You have a few options. The easiest is to probably just install Dropbox on your XP system and on your iPad. Drop all the documents into your Dropbox folder on your XP system and the files will automatically be copied to your iPad or any other device you install Dropbox on.

When you want to view your files, just launch dropbox on your iPad and your files will all be there. Another option would be to install on your iPad is GoodReader because it can view most files and is really great for transferring files also. Evernote also is a great tool to install on both PC and iPad.

So you have a lot of options! The Dropbox is probably the easiest to get the files backed up in the cloud and moved to your iPad. From there, you can decide on other apps.

Oh -- and another option is to just plug the iPad into your XP machine. It should come up as a USB drive. You can then just copy the files over to it.

      I have roughly 300 pictures on my iPod, and another few hundred on my iPhone. Some of these are screen shots of bank receipts, and some are just pictures that I've already backed up to my computer.
      How do I delete all of my photos/images at once? Like a bulk delete. I figure the process is the same on both the iPod, iPad, and iPhone... so someone has to know ow to do this.
      Also, I don't want to lose any of my other data, just the photos.

      Ive installed MAILBOX after getting a message from Dropbox that hooking Dropbox up to Mailbox would get me a gig of space. And Im always in front of the row for extra free space.
      But after installing it on my iPad, and trying to get Gmail into Mailbox, i get the message:
      "Mailbox needs acces to your IMAP folders in order to sync your data. Please enable your AllMail, Sent, Trash and [Mailbox] folders in Gmail settings and try again".
      When I check my settings in Gmail (which only is possible on my laptop apparently) ive notice that everything is allready as it should be.
      Pop is enabledIMAP is enabledWith deleting, auto-expunge is onNo Folder size limits
      And thats all the info in Gmail Settings for IMAP. Am I missing something? What do I have to do to get Mailbox set up and ready for my 1 gig of free space?
