Side info- I have an iPod Nano, Macbook Pro (2010, fully up to date software) and just purchased this afternoon the iPad 3.

My question: I want to transfer over just one music folder to my new iPad, just like I do to my nano, but every time I try, it insists on synching ALL my music. I can't have this happen, as it would take up most of the space.

Can anyone help me do this? The nearest Apple Store is an hour away, I hate to have to run out to them tomorrow if it is something simple- which, I'm sure it is!

Thank you in advance for any/all help/ideas!
QUOTE Thanks

On the main page of ipad info on itunes select manually manage content and then under music select the ones that you want.
