    I updated my iPad 2 to 4.3.1 and I cant get either of my computers to detect the iPad. One is win7 and one is Vista. Used different cables too. Anyone else having this issue? My iPhone 4 is detected.

    Sometimes it helps to restart Windows, especially if you normally just use the Hibernation mode.

    Is the iPad charging, either from the computer or AC? If not, you may have a problem with your dock connector since you've tried 2 different cables and 2 computers.

    My xp machine wouldnt recognise my iPad 2 at all when I first pugged it into iTunes when it arrived a couple of days ago.

    Turns out I needed to update the drivers in the windows device manager.

    Works a treat!

    I have my Ipad 2 connected to an Acer 8930 and also have problems with connecting. I need to change to the USB on the other side and back whenever I reconnect.

    yup, try plugging the usb in different ports. also, have you updated the ipad usb drivers on your computer? this was a must in my case.

    I had a similar problem where iTunes wouldnt recognize iPad2 & iPad2 kept asking me to connect to iTunes. I tried everything in this forum(switching USB ports, attempted to update USB drivers(I already had the latest) etc) but nothing worked. Windows kept seeing iPad 2 as a digital camera. I then installed the LATEST iTunes version, 10.2.2 & that worked. Hope this helps.
