    I just purchased an iMac and would like to use it for synching my iPad. I synched the iPad prior to this with my PC. Anyone know how this can be done without having all my iPad content wiped out?

    My first guess is that you'll need to transfer your media content from the PC to the iMac, then do the syncing with the iPad.

    I would expect that when you first plug it into the iMac, it will give a warning saying that the iPad is set to sync with another computer. But this shouldn't bother you as long as you have moved the identical content onto the iMac.

    You need to have everything transferred from you PC to Mac and set up syncing from the beginning again. Everything will be wiped off the ipad and put back on from the Mac.
