I reported a problem that I had on another thread, and that was that I had a connection problem. When I connected my Ipad2 to my Pc;the PC crashed. A week of trawling the Internet and asking anybody who would listen resulted in the observation from a guy in California that he had the same problem and the outcome was that Logitech drivers /software caused the conflict. So I un installed every thing Logitech; webcam mouse microphone, from my PC and connected my Ipad2 to the PC; success, I'm glad to report that this worked and I was able to sync my Ipad2 to Itunes and download my Photos and music. Having said that as the Ipad2 was a birthday present from my family If I had known the tie up between Ipad and Itunes I would have advised a normal notebook. The Ipad2 is superb, but I think the downloading option or lack off; being only Itunes stinks.
