I'm in Aghanistan and I bought a couple of books off of itunes from a MWR (morale, welfare and recreational) computer.  I put the books on a thumb drive to take back to my personal computer in my room and then sync them to my ipad.  Well as i went to sync it prompted me to authorize the books.  I can't authorize the books I just bought because I do not have personal internet where I'm at.  Now I've done the same thing with apps from itunes off the MWR computers and it's never given me a problem(that's actually how I got ibooks for my ipad).  Is there a way to bypass the authorizing part when sycing the books onto my ipad?  Or some type of loophole where I can alter the books to make it not ask me to authorize something I just purchased?

iPad, Windows 7

    Sorry but I do not know of any way around your problem - apps are fine but I do not think it will be possible to get your books until you can eventually sync with iTunes on your own PC.


    Hope other members may know differently - and very best wishes and good luck where you are.

    You can just redownload them right on the iPad, but you need Internet for that :(. Open iBooks and select store, either go to purchased or search for the books and redownload. Again that would require Internet.
