I am new to ipad, but was having no problems with the old itunes. Specifically, I need to sync my ipad to share files with Unrealbook and my pc. For the last 6 months my ipad would be immediately recognized, I would sync, go to APPS, down to sharing, and choose my app. Since I downloaded new ver of itunes, the itunes opens on the player, and I don't even see any left side options.
I know my WI-Fi is working as I hear a beep on my ipad and it is set to ON in my settings. I downloaded a copy of itunes to another laptop, but no luck. The only thing that works is to use my old pc with the old version still on there.
