Hi all, I am new to this forum (and also calibre). I have an iPad, which I use for reading books. The iPad is giving me problems in that when I connect it to my PC (Dell Studio with Win7 home premium), and start Calibre, the "Send to Device" icon does not appear in the toolbar.
Perhaps I am missing something? Can anyone help please?

Hi Bsibbo,

I'm afraid I have no knowledge of the iPad myself but there is a long thread about it here in the forum. Here's a link. Perhaps you will find what you need.

for an iPad the recommended way is to press the Connect button and select iTunes. The device icon will then appear. Note that this sends the books to iBooks, so if you are using a different ebook reader on the iPad there is no automatic integration with Calibre (not yet anyway).

If you want to interface more directly then you need to make sure that the Apple Device Interface plugin under Preferences->plugins is enabled. You must also not have another device such as an iPhone plugged in at the same time.
