    One of the things I had been experiencing when updating and getting error notices was because I didn't disable my antivirus package on WinXP. I don't remember if I read about turning off the antivirus temporarily on these forums or on Apple Support. When I tried that my update went through fine.
    You may have to put yours into DFU mode to be able to continue.

    Since you are trying to go to iOS 5.1, have a look at this tutorial: TUTORIAL - Failsafe method to restore the current version of IOS

    If the steps are followed exactly, it's a pretty good way to get the iPad on the current firmware. Good luck and do let us know how you get on.

    Hurray! Glad it worked.

    And, kudos to my fellow moderator, f4780y, who writes these most excellent tutorials (I just link to them).
