Import music from Ipad?

Is it possible? I tried connecting it on both the center console and glove compartment. The car can read/play music but I can't get it to import. Any help is appreciated.

Isn't it possible to use Ipad as a hard drive so I can export music to my car?

It shouldn't be, no.

Here is what you can do. you need to convert the copy protected itunes music to something not copy protected and in the proper download format for the car. I know wav works. Copy to a CD or USB and download.

I use a tool called: tuneclone to unprotect the itunes music. It works by simulating a burn to a cd-rom and then storing on your computer. I output in 128 bit MP3 as it's good enough for the car with all the ambient noise.

Then copy the music to a USB or burn CD-ROM's from the images and go download.

Tuneclone can be found at: www.tuneclone.com

Have fun.

P.S. I wish the harddrives were bigger. I use a 3 gig USB and leave it in most times now.
