    this is to remind you that there are some people (at least one) who appreciate sites such as yours, where information may be had openly and easily. i want to say that even if you get no comments on your postings, it does not mean they are not appreciated.

    sometimes it really is offering up your service with no thought of return.

    thanks, david.

    Hi Wayne,
    I followed all your steps to a “T” and I got 10 video clips on my iPad Air.
    I have a home video clip that I want to add to the other 10 in my iPad “Home Videos”
    But when I got to step “5” and pressed in the “Sync” button (it’s “Apply” button on my machine) I got the following:
    – The iPad “Thuy’s iPad” is synced with another itunes library on “Nhutwindows8″. Do you want to erase this iPad and sync with this itunes librafry?
    – An iPad can be synced with only one itunes library at a time. Erasing and syncing replaces the content of this iPad with the contents of this itune library.
    – I have 2 choices at the end of this message:
    ” Erase and Sync” “Cancel”
    I did try once on an earlier time. Sure enough, everything was erased

    I want to keep everything on the iPad.
    Please help and thank you so so much

        Hi Wayne,
        Thanks for a quick reply.
        You have a good question. I’m not sure about the 1st time when everything got erased, except for the LAST video clip.
        The 2nd time, I use a different computer:
        The old computer (windows 7) died. I used a new computer, with windows 8.1, when I encountered the erasing problem.
        Thanks for your assistance

        You can only sync an iPad to 1 computer at a time. It is a pain but it is the way Apple does it. So if your first computer is gone, you’ll lose those videos if you sync the iPad. There *may* be a way to get those old videos off the iPad using some special software not from Apple but it will be tricky.

    Hi Wayne,
    I’m sorry if I didn’t make myself clear.
    The old computer was dead, so the first 10 video clips was were gone
    With the new computer (windows 8.1), I started everything from point 1: Using “Handbrake”, I got the first 10 video clips back on the iPad. Around 2 weeks later, I found another video clip I like. So using “Handbrake” again, I tried to drag it to the iPad when the erasing message came up,
    Being a 1st grade in computer learning, I believe there is something that I don’t quite understand from your answer. I sincerely apologize for my shallow computer knowledge.
    Please help. Thanks again
