The only observation is the space reqts. Per above, I had 150 GB of media which it estimated would require 17 GB. When I checked the ipad, it had seemed to take up about 28GB ... I checked the size of the cache folder and indeed it was 28GB. So the estimated file size was a bit off. No big deal.
One other thing .... currently when MM4 starts, it is giving me the error warning that my ipad is not available for syncing. II beelive I can desect the plugin for the ipad ( as I no longer need to sync to it directly) via Tools /Options/ Portable Devices .. correct?.
