    Hi guys

    I tried to copy some tracks to my windows laptop to my ipad via USB but it kept giving a fail message.

    However it looks like they are on the ipad but they play for one second then skip to the next one and so on and so on until it finds a song I had put on before.

    Can anyone help me? Is it possible to upload to the iCloud then download to my ipad? I'm really confused

    Thx guys

    I assume you are doing this through iTunes on your laptop. Do the tracks play on your laptop?

    Yeh absolutely fine.

    I've heard of something called Dropbox, May that work?

    Dropbox might sort of work, but you'll have to play your music from the Dropbox app -- you won't be able to import the music into the iPad Music app.

    Thanks

    The music will be played on a separate app, not the music app.

    Has anyone ever heard of this problem before? Like I said the tunes were all there, time, album cover everything but it just skips through them....

    Thx mate

    Looks great but I'm not sure how it works.

    Can I download the tracks onto my ipad with this app?
