    Sorry for the delay. 3.2.1 is the version. I was going along fine till I tried to download a calculator and was told I needed version 4. I had no idea there were updates. I tried plugging into itunes and following prompts but it syncs form hours to no avail. Thanks for anynhelp you can offer.

    Well that is a museum piece, you'll need to upgrade to iOS 5.1. First of all make sure that your version of iTunes on your computer is the very latest. Then try to upgrade again.

    Depending on how much stuff is on your iPad and if you've not backed up in ages, a backup can take many hours.

    Have you done regular backups on your iPad to iTunes? If you haven't done this it will take quite a long time to do if you have a lot of apps etc on your iPad.
    We had another member recently who was upgrading their iPad from version 3. It's a huge process to jump up across so many updates and he was given some advice from one of our very knowledgeable Moderators, have a look

    Let it run all night and no go. I wish apple had notified me about the upgrades. Maybe it was in the news but I never saw it on my screen. I really am ok with 3.2.1 but would like a calculator. I take it that restore would get me 5.1 at the cost of whatever I have loaded now. Thanks for your help

    Do you have many apps and have they ever been backed up? The time it takes for the ipad to backup is dependent on what you have on your ipad. You will need the latest version of iTunes installed and it's a good idea to disable your virus protection and/or firewall? If you haven't I suggest you try the backup again as not disabling this could lead to it timing out. I'm hoping this is what has happened. If this works now, you can still try and update and hope for the best, otherwise you will need to restore.
    Let us know how you go.
