Transfer data from Windows 7 to i Pad 2

  rawprawn 16:36 05 Mar 2011

I am thinking of buying an i Pad 2 when it is available later this month.
Does anyone know if there is an adapter available so that I can connect it to my compter's USB to transfer files etc?

complete with all you need to connect to your PC.

What kind of files will you want to transfer?

Thanks for the answer, I want to transfer mainly data files, MS Word etc, also Photos.I just noticed that there is no USB port.
I would also need to do my banking on it, is it secure?
I have never owned an Apple so I know very little about the system.

Thanks, but I can't get your link to work.
Can you write the address in text (leave a space somewhere so it doesn't appear as an html address)

The easy way to transfer documents is to use an App like Documents To Go. It is £6 but very easy to use.

I do not understand your opening sentence.

The iPad does not have an SD Card slot or USB port only its docking connection.

The link shows the two adapters that are available that connect to the docking connection. One that gives USB and one for SD Cards. Both are for Camera and Video transfer.

Documents to Go sits on a computer and iPad and allows two way transfer of documents etc. I do not know of any way to load game patches other than through iTunes.

OK, guys i think I have all I need. I emailed my son in law who has an i Pad and he confirms what FE said.
I am going over to see the next weekend so I can have a play and learn.

bremmer. thanks your Documents To Go. is exactly what he uses.
