Dear iPad forum users,
I bough an iPad a few month's ago back at Portugal. I plugged it a XP machine running the latest version (at that time) and I sync'd it.
Everything was fine, I came to Angola, where I am right now, and I decided that I wanted to transfer some stuff through the computer. That's when the problems started.
The computer didn't recognize the device, didn't even hear that little noise when you plug a device. I restored the iPad to factory settings and tried again, and again to no avail.
After reading a long list of posts and solutions, trying them and getting nowhere near fixing this I resigned and came here for help, I hope someone can help me fix the problem.
Details that may help to fix my problem:
Computer: Toshiba A300-18A, Windows 7 x64;
Device Manager: indicating 1 unrecognized Mass Storage Controler (code 28);
Other points: I have an iPod that syncs perfectly; I'm using the latest iTunes version; I'm not using antivirus, windows firewall; I tried plugging it in safe mode to no avail; I installed iTunes on 2 macs and on both the same problem happened; I also installed iTunes on another 2 laptops (x2 vista) and the same problem again happened; I also installed iTunes on a desktop (XP) and it recognized something but afterwards the same problem happened; the iPad is as new.
I'll be checking the post tomorrow morning hoping someone has something I can try to fix this problem.
