    Good day guys.

    Ok iTunes 9.2 just came out.

    I am trying to add all my PDF's as books but is becoming realy daunting.

    For some reason it will not let me add whole folders of pfd's using import (apple+O)

    I can import if i select a bunch but its time consuming since i have levels and levels of PDF's

    Can anyone suggest an easier way of importing them.
    Also was this intended or maybe a bug?

    Tried that nothing at all
    no messages and does not add it

    It does give you the little + icon like you should be able to just dosnt work

    I have also tried copying a folder to my desk top and tried both ways same things. (originaly thinking maybe its something with one of other drives it did not like.)

    .pdf into iBooks

    I got the .pdf into iTunes by just dragging it there.

    I can see it in iTunes.

    It will NOT sync into iBooks. I checked in iTunes - it's set to sync all the books and it is one of the books there, but no go. What gives?!

    Exactly the same problem here - this either doesn't work or it's really counter-intuitive.

    I'm thinking we're maybe still waiting on the iBooks 1.1 update that will support PDF in iBooks? I don't see an update in the app store yet so maybe it's just a case of sitting tight until Apple release it.

    You need iTunes 9.2 + iBooks 1.1 for PDF reading to work...

    Well for me i can get PDF's in fine single files or by selecting a bunch.

    Just dont work by folder's which is why i was posting this.

    As for ibooks. In my itunes they show up fine with cover art and can add all info to them as well as when i double click on one it opens in preview.

    This is fine just wanted to know if import by folder was broken?

    Once the PDFs are added to my library...I'd like to organize them by folders. I don't see ant option for that?

    Thanks...

    I'm on Windows 7 64 bit
    and I cannot get pdf (drag drop) to iTunes 9.2
    I'm hoping it's because I need iBooks 1.1.
