I bought a new desktop computer, and installed the iTunes program on it, the intention being to sync it with my iPad2. Had done this successfully with the old computer, which is now gone.
When I plug the iPad into the new computer, the iTunes shows my apps in the "graphic, but the apps are completely missing from the main directory.
I pushed the Backup and Sync buttons numerous times, but still no good. Also tried dragging from the graphic into the directory, not really expecting that to work either (it didn't).
With that main directory empty, am dead in the water.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
Sincerely, Frank F.
