How do I transfer songs over to my I pad
I used this method once, I could see and read the movie on my iPad. Then I did it a second and third time, but then I could see but not read the files from my iPad. To be sure it was not about the video files, I took out/transfered back the first video file (the one that I could read the 1st time) and I couldn't read it anymore!! What happened??
