pdf files not transferring

Post by boonera »

I have followed the instructions for transferring pdf scores (e.g. Classic Real Book) from my PC to iGigbook on my ipad.
the iTunes window on my PC shows those books as in the iGig app on my ipad.
at my.igigbook.com, under "manage my book settings", all the books I tried to transfer are checked as "active"
however, when I open igigbook on my ipad, only two of the books ( JazzLTD and TheBook) appear in my book list ).
( and none of the songs in those missing books appear in song search)
Can anybody help?thanks

If the files are in My Scores, take a look at Index Linking 101: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=1529

Try rounding up the PDF files that you have in your possession and add them to your device because without them you can't link them to an index.

Not sure what you mean by “rounding up”? All the files I tried to transfer are on my PC in one folder. Two of them made it to my book list, the rest didn’t….

Try this:

Press the home key or equivalent to exit iGigBook and then press the home key or equivalent twice and swipe all apps up. Launch iGigBook and refresh the My Scores view.
