    I have a lot of important pdf's on my ipod touch that i want to transfer to my iphone4. This is seeming to be an impossible task. Why can i not just open in like a drive and copy the files. I have tried to figure it out by syncing and such through Itunes to no avail. Please if someone can offer a suggestion I would very much appreciate it.

    Where are your PDFs on your iPod? Are they in iBooks? If so, I believe there's a way to sync them to your iPhone. If not, I'd imagine there's a better way than emailing them all to yourself however I'm not aware of it at the moment.

    This is going to be the key to getting a useful answer. "On my iPod" doesn't tell people much; what application are you using the PDFs with?

    I just emailed myself a PDF file, opened it on my iPhone, and then selected "Open in iBooks". The PDF file is visible in iBooks on the iPhone now.

    Then I went into iTunes, selected the iPhone, went to the Books tab, and made sure "Sync Books" is checked. I synced, and the PDF file showed up in iTunes.

    Then I selected my iPad, went to the Books tab, made sure the PDF was selected, and synced the iPad.

    The PDF is now accessible in the iBooks on my iPad.

    Hope this helps!

    I'm not sure how Touch's work, but if you in fact back it up to iTunes, all the PDFs will be in your iTunes Media folder under "Books".

    Then, as mentioned above, ensure you have "sync all" under Books in iTunes when you sync your iPhone, and all should be good.

    So the PDFs are in iBooks on your iPod Touch and seanfranklin's method didn't work? Hmm...back to the drawing board then...
