So, you've got music on your iPad that you don't have on your computer? It doesn't matter how you got in this predicament, maybe you've lost a hard drive (or an entire computer), or you've accidently deleted just a little too much, and for one reason or another, you don't have the original source of the music.
Syncing your iTunes library with iPad is easy. By default, iTunes automatically syncs your entire iTunes library whenever you connect your iPad to your computer. On each subsequent sync, iTunes will automatically add any new music or videos to the iPad and remove any items that are no longer in your iTunes Library.
Guide: How to Transfer Music from PC to iPad?
Step 1: Connect your iPad
Warning! if iTunes loads when you plug in your iPad, and is set to automatically sync your entire library (erasing your iPad), you MUST stop it, hit the little "X" in the upper right hand corner of the window.
Step 2: Open iTunes
Open the iTunes application on computer. Go to the "File" menu and select "Add to Library." Navigate to the music file you want to transfer to your iPad and click "Open."
Step 3: Transfer Songs to iPad
Select iPad in the Devices list. Click the Summary tab and select "Manually manage music and videos". Click "Apply". Even when you have enabled manual management, you can still sync some content automatically. Select any content tab, such as Video, to enable automatic syncing for that type of content.
After the steps above, you can add individual songs, videos, and playlists from iTunes to your iPad. Just drag the item to the iPad icon in the Devices list on the left-hand side of the iTunes Window.
With iPad to PC Transfer, you can transfer videos, music, photos and file folders from iPad to computer for backup or sharing with your friends.
