Hi Guys,
I'm a newbie iPad 2 owner and I could use a little help.
I have access to both Mac and Windows based computers but my new iPad has not been connected to either of them yet.
On my Mac Mini I have a folder full of e-books in ePub format which I understand is what the iPad 2 uses to read e-books.
On the iPad I have an App for e-books called iBooks.
My problem is, how do I get the e-books from my Mac Mini desktop to the iPad so that my wife can read all about Danielle Steele during the intervals when she goes to the Bingo?
Cheers for any info,
Steve

The trouble with letting people like me loose on the interweb with a debit card is that I now have the latest Mac Mini Aluminium running at 2.4 GHz with 8 GB of DDR3 RAM, 320 HDD and OS X 10.6.5 all wired up to a 70" LED screen ...... And not the faintest idea of how to use it.
QUOTE Thanks
