    Hi,
    My husband bought me a 16g ipad in jan and I wanted 32. So we bought a 32g today and traded. I downloaded my ipad onto my pc so I could restore the old onto the one. Once I added the new ipad to the computer i erased all the info and returned to factory setting. We can't seem to get our iTunes loaded to either one. We can both log into our own accounts and I tried doing the 2 libraries but we are just getting no where. Even took it up to the apple store really quick and they could not help either. I know we are doing something wrong just not sure what. Any thoughts???

    The best way to manage two iPads with two different iTunes accounts on one computer, is to have two user accounts (logins) on that computer. iTunes will create a separate library for each user on the computer.
