Just a suggestion have you tried going into itunes highlight your ipad select the summary button then scroll to bottom select the option to manually control music and vids. Then you should be able to drag music in from your music library but NOT playlists best of luck

To reinforce what squirrell is telling you, the key is getting all of the music into your I tunes library. Then selecting the stuff you want to sync to your pad. Also remember that if you buy music directly on the pad from I tunes, you need to transfer to I tunes when you do your next sync to get it into I tunes on your computer.
In it tunes on the computer, there should be a playlist called 'purchased'. Anything you bought should be there. You can then sync all or some of it back to the pad. Other music you have on the pc, just include the location of those files in your I tunes library, and they will be available for syncing. Again, as much or as little of it as you want.
Think of I tunes on your computer as the 'master file', Put a copy of every thing there, and then sync only the stuff you want onto your pad.
If you are missing some purchased music, go to the store from your computer, you can redownload it for free as long as you are using the same user id.
