Thanks in anticipation for your help. I have just bought an ipad2 for my husband for his 65th birthday as we have never had an i anything and he has been complaining recently about being lapped in the technology field!
I have charged it up, downloaded i tunes on to our main pc and connected the ipad to the usb port all as directed. The ipad comes on but just sits there with a picture of a usb lead and a thing for i tunes with a gap of about an inch and can I get it to do anything else? No zilch.
I then tried it with our Samsung netbook via the wi fi network and would you believe it it synched all on its own! It shows it is connected ok to the wi fi network but when I open the app store it just says 'loading' but nothing loads. Similarly if I try to connect to safari or mail it just does nothing.
So obviously either I am not doing something right or there is something missing on the computers.
I have been generally calm but feel more suicidal this afternoon as he has been away windsurfing this easter and returns tonight. Not much of a surprise for him at the moment!
Any help much appreciated.
