The fail safe way to transfer files from a computer to your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch...
While transferring files from your computer to your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch, is an easy enough task when you know what to do, it isn’t immediately obvious how to go about doing so; that’s because Apple mobile devices aren’t designed with a file system with viewable folders, which means you have to transfer the files directly to app with which you wish to view it.
To do this, simply connect your device (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch) to your computer using the 30pin to USB wire provided with your Apple product.
How Transfer Files From iTunes To Computer
The iTunes window should pop up automatically. If it doesn’t, navigate to your programs and open it. Your device will show up in the right hand column of iTunes; click on it and you will taken to the device summary.
Next, go to the tab labeled apps and you should see a list of all the programs on your device. Underneath that list, you’ll see another list labeled File Sharing.
From this list you’ll be able to select what app you would like to transfer the file to. Once you’ve clicked on the app you’ll then be able to browse locations in your computer and select the files you wish to transfer.
As the clip mentions, this isn’t the only way to transfer files to your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Some new apps offer wireless transfers, however the method mentioned above works for all apps.
