Sorry to seem dense - and I'm new to ipod touch - but what is "Discover"?AdrianW said:Discover - let's you stick all kinds of files onto your Touch (including pdf, word documents, excel spreadsheets, etc). The pdf viewer is very good, you can zoom & scroll around, and it remembers your last position in the document.
Thanks very much for your help - I've downloaded it (free) from the AppStore and I will put it on my Touch later this evening.AdrianW said:
Thanks for all your help. I think I've maybe misunderstood the issue. I have some pdf files on my PC and I would like to be able to transfer them to my iPod touch so that I can read them when I'm on the move - is this possible?AdrianW said:
Happy New Year and thanks for all your help. Here is where I am:AdrianW said:You need to run Discover on your Touch, you should get a green indicator at the bottom left of the screen - touching that will show a dialog displaying a web address (something like http://192.168.1.3:8888) you need to enter that address into a browser (like Firefox or IE) on your PC. You will then see a web interface that allows you to upload files (like pdfs) to your Touch (click the "Add Files" button near the bottom right of the browser).
Once you've uploaded the file(s) to your Touch you can then browse through the folder structure (on your Touch) to the file you want to view.
This all relies on you having a wi-fi network to which your Touch can connect, and being on the same network as your PC.
Guess what? When I went back and tried again as you suggested, it worked!!!! I am ecstatic! Loading up my .pdf's as I write. Thanks very much for your help and forbearance. I am a happy Toucher at this moment!AdrianW said:Discover must be running on your touch when you enter the address into the browser on your PC (Discover is working as a web server and producing the page you see in your browser).
Double check the address you're entering - you can skip the http part, just start with the first digits (192 etc) - remember Discover MUST be running.
