Where do I store Ebooks or PDF files so they will sync with touch as I have tried to drag across but they dont show up.

Dell, Windows Vista

    You don't put them anywhere, as iTunes doesn't sync eBooks or PDFs.

    You can email PDFs to yourself and view them from there, or use MobileFiles (from the AppStore) to access them stored on your iDisk, or use AirSharing (also from the AppStore) to mount your iPod touch on the desktop and then copy them over.

    You say "iTunes doesn't sync eBooks" but you can download them from app store as I tried a free one. I want to put my own up if I can. are you saying that the app AirSharing allows me to see the touch through windows as a drive mapping?

    Most of the eBooks you download from the AppStore are actually applications containing eBooks along with an eBook reader, and you sync those in the same way as any other App downloaded from the AppStore.

    If you have an eBook Reader that allows you to download and add extra eBooks then refer to the instructions of that eBook Reader on how to add them.

    Yes, AirSharing allows you to mount the iPod on the desktop as a wireless drive. Search the AppStore for it and read about it there, or here: http://www.avatron.com/products/

    I do this all the time and it was a requirement of mine when I moved from using a Palm PDA to using the iPod touch as a PDA. (iPod touch as PDA )

    I use eReader from ereader.com (via the App store). It will allow you to download ebooks from sources other than the App store via a wireless connection. I've also tried Stanza. Look them up on the web and see what seems to fit. I pretty much am sold on eReader as I have used it for years and it and Stanza seem about the same.

    Both support various formats and there are instructions for converting most formats to ebooks recognized by one or both of these free applications.
