The Help Page "Syncing with iTunes" appears to be a previous version of iTunes. I can't sync music from the computer to the ipad. Cloud would work if I only wanted access to my music with an internet connection. I load a CD of music on my Mac and it doesn't transfer with sync. Am I missing something or has this feature been removed?
No feature has been removed. You have to import the music into iTunes before you can sync it to the iPad. Did you import the music?
Importing music in iTunes
After you import the music, you have to select it to sync in iTunes.
