    Computer won't detect my ipad

    Here's the problem; I was playing a game on the iPad (don't remember the game) and suddenly it froze and I tried to return to the home screen but couldn't so I left the iPad for a while and then it restarted by itself and then no app works

    So I tried to restore it with iTunes but I realized that the pc isn't recognizing the iPad and I tried the following:

    1-put the iPad in DFU mode
    2-put the iPad in recovery mode
    3-erase all content and settings in the settings app "it freezes on the spinning wheel screen"

    Done all that and still the pc won't recognize my iPad I tried on other computers and still nothing
    Note that I have the latest version of iTunes and tried to reinstall it but no different result


    Please help me my iPad is useless now and I really need your help

    If you have tried on multiple computers as you say and they all refuse to see the iPad in any mode then this indicates you have a hardware fault, most likely the dock connector has bent / damaged pins. There is nothing that can be done to fix this other than returning to Apple for physical repair. Sorry.

    Software or jailbreaking cannot prevent the iPad from being recognised by iTunes, especially in DFU mode.

    There are 30 pins on the dock connector. Only a few are used for charging.... It's quite likely one of the data pins which is bent...

    Have you tried to turn on the Apple Mobile Device service on your computer? It may help.
