    Thanks for sharing with us. I just didn't understand these 2 steps.
    1. Then I was asked to authorize the computer but that was already done.
    2. Then I imported the purchases from the iPad to the new version of iTunes

    Did you mean by authorize , that you entered your Name/Password for iTune ?
    when stating purchases , did you mean you re-Downloaded all app's
    Think before you Sync Since you may Sink
    The More Tweaks you have - Less Memory is left

    Hi, up at the very top where it says "Store" you click on it and the drop down menu appears and there is an option saying "Authorize this computer" it is for allowing content bought on a different computer to play on another one. You can play your iTunes purchases on up to 5 different computers.

    Too import purchases from the iPad to the computer you plug it in and highlight it on the left and right click. A dropdown menu will appear and you can choose to import the purchases you made on yoour iPad onto your computers iTunes.

    Thanks for the answers.

    Sorry I did not get back to you on the backup / restore - I trust you know how to do that now. I figured that you would contact Apple as you had mentioned.

    I did not know about re-importing everything - that is handy to know about.

    You can authorize up to 5 computers to be able to put all your purchases, music, etc... but you can put content on an unlimited number of devices... Between the nanos, iPods, iPhones and iTouches, I have I think 10 devices with various content - so the 5 computer thing is really pretty easy to live with, especially as you can de-authorize a computer (gaining another number back).

    Glad you are up and running again!
