load music from stranger's Mac

I wanted to load a recording of mine from my MBP onto a friend's iPad 2. With iTunes 10.5.3 open, I plugged in her iPad, switched it to manually manage music, dragged from iTunes onto her ipad in the left-hand pane, saw the little + sign, let go, and nothing happened. No copying process at all. In iTunes' left-hand pane, the recording shows up as being on her iPad, but it's grayed out and can't be played. And when I look on the iPad itself, the recording doesn't show up at all, gray or not.

What should I have done to copy successfully to her iPad?

Thank you.

Depending on the file size, try emailing it to her.

There are several ways, but an email would be simplest and least trouble, IMO.

Plugging an iOS device into someone else's iTunes is a recipe for all sorts of snags.
