    Hi all,

    I bought an iPad 4 and of course the old USB cable cannot be used to sync music or data so I came across a 8 to 30 pins lightening converter on eBay that is supposed to get the job done. In the item description section of this auction, he has mentioned "audio and video output are NOT supported".

    What does that mean? I just would like to connect my iPad 4 with my computer and sync all the musics and movies so that everything gets transferred to my iPad. Will that be supported by this converter?

    You'll be able to sync them to your iPad just fine, however when using that adapter you won't be able to send audio or video to another source like a TV or stereo.

    Yes, it will work. What the disclaimer means is that you won't be able to hook it up directly to a TV.

    Just bought that item on eBay. But since I don't have my cable today, is there any way I can sync the files in my iTune with my iPad over the air or something?

    There is WiFi sync, but I wonder how you're charging the device? Also, why don't you have a cable that comes in the box with the iPad in the first place?
