My daughter grabbed the ipad out of the Xmas present pile and registered it on the PC. She has an ipod touch so generaly copes with itunes without problem.
When first registering it did not ask to name device etc and hug on connecting to itunes store. She disconnected. The ipad works fine via wifi.
Now when we connect it will recognise the ipad on the menu on the left, but will not take you to a synch screen. If you double-click it nothing happens. You can right click and 'eject'-it briefly then flashes 'synch' at you but does not in fact synch anything. Running the diagnostics for connectivity and synch reveals no issues.
We have already downloaded a fair few apps so don't want to reset the ipad fro fear of losing these.
