    Trouble after installing OS 5

    Before upgrading I used to be able to synch to my Mac at home and talk to my PC at work to copy files back and forth to good reader and iPad Office.

    Now the PC at work reports the iPad is in "recovery" mode and wants to wipe the iPad before continuing......how can I fix this?

    Yesterday when I plugged the iPad into my windows computer it DID recognize the USB device and I was able to transfer some files back and forth. Today the windows computer is back to not recognizing the USB device and finding the iPad in recovery mode when I force itunes on my iPad.

    Having a look at your problem and thought I'd just ask if you have done these steps which are really the first steps to try when you have a problem. Give them a try and see.
    From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar along the bottom. It will show all the apps that you have opened at one time or another. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly, I do mine every night. Check and see if it is operating now, if not a restart is in order.

    Restart: Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will start again. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running smoothly. Now see if it is operating. If not a reset is the next step.

    Reset: Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. This is a reset. Let us know how you go, good luck!!
