remove and Sync” error. You’ll know you’ve gotten this error if you see the message pop-up on your screen (refer to the image below.)
This is fine if you’re okay with iTunes deleting some of the files (Non-Apple Music) from your iPad library. All you need to do is click the Remove and Sync button.However, if you don’t want your files deleted, you’re going to need another option (for which we have a recommendation down below.)
Once you have turned on the “Sync Music” option, click Apply to save your changes, and you should now be able to automatically sync music from PC to iPad whenever you sync your iPad to your computer!
We’ve been teasing this for quite a while now, but we do have a recommendation as far as a ‘third-party’ software goes. This program, called iMusic will allow you to do practically the same thing. However, it erases any chances of your files being deleted — which is big for some people. Now, as for what else it can do for you, we’ve compiled a list below.
