Whenever I sync or try to update my iPad I get the following error msg:
"iTunes could not back up the iPad.. because a session could not be started with the iPad"
I have tried following your instructions from a previous thread regarding editing the plist ( Go to ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iTunes.plist and look for the line that reads DeviceBackupsDisabled and make sure it's set to False.) but that line does not exist in the plist. I use a mac... any more suggestions?
p.s. I also tried to set the iPad to "encrypt backup" but it would not accept any password I entered :s
