If you want to synchronize your Apple iPad 2 so you can put some music or videos from your PC, you are at the right place. Read carefully and follow the instructions how to synchronize your Apple iPad 2 and PC. Have a look at ipad to get more info on this.

You have a couple ways to make the connection:

USB cable. Use the cable that comes with your iPad to attach the USB connector to a free USB port on your Mac or Windows PC, and then attach the dock connector to the 30-pin connector port on the bottom of the iPad.

Dock. If you shelled out the bucks for an optional iPad dock (a regular dock or a keyboard dock), first plug it in to a power outlet. Using your iPad’s cable, attach the USB connector to a free USB port on your Mac or Windows PC, and attach the dock connector to the 30-pin connector port on the back of the dock. Now insert your Apple iPad into the dock’s cradle.

Synchronizing Your iPad Automatically

Depending on the storage capacity of your iPad – 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB – you may be able to transfer all your computer’s iPad – friendly digital content onto the iPad hard drive. If that sounds like the way you want to go, then you can take advantage of the easiest of the iPad synchronizing scenarios, in which you don’t have to pay any attention in the least: automatic synchronization. Because you know all the iPad – able content on your Mac or Windows PC is going to fit, all you have to do is turn on your iPad 2 and connect it to your computer.

iTunes opens automatically, connects to your Apple iPad 2, and begins synchronizing. And just for your information, the USB port also begins charging your iPad’s battery. Note that you can’t use your iPad while the synchronization is running. However, one of the iPad’s nicest features is that you can interrupt synchronization. When the Sync in Progress screen appears, you see the Slide to Cancel slider at the bottom of the screen. If you ever need to bail out of the synchronization to perform some other duty, drag the slider to the right. iTunes cancels the synchronization so you can go about your business. When you’re ready to restart the synchronization, click the Sync button in iTunes.

When the synchronization is done, you need to do two things:

In iTunes, click the Eject icon beside your iPad in the Devices list.

Remove the dock connector from the iPad’s 30-pin connector port.

Bypassing the automatic synchronization

Sometimes, you may want to connect your iPad to your computer, but you don’t want it to synchronization automatically. For example, you may want to connect your iPad to your computer just to charge it. Or perhaps you just want to use iTunes to check how much free space is left on your iPad 2 or to check for updates to the iPad software.
