I love my iPad since I got it a year ago. It is great for watching movies, listening to music, playing games and reading books. But one thing that really sucks majorly is transferring files from PC to iPad. Yes, I can add files like music and video into iTunes library, and then sync iPad with iTunes, the files will be transferred to my iPad. However, as what you have experienced, this process is not always successful, let alone it is so complicate for a newbie.

It doesn't make sense that the biggest problem with using the iPad is its appalling lack of support for transferring files from computer to iPad. For you and me, it is really handy sometimes to be able to copy videos, photos, movies, music, etc to the iPad quickly so we don't have to rely on the bulky desktop or laptop.
