NucleophilicRxn's (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5470980?start=30&tstart=0 fourth from the bottom—for some reason the link will not work.) solution also solved the issue for me. Now, if apple could only improve their !@# forum system so that "correct answers" could be voted on by users aside from the original poster. What an enormous waste of time otherwise. It is like searching for a needle in a haystack, or worse because of the profusion of wrong answers.

So, I have been LOST in this discussion trying to find out what I originally searched a solution for: I have PDFs on my IPAD and cannot get to my DESKTOP macbook pro. I can sync all I want without ANY issues from desktop to ipad ie macbook pro -----> ipad. What I cannot do is sync the pdfs in ibooks on my IPAD onto my macbook pro and have them show up in ibooks. ie ipad --------> macbook pro = complete fail. Can anyone please respond and provide any work arounds they have found to this? Thanks
Having ibooks seperate from itunes is ridiculously stupid and makes as much sense as the faceook ios now needing Messenger
Solution for me. For some reason it put all of my PDF's in an Unknown folder under Music in Itunes. Here is where I found them although since I store and backup to an external drive your file structure might look a bit different.
Music/Itunes/Itunes Media/Music/Unknown Artist/Unknown Album
That is it. They were all right there! Nothing else I tried led me to a solution and I searched through everything.
Hope this Helps someone out.
Found a fix. If you're trying to sync ibooks from ios 7.1.1 to Mavericks 10.9.3, go to Store > Authorize this Computer, and then enter your apple id username and password that you used to download the books on your ios device. Once this is done, all your books should appear under "All Books". This just worked for me. Hope i could help (:
