Each device is set and enabled for Airdrop, but I don't "see" the iPad mini in my Airdrop window. What am I doing wrong please?

From Apple:

Quote:
Note: AirDrop for iOS supports only iOS 7 devices. You cannot use AirDrop on iOS to share with OS X, and OS X users can't use AirDrop to share with iOS devices.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

The simple explanation is that iOS does not allow access to the underlying filesystem which I imagine won't change anytime soon. As such, if you need to share files, you may want to look at something like Dropbox.
