Because Kindle tablets are Android devices while iPads use the iOS operating system, you can't transfer files directly between the two devices -- you must use a computer as a go-between. Connect the Kindle device to your computer via USB, transfer the music in question from the Kindle to the computer's hard drive, and then use iTunes to sync the computer with the iPad.

Transfer Music From the Kindle

Step 1

Connect the Kindle to your PC using the included USB cable. Avoid plugging the USB cable into a USB hub, if possible.

Step 2

Press "Windows-X" to open the Windows Power User menu, and then choose "File Explorer" from the menu.

Step 3

Select the "Kindle" drive from the left pane, and then open the "Internal storage\Music" folder. Your music is stored in this folder by default; if you stored it in a different folder, open it instead.

Step 4

Select the audio files that you want to transfer to the iPad, and then press "Ctrl-C" to copy them to the clipboard. To select multiple files, hold "Ctrl" as you click each file. You can select everything in the folder, including sub-folders, by pressing "Ctrl-A."

Step 5

Open a folder on your hard disk, or create a new one, and then press "Ctrl-V" to transfer the music from the Kindle into the folder. The transfer may take a few minutes, depending on the number of files and their size.

Transfer Music to the iPad

Step 1

Disconnect the Kindle from your computer, and then connect the iPad using the supplied USB cable. Launch iTunes if doesn't launch automatically.

Step 2

Select the "Music" library from the "Library" drop-down box, click "File," and then click "Add Folder to Library" to open the "Add to Library" window.

Step 3

Select the folder where you transferred the music from the Kindle, and then click the "Select Folder" button to add all audio files to the iTunes library.

Step 4

Select the iPad from the Devices list, and then click the "Music" tab.

Step 5

Check the "Sync Music" box, and then click the "Entire music library" radio button. To transfer specific music, click the "Selected playlists, artists, albums, and genres" button, and then check the albums, genres, artists and playlists you want to transfer to the iPad.

Step 6

Click "Apply" to sync your computer with the iPad and transfer the music. The transfer may take several minutes, depending on the number of audio tracks and their size. Disconnect the iPad from the computer after the transfer is complete.
