The photos app can only sync one folder at a time. If you want to put multiple photos onto the Pad then you need to move those photos into the same folder.

I have got 2 different albums on the iPad. One of them is called camera roll and the other one is new folder. Each time I put pictures in the new folder, the old ones disappear. How can I get the ones which disappeared back???

Here's a way that can happen:
On the Mac, when syncing to the iPad, the Mac's iPhoto app is involved. iPhoto has a storage mechanism known as "Events". You may have a sync rule set up in iTunes that says something like "Sync the most recent 5 events with my iPad." That is quite common, and perhaps a default (I don't remember - but it is what I do).
So if that's the case, introducing new photos to be synced may well have a new event created which would knock the sixth oldest event out of the current sync.
Bottom line: While your iPad is connected to iTunes, go to the Photo tab and check your sync rule.

Did you sync them on from your computer? if so you need to put them back on from your computer.
If you don't have copies anywhere else, then you probably can't recover them
Each time you sync, do you choose a different folder via iTunes? If so, don't choose separate folders, merge those folders on your computer into one and then sync.

I don't use a mac. I got a Sony vaio laptop. I just bought this iPad last month.
Yes I copied the pictures from my laptop straight to the iPad through iTunes. I did this last time to and the old ones disappeared. How can I get them back

Another way to import photos. You can use a USB flash drive & the camera connection kit.
Plug the USB flash drive into your computer & create a new folder titled DCIM. Then put your movie/photo files into the folder. The files must have a filename with exactly 8 characters long (no spaces) plus the file extension (i.e., my-movie.mov; DSCN0164.jpg).
Now plug the flash drive into the iPad using the camera connection kit. Open the Photos app, the movie/photo files should appear & you can import. (You can not export using the camera connection kit.)

If you are pointing iTunes to a new folder with more photos each time, the old pictures get removed becuase the folder they were from is no longer being synced. As was mentioned above, move all the photos you want on the iPad to the same folder, then sync that single folder.
Inside that folder there can be other folders which will appear as Albums.

so are the pictures still on my ipad?

No, iTunes removes them with each sync. They should still exist in your PC, unless you deleted those folders.

this is what i did..
i deleted them from itunes on my laptop, then created a new folder on my laptop and put all the pictures in that folder then i put that folder on my ipad through itunes. have the old ones been deleted??

Yes, once you sync the new folder to the iPad the old ones would have been deleted from the iPad.

After doing that what pictures are now on your iPad? Is it OK?
When you sync pictures using iTunes your iPad will end up looking just like the source folder for the sync.
For example, suppose your iPad has pictures A and B on it and you sync a folder with new pictures C, D, and E. This will remove pictures A and B from your iPad and it wil now only have pictures C, D, and E.
To add pictures to the iPad you must sync a folder with the complete content you want on the iPad. Not just the new pictures. In the case above one must sync all the pictures A, B, C, D, and E.
