    Sync it.


    Sounds like you need to read the manual:

    If you have iTunes installed on the computer, you have to make sure it is the current version.

    Just run iTunes and go to "File > Check for Update" to check whether your iTunes is the latest one. Then, use USB cable to connect iPad with computer as well.

    After iTunes recognize your iTunes, just hit "iPad" tab under the "DEVICE" section of the iTunes sidebar. On the right screen, you can see a new window to list you all categories of iPad. Just hit "Music" tab. Check the box next to "Sync Music" and click the circle next to "Entire music library" or "Selected playlists, artists and genres." Click the boxes next to specific artists, playlists and genres if you want to sync specific music to your iPad.

    Now, you may press the "Apply" button in the bottom-right corner of the main iTunes screen, followed by "Sync" in the same area to transfer the music to your iPad.

    Should this work with regular iPad too? Sorry for the ignorance, it's my first iPad.
