Working PC won't see working iPad
I'm an IT proffesional at a large school district that deploys ipads (and some ipad2s) to faculty and some students and this is surprisingly the first ipad problem I've come across that's stumped me.
I have a windows XP laptop with the latest itunes freshly installed.
I have an iPad running iOS 4.2.1, thats recently been wiped and redeployed.
I also have 1000s more computers and a 100s more ipads
Said Laptop/itunes won't see/autoluanch itunes when ipad is connected. It displays correctly as an apple ipad in device manager.
When I connect any other ipad it sees/autolaunches itunes as expected. Other ipad is also running 4.2.1.
When I connect that same ipad into a different PC or MAC running a the lastest (or older) itunes, it sees/autolaunches itunes and I can proceed as normal.
What is it about this ipad/pc combination that refuses to make things work?
Yes, I reinstalled itunes
Yes, I tried other USB ports
Yes, the cable is known working
no, i will not reinstall windows
I'd prefer not to wipe the ipad
Your Help is appreciated
