I recently upgraded my iPad software. I had a bunch of books in iBooks, including PDF's. When I sync'ed the iPad with iTunes, most of the books disappeared from the iBooks screen on the iPad when I removed the iPad from the computer. When I reconnected the iPad to the computer, the books are still listed in iTunes under books, but they will not come up in the iPad screen and I have no way of accessing them. The buttons that I used to use to select iBooks or PDF's is gone from the iPad screen. I've lost access to dozens of books and notes I've made on these books, though the books seem to be somewhere on the iPad. What setting have I missed or messed up in the upgrade that has caused this situation? Why do you always end up with problems like this when you upgrade when the upgrade is supposedly supposed to make things simpler & easier?
iPad, iOS 4
