The best way to transfer music from computer to iPad is via iTunes. As soon as connected to a laptop or desktop computer, the iPad will automatically sync with the iTunes library on your computer, or you can change the configuration settings for manual media synchronization. After the synchronization is complete, your music is stored in the iPod application on the iPad. It’s actually quite easy to transfer music to iPad from your computer as well as create playlists and organize your music. You may follow bellow instructions to get music put on iPad.
Step 1. Plug the iPad USB cable into the bottom of the iPad, and plug the other end into your computer’s USB port.
Step 2. Download iTunes onto your computer if not yet, then start the iTunes program and complete the iPad registration, checking the options you want to have.
Step 3. Click on your iPad name, in the left hand column of the iTunes interface. The middle section should now be blank if you have no songs already on your iPad. If there are some, they will appear in a list in the middle section.
Step 4: Click “Library”, which should appear at the top of the left hand column. Here, you’ll see any songs you have copied into your iTunes library from your CDs or other sources.
Step 5: Add music to your iPad from your CDs by inserting a CD into your computer CD drive and click the pop up “Import” button to copy those songs into your library. You can then select songs by title or album and drag them onto the name of your iPad to move them there.
Step 6: Purchase songs from the iTunes store to add new music or songs you don’t have on CD directly to your iTunes library and then onto your iPad.
