Same issue. I had the issue with 3.2.1 I updated it to the latest version last week...got same issue. After dozens of reboots the ipad allowed me to enter the passcode. I then restored the ipad back to factory settings, then installed my apps and content. It has now locked again this time (after about 30 reboots - still no way to get in). Called Apple...they just want to sell me a support contract. This seems to be a common issue and I can't believe this 'easy to use device' is so bl**dy temperamental. Seems from my research there is no answer out there for this issue - clearly this is a bug that is effecting many people.
If you are able to unlock it, don't put the password on. It's much tougher to get it working with the pwd enabled. I figured it was probably something in my 100 odd apps downloaded. I did a fresh install and did not recover it from backup. I've upgraded it to 4.2 and haven't jail broken it and it's behaving fine now. I do dread the "connect to iTunes" screen. But not sure whom to blame.. Apple or some random app I had.

how i restore my ipad? it is currently stuck at the "connect to iTunes" screen. I saw several of you mention it, but not give directions on how to restore. My computer also only sees it as an iPad camera, and my iTunes doesnt see it at all, does anyone know how to fix this without me having to send it back?
OK, so your computer sees the iPad because you can see the photos in the camera roll, right?
But you start iTunes and you cannot see anything?
That is strange, but the first thing to try is to reboot the PC (not the iPad). Then reconnect the iPad and start iTunes. It should see the device in recovery mode and ask you if you want to restore it...
